LDP Forms Enhancements
Enhancements to LDP Forms in version 10.4 comprise two new form element types, including a new date/time picker, plus the option for CAPTCHA, an advanced field for form customization, and a URL redirect option upon form submission. Updates also make it easier for CMS users to add all submitted form values within email messages.
Tag Management allows CMS users to tag content within the system, enhancing the content search and repurposing capabilities of OU Campus. Tags are account-wide and can be applied to files (pages, images, documents, and other binaries), folders, assets, and RSS items. Tag Management provides CMS administrators with a simple interface to manage tags, and CMS developers can query for tags or related content at the template level.
The Notes Gadget allows OU Campus CMS users to add public or private notes to any file or asset within the site. All public notes are available for viewing by other OU Campus users that have access to the file or asset. CMS users can also create private notes for their own viewing and can filter notes based on a date range, as well as edit and delete their own notes at any time.
The Bookmarks Gadget provides CMS users with quick access to their most visited locations in OU Campus. CMS users can bookmark files, assets, custom reports, and more. Bookmarks are searchable and can be organized in folders, plus reordered via drag-and-drop functionality. To run Custom Reports, administrators can bookmark the results and reports will run each time the bookmark is accessed from the gadget, ensuring up-to-date information.
OU Campus™ for Mobile
Released alongside version 10.4, OU Campus for Mobile allows for on-the-go access to workflow, messaging, reports, and user management. Mobile users of the CMS can approve content for publishing, decline or reassign content, check their inbox and reply to messages, and see what content is checked out, pending approval, recently published, and more.
