Huntsman Website FAQ
UPDATING EXISTING WEBSITE CONTENT
Website content should be thoroughly reviewed at least once a semester. We recommend that a review be completed prior to the beginning of each semester.
Basic content updates can be sent via email to Shara Gibbons firstname.lastname@example.org. The request should include details such as the page(s) that need updates and specific updates to content (addition/deletion/change). Copying the website content into Word and using track changes to show the updates that are needed is the most effective way of communicating updates.
If you have access to edit your website via OU Campus, you are free to make the changes yourself and submit them to be published.
Employees may be granted access to directly edit website content. A training course for OU Campus (our Content Management System (CMS)) is required prior to being granted access.

Domains .com or other extensions should be purchased through the school’s domain management account, so that they are the property of the school and not an individual. Depending on the purpose of the domain, individual units may be asked to pay for the domain registration fee. Journal entries will be made as needed to cover the cost.
The school runs Google Analytics on all sites/pages within the Huntsman School. Because the analytic account is centralized and includes all analytics, the primary account will not be shared with units inside of the school.
If a unit wants access to analytics for their specific site, they can set up their own Google Analytics account and configure the site they want to track. This will generate a unique tracking ID that can be added to the appropriate site, so that they can see their analytics directly.
The Google Analytic tracking code should be sent to the School’s webmaster, Shara Gibbons, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to set up a site to track analytics on, and need help setting up Google Analytics, contact Shara for assistance.
