Getting started with Typecase

How to start using our publishing platform, Typecase, to create and edit content on the University website.

Before using Typecase

Before you add a page or some new content to, think about whether the website is the best place for your content. For example, if you're trying to raise awareness about something or reach a particular group of people, it might be more effective to use social media or email.

If you don't already have access to Typecase, you must request training and complete two test exercises before you can use it.

If you only need access to update or create a few web pages as a one-off or rare occurrence, you should check if anyone in your team or department already has access and can help you instead. You can also contact and ask the Content team to add or update content for you.

Log in to Typecase

Find and edit existing content

When you log in to Typecase, you see a list of all the content items owned by your primary organisation. This is usually the department or team you work in at the University.

You'll also see content items:

  • owned by groups belonging to your primary organisation¬†
  • associated with your primary organisation
  • associated with groups belonging to your primary organisation

Find a content item

To find an existing content item, you can:

  • use the search bar to look for a specific page title

Use the search bar

Click on the page title when it appears beneath the search bar to open the edit screen.

Filter the content list

You can filter the list of content items by:

  • owning organisation or group
  • content type and subtype (the template used to make the content item)
  • status (whether the content item is published, in draft, or scheduled)

To filter the list:

  1. Use the drop-down menus to select an owning organisation or group, content type, or status - you can choose from any or all of the menus.
  2. Click 'Apply filters' to see the results.
  3. Click on the content item in the list to open the edit screen.

You'll see a list of all the content types and a brief explanation of the type of content you should use each one for.
