Managing website content is simple. Controlling content quality to protect your brand can be trickier. You need the ability to define the role users play and determine the tools they can use to manage web content.

CommonSpot’s roles and permissions are so granular that many users or just one user can be given ownership rights to manage entire departmental sub-sites, pages, sections of a page, or even a single content object. And those users can in turn assign roles and permissions to their respective teams ensuring that the people who own the content--e.g., the subject-matter experts--can manage the content.

You can assign permissions granting use of specific templates, images, or documents to be used as well. There are virtually no limitations to the permissions and restrictions that you can put into place, giving you complete control over website content creation and management while ensuring that your content is well branded, current, and more compelling for site visitors.
