TerminalFour version 8

The University's content management system, TerminalFour Site Manager version 8 (T4v8), is managed the digital communications team.

Access to T4v8 will only be granted to University staff who have completed the required training to an appropriate standard as determined by the digital communications team.

Moderator training

Most users who require access to T4v8 are content coordinators for a particular department, unit or School. These content coordinators may gain moderator access to T4v8 provided they meet the content coordinator role descriptor and have completed the required training.

Moderator access allows users to add, publish and delete web pages and web content.

There may only be two moderators per web page (except in rare exceptions where additional moderators have been agreed by the digital communications team).

Required training for moderators is:

  • Writing for the web
  • T4v8 moderator training (includes reading material, exercises and a quiz)

To request training, please email itservicedesk@st-andrews.ac.uk

Revoking access

In order to protect the integrity of the University’s website, the digital communications team will occasionally perform audits of T4v8 users.

Users may have their access revoked if:

  • they have not logged in to T4v8 for over six months
  • they consistently break house style or content and design standards.

Users who no longer work for the University will be removed.

The digital communications team will endeavour to contact users in the first instance to determine where a problem may be occurring. If relevant, the team will provide additional training or support before revoking access.

If a user’s access is revoked, they will need to complete the required training again in order to regain their access, and they may need to undergo additional testing.

Where a user no longer has access to T4v8, they may request content updates or amendments by submitting a request to itservicedesk@st-andrews.ac.uk
