- Can I use the Content Management System as an Intranet?
Can I use the Content Management System as an Intranet?
Yes! The ability to create permission groups and administer users gives you the ability to create a site that is accessible only to authorized users. Permission groups give you even more flexibility to show/hide information to different types of employees.
- What are Permission Levels and how are they Beneficial?
What are Permission Levels and how are they Beneficial?
Permission levels control and limit access to information and authoring capabilities to ensure that information on your site is only being authored by individuals with the permission and knowledge to do so. They provide levels of access to the website content through a username and password to update, edit, publish or view content.
Permission levels are assigned by the CMS Administrator based on the content the administrator wants a person to be able to access. This allows the Administrator to assign content tasks to their staff. It also allows the Administrator to assign logins to visitors to view private content.

We are LOVING the web site...so user friendly in making changes!
In addition to always being available when we needed them and responsive to all of our questions, they were able to take our ideas and turn them into a functioning site that exceeded all of our expectations.
From creating new pages to adding customer surveys, it's very easy to make updates to our website. It's also very reassuring to know that we've got technical support on the other end.
It is so easy to update our website and the design team was able to develop the exact image we were looking for!
