The My Departments page is only available to Today at Elon department administrators. To request this capability, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today at Elon offers registered users that have been designated as department administrators to ability to manage articles that have been submitted to their department feeds.
The pending articles section allows department administrators to approve department-only articles. Department-only articles are articles that only have a department selected, and no Today at Elon categories. These are typically articles that are meant to only display on a department website news feed, and not within the main Today at Elon website.
To review and approve a department-only article, click on the article title in the pending articles list and you’ll be directed to the edit screen where you can edit and publish the article.
As a department administrator, you also have the ability to manage articles that have already been published. Similar to the My Articles page, simply hover over any of the articles in the published list to display the “View” and “Edit” options.
Reordering Articles in Department Feeds
Department administrators have the ability to modify the order articles will display in their department website news feeds. To reorder your department articles, simply click and hold on the sort icons on the left side of the list, then drag your articles in the desired order.
