Cascade Training Materials

Announcement-July 20, 2017

For all new MUG members signing up, Cascade will be updating their interface on August 12th. We are having a training for everyone on August 8th at 2pm. We will have follow up trainings after that to be announced. I will not be doing any Cascade trainings between now and August 8th. If you have updates that need to be made, please pass them on to me at jill-norton@northwestern.edu and I will gladly take care of them for you!

If you sign up here for MUG, I will add you to the August 8th invite.

Thanks so much!-jill norton

Cascade Reminders

  • Name all files, folders, and pages all lower case, no spaces, hyphens only
  • Carousel images MUST be images, not fliers or text
  • Always use the 't' tool before pasting any content into Cascade
  • Whenever adding/deleting/changing pages in Cascade, you will need to publish from the Base Folder
  • Any changes to Planit Purple or Machforms require a Cascsade publish to make those changes appear on your live site.

Cascade Content Types

There are several types of page types in Cascade that you can use. Here are examples of them being used now. Please contact Jill Norton if not sure what type works best for your content.
