What is RedDot?

My Department or Area Needs Web Pages in the College Site. What Is the Process?

The process for new sites or sites converted from the old environment to the new Mainsite Department pages is as follows:

  • A Department Head or other person designated to develop a set of publicly-facing web pages can request a site via email through Paul Matus;
  • Paul will need to know who will have permission to develop and place content on the site (authors) and who will approve the content for publication (editor);
  • He will discuss what you want your site to be like to aid him in the site's setup and provisioning;
  • The site will be setup in a staging environment while it is in development;
  • Arrange for Training.
  • Develop your site and upon completion, request a review by Drew Fawcett;
  • Upon approval by Drew, Paul moves the site to the live environment;
  • Once live, the site editor is responsible for keeping the site current and for all published content.

Who Has Access to RedDot and My RedDot Site?

Only those designated as Authors and Editors for your site in RedDot will have permissions to develop and maintain your group of web pages.
