Permissions: Authors vs. Publishers

Modified on Thu, 03 Mar 2022 at 12:06 PM

Users who are trained and allowed access to the Web Content Management System (CMS) fall under 2 groups: Authors and Publishers.  

Authors have the permissions to create, edit, and delete pages; as well as work with the Assets system in order to upload and manage image and document assets.

Publishers have the same permission set as Authors, with one main exception: The Publishers group are the only group allowed to publish to the live website.  We recommend you to consider only up to 2 people in your unit to be designated with this permission/access.

Both groups have the same general permissions when it comes to editing within the CMS, as well as the ability to advance their webpages in workflow.

When you send a request for training to, please be sure to identify which person(s) should be assigned which role.  We recommend that you have no more than two (2) Publisher-based persons when requesting access to your web section.

PLEASE NOTE:  You can only login to CMS using your Morgan credentials.  The password you would use to log in is your Morgan password (the CMS does not manage passwords). 

User accounts (firstname.lastname), not group accounts, will only be allowed in the system.

Additionally, no student accounts are allowed access in the system.  Should you have a student worker that you wish to assist with managing your web content, you will need to send a request to our I.T. Service Desk, requesting that a staff account be created for the student.  If approved, that information will be shared with either the student and/or the requestor, not us.  You will need to notify us of the approval and username details PRIOR to receiving access to the system.
