Cascade Server and UploadFile System
Cascade Server has been upgraded from Cascade Server 7 to Cascade Server 8.6.1. Please sign up for a Cascade Training Refresher Session to go over the new CMS.
Texas A&M University-San Antonio currently use two systems to maintain their website. A&M-SA currently use Cascade Server (CMS) and UploadFile System. Cascade Server is the content management system used to make content edits to your pages and the UploadFile System is used to upload any documents and images you would like to use on your page.
If you have access to make edits to your pages please use the following links below to log into the system.
If you need assistance with Cascade, please contact Fernando Estrada at Fernando.Estrada@tamusa.edu.
How To Documents
The Cascade Server content management system workflow is broken down into three roles:
Web Content User – In short, the Web Content Users are responsible for creating and editing pages and content within their departments, as well as uploading documents to the UploadFile System. The Web Content Users are the primary source of web development within their departments.
Web Content Approver – The Web Content Approvers are the “second set of eyes” and function as a proofreader for pages/content/documents. The Web Content Approvers can request Web Content Users to make updates to their department pages as well.
Publisher – The publisher for the University is Administrator of Cascade Server; Fernando Estrada. In the final step of the workflow process the publisher will give the pages a final glance to make sure layout of content follows the University Brand Guide before pushing the pages to the web server and making them LIVE and accessible to the public.
