Contensis CMS

Contensis is a Content Management System (CMS). All of the content within the University of Nottingham website is created and managed using Contensis. 

Before you can use Contensis you must attend the CMS training course.

Frequently asked questions

The University Brand Guidelines state that "Unless a specific exemption, based on a strong business case, is agreed directly with the Chief Communications Officer in External Relations, the University logo is the only logo that should appear on University materials." If you wish to discuss this further please contact Nathalie Mortimer in External Relations.
There are details for one-day CMS Training courses on the website, as well as the dates that these days take place on. For details on additional training, please email the Web team.

This could be one of two reasons:

You don't have access to Contensis yet

Please log a support request requesting to be added to the UI-Contensis-Users Active Directory (AD) Group and we'll get this sorted for you. 

It takes up to 24 hours from being added to the AD group to being granted CMS permissions. 

You're logged in on multiple machines

Another reason may be that you are logged into Contensis on another machine. If you think this is the case then please inform the IT Helpline who can then check this for you.
