  29. 29. Remote HTML Reference <ul><li>http:// web server + / webview URL/ + component filename.xhtml </li></ul> /rj/sbox/ Library_Services_Student_Section_Component.xhtml
  30. 30. LTCC Advantages <ul><li>LTCC’s can be divided into sections </li></ul><ul><li>LTCC sections can: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>be targeted to users with different roles . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>contain one or more Luminis CMS components . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Each Luminis CMS Component can: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>be maintained by a different set of users (thus providing extreme flexibility/granularity of authorship). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>utilize automated workflow for review and approval, as needed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>reduce duplication of creation effort (Re-usable Content) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>increase accuracy – Create once (WYSIWYG editor), use in multiple publishing configurations (Internet, Intranet, Portal, etc.) </li></ul></ul>
  31. 31. LTCC Disadvantages <ul><li>Require Portal Content Administrator to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create LTCC’s with Remote HTML Reference Subsections </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coordinate with Luminis CMS users who </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>create and maintain each Luminis CMS component </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>provide the URL needed for the Remote HTML Reference subsections </li></ul></ul></ul>
  32. 32. LTCC Recommended Uses <ul><li>Use LTCCs when: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>content needs to go through an approval process (automated workflow). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>you have different content contributors or content managers for a single channel AND you don’t want them to be able to touch each other’s content. </li></ul></ul>

  34. 34. Luminis Platform/Luminis CMS Touch Points ALCC
  35. 35. ALCC: A day in the life of… <ul><li>Human Resources has just launched an Open Enrollment program for selecting the benefits options offered to employees for the next year. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HR needs to create a new channel for employees providing information on the new program </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The HR content owner logs into the Luminis CMS, creates a new channel, and adds content using the WYSIWYG editor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The channel passes through workflow and is automatically published to the portal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HR has coordinated with the layout owner of the portal employee tab to have the channel added to the layout once it is published </li></ul></ul>
  36. 36. ALCC: A Day in the Life of: Hector HR Specialist Logs on to LCMS Navigates to his Workgroup Selects the Portal Webview Creates a new Document and Layout Adds the needed content Selects the Groups & Categories Saves and submits to workflow Layout owner finds new channel… … and adds it to layout Specifies Name
  37. 37. ALCC: A Day in the Life of: Before After
  38. 38. ALCC – 1. Create New Document
  39. 39. ALCC – 2. Select Page Layout
  40. 40. ALCC – 3. Select Groups and Categories X X
  41. 41. ALCC – 4. Add Content to Component and Save
  42. 42. ALCC Advantages <ul><li>ALCC’s are created and managed within Luminis CMS using WYSIWYG Editor </li></ul><ul><li>ALCC’s don’t require Luminis Platform Content Administrator intervention. </li></ul><ul><li>ALCC may use automated workflows for approval processes, as needed. </li></ul><ul><li>ALCC are automatically published to the Luminis Portal </li></ul><ul><li>Re-usable CMS content (components) may be used in ALCCs </li></ul>
  43. 43. ALCC Disadvantages <ul><li>ALCCs can only be targeted to a single role or group of roles on the Luminis Platform </li></ul><ul><li>ALCCs can’t be divided into sections and targeted to different user roles </li></ul><ul><li>Groups and categories for ALCCs can’t be edited or changed within the LCMS. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Groups and Categories can be set initially in LCMS during Channel creation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Groups and Categories can only be changed by Luminis Platform Content Administrator. </li></ul></ul>
  44. 44. ALCC Recommended Uses <ul><li>Use ALCCs: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When the entire channel is targeted to a single role or group or roles. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When all content needs to go through an approval process (automated workflow). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When you have common content contributors or content managers for a single channel AND/OR it does not matter if they are able to touch each other’s content. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For channels that will continue to exist in some form (even if the content changes over time). Content expiration only affects the LCMS—the published channel remains live in the portal. Luminis Platform Content Administrator would have to remove channel when/if it’s no longer needed. </li></ul></ul>
  45. 45. ALCC vs. LTCC <ul><li>The channel doesn’t have to be set up on the portal side. An automated LCMS job publishes it to the portal once the channel has passed through workflow. </li></ul><ul><li>LCMS users can determine when they want to create a new channel. </li></ul><ul><li>Channels within the same workgroup can map to different workflows (manager approval or immediate launch) based on the layout selected. </li></ul><ul><li>Content within a single channel cannot be targeted to different roles. </li></ul><ul><li>An LTCC must be built on the portal side with a remote HTML reference that points to the component on LCMS. Some manual coordination will be required. </li></ul><ul><li>An LCMS user will need to coordinate with a portal content administrator to ensure that the channel is set up and inform them of the URL for the component. </li></ul><ul><li>All components within a workgroup must map to a single workflow. </li></ul><ul><li>Content sections allowing for targeted delivery can be built within a single channel. </li></ul>
