Users and Groups
The LiveWhale (LW) Content Management System (CMS) uses Single-Sign-On (SSO). This means you use the same credentials to log in to all other college systems.
Faculty members are one of two types of LiveWhale CMS users. When a faculty member uses the “Editor Login” footer link, they are taken directly into a streamlined edit mode for their profile page. They do not see, or have to deal with, the LW navigation menus. It is a simple and clear process to make edits to their profile. Faculty members do not need to be associated with a LiveWhale User or Group.
The second type of user is Content Managers (these can be faculty, staff, or students.) Content Managers need to be associated with a LiveWhale User and at least one group. A LW administrator would create the user and associate them with at least one group.
