Our training team provides two reoccuring webcasts, open to any Omni CMS user, teaching you about the CMS and how to use it.
Monthly Orientation TrainingLink to this section
This webcast occurs on the second Friday of every month. It overviews how to use Omni CMS and is intended both for new users who need an introduction to the CMS and returning users who could use a refresher. It lasts about two hours.The next monthly orientation training will be held on:
Friday, February 11th, at 10:00 AM PT.
This training takes place in an Omni CMS sandbox and walks through the basic Omni CMS interface. If your college or university already has Omni CMS, you can follow along there, as the platform functions are the same. If you're a new customer and your implementation hasn't been completed yet, please contact our helpdesk to request a sandbox.

These forty-five to sixty minute sessions are held on the last Tuesday of every month, and go greater into depth with Omni CMS, focusing on a different topic or technique each session. They span a range of experience levels, from beginning administrator to advanced developer, so read webcast descriptions carefully to determine if it's the right fit for you.

This session will go beyond the basics covered in a Monthly Orientation session to go over some of the features, tabs, and gadgets in Omni CMS that can support your daily tasks, from managing files, workflows, scheduled actions, and more.
This session will also clarify some details about user level differences where appropriate, all the way up to administrator levels, in order to demonstrate how these features differ for different kinds of users.
