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 shara.gibbons@usu.edu. 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 directly, you are free to make the changes yourself.

Faculty/staff members may be granted access to directly edit website content. Completion of training for the Content Management System (CMS) used by the Huntsman School is required prior to being granted access.

To schedule CMS training, contact the school’s webmaster, Shara Gibbons, at shara.gibbons@usu.edu.

All websites in the Huntsman School domain (huntsman.usu.edu) are a representation of the Huntsman School of Business. We would strongly prefer that all pages inside this domain adhere to the Huntsman School branding policies, including the use of the approved Huntsman School template and heading and paragraph styles (they may not be overwritten). Plug-ins supported by the Content Management System (CMS) and Qualtrics may be used. External forms, calendars, etc., are not approved for use.

Questions regarding website rules and guidelines should be directed to the School’s webmaster, Shara Gibbons at shara.gibbons@usu.edu.

FACULTY/STAFF PROFILES

Updates can be emailed to the School’s webmaster, Shara Gibbons at shara.gibbons@usu.edu.

NEW WEBSITE (COMPLETE CONTENT REFRESH)

To begin the process for a complete content and design refresh, please schedule a meeting with the Huntsman School’s Marketing Coordinator, Trisha Hunsaker, to evaluate your current website. She will work with you to create a content plan. Trisha will then coordinate with the School’s webmaster, Shara Gibbons, to evaluate your plan. Once the plan has been reviewed and approved by both Shara Gibbons and Dave Patel, additional meetings will be scheduled to begin the process of creating a new website. The process will include creating a content outline, generating copy, getting copy approved and selecting artwork. The new website will not be built until all of the necessary materials (approved final copy and artwork) are provided.

DOMAINS

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.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

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 shara.gibbons@usu.edu. If you want to set up a site to track analytics on, and need help setting up Google Analytics, contact Shara for assistance.
