Version 11 Screen Options

The content management system switched from OU Campus version 10 to Omni CMS version 11 on April 8, 2021. The interface looks slightly different, but most of the functionality remains unchanged. Modern Campus (formerly OmniUpdate) has provided a training video to show the changes that occured with the transition to the newer version.

Key Changes

All hover-menus have been replaced with activate-to-open (a.k.a. click-to-open) menus.

  • V11 was designed for screen sizes as small as a portrait-oriented tablet
  • The ellipsis (three dots) in list views are used to display the More Actions menu
  • Menus open on activation/click rather than hover to reduce accidental opening/closing
  • Omni CMS V11 was launched onApril 8, 2021
  • The Setup menu (for administrators) has been moved to the end of the global navigation.
