Getting Started

Navigating the User Interface (UI)

Once you have successfully logged in to Adobe® Experience Manager, you will be taken to the welcome screen. There you will have access to the three parts of the application used by authors. 

Website Content Management (WCM) – The structure of your website can be expanded and actions taken on the required pages. Add, edit and delete pages as well as modify page properties and activate or deactivate pages. Pages may be subject to workflows.

Digital Asset Manager (DAM) – Add, edit or delete assets, including images, office documents like Word, Excel, etc., PDFs and any other file that "content" will be comprised of.

Security (user accounts) - Change password and personal information. Note: usernames cannot be changed once created by admins.

Main Toolbar

Once in the application, the same three sections can be accessed via the main toolbar. 

Page Structure

In the WCM, the left panel is used to show a list of pages. Pages that have sub-pages, or "child" pages, have a "plus" symbol next to them. Clicking on the plus symbol opens the tree to show its sub-pages. In this view, pages can be dragged and dropped to change the order. 

To view sub-pages in a list format, click on the parent page in the left pane and its contents will be shown in the right pane. In this view, you will have access to view or update the following page functions.

  • Page properties
  • Activation and deactivation
  • Move, copy and delete
  • View and update name and title
  • View template name
