Resources and Information about UW's Transition to Omni CMS




As part of UW's website improvement strategy, we will be transitioning users and pages to Omni CMS by Modern Campus. We are well underway with this conversion and site editors need to be observing our Double System Edit phase. While a "go-live" date has not been selected yet, we will provide in-depth communication to site editors and the university at large for important milestones and other important communication.



March 2023 Updates



Begin Your Content Prep Today!

Site authors will have been on February 27 and May 19, 2023, to complete their page review and content prep inside Omni CMS. You must complete your training to begin content prep. We have prepared a detailed checklist for site authors to follow and encourage you to check our Known Issues & Fixes page as information is being updated frequently.



Please Note: The above links will only work through WyoSecure VPN if you are not connected to the UW campus network.

What happens if a site author hasn't completed training?

You can still train inside Omni, however, you will not be able to begin your content prep until you have fully finished all three courses inside Omni training and this will shorten your content prep window. Please make all efforts to ensure you are prioritizing your Omni training and content prep as we will not be extending the content prep phase.

What to Expect

people iconPreparing for the Migration

This website serves as a central location for site authors and website stakeholders to find information about the latest updates and milestones for this migration. Site authors will be required to engage in the process by cleaning up their Cascade CMS site by removing old pages and files. Site authors will also be responsible for reviewing all their content in the CMS site prior to "go-live" to ensure their pages' content is displaying correctly. All site authors will be fully trained before they begin reviewing their sites.

building iconA Large Campus-Wide Effort

Website migrations are a major undertaking for any organization. Due to the scale of the UW website, this migration is a campus-wide collaboration with Institutional Marketing, IT, the Application Security Office, individual site authors and various other entities. Should you have any questions or need additional resources, we encourage you to reach out and we'll be in touch with you as soon as possible!

computer iconAn Improved Experience

Transitions to a new system can be stressful, especially for our valued site authors who work hard to maintain their websites. While any migration of this scale will require new knowledge, we are confident that Omni CMS will provide users with a better experience, including easier editing capabilities without complex "blocky" editing features, future design enhancements ad the ability to create page approval workflows, spell check, accessibility checks and much more.
