How to find which pages are linking to my document/image/page

  • Use the Page Info and Dependency Tag Info Gadget to identify which pages your documents, images or pages are linked from. The easiest way to do this is to use both the "Page Info" and "Dependency Tag Info" gadgets together.
  • First, browse to the file location and open your document, image or page. Then open the gadgets by clicking on the button with a plug icon at the top right of your screen. Then open the Page Info gadget and click on the Page Product code e.g. {{xxxxxxxx}}. This will automatically open the Dependency Tag Info gadget and will show you the information you're looking for. You may need to scroll down within the gadget.
  • Once you have the Dependency Tag Info gadget open, scroll down to the "Subscribers" section. This will either say "none" or show you the link to the pages that are currently linked to your document/image/page. If it says none, that means there are no links to the file you're viewing. This can be moved to the recycle bin safely without causing any broken links. If it shows you links, then you can open those pages and update the links to the new file you might be replacing (this is required if you are changing the file name).
  • Why is this useful? This is useful if you are considering removing the document/image/page from the web server. This will allow you to remove or update the links and prevent broken links/images.

Reminders

You can set Scheduled or Stale Content reminders for any page that you have the rights to edit. Reminders can send a message to yourself or your group to remind you to review the file for any needed updates. Once set, reminders can be edited in the same way. To clear a reminder from a page, open the "Reminders" box and then deselect the checkbox for that reminder.

How to Access Reminders

  1. In Content > Pages, hover over the file and select Edit > Reminders.
  2. While viewing a page, click Properties in the top toolbar and select "Reminders" from the left-hand menu.

Tip

It can be helpful to set reminders to update content that has information that changes each semester or year.


Scheduled Reminder

This is used to send a notification at a specific date and time. Helpful for when you need to remind yourself to update specific information. You can also set this reminder to repeat periodically.

  1. Check "Set Scheduled Reminder"
  2. Set a date & time for the reminder to be sent.
  3. Optional: If you would like this reminder to repeat, set the "Repeat Every" x days/weeks/months/years
  4. Choose who should get the notification
    • Choose (Myself) if you would like to be the only recipient.
    • Choose a group if you would like everyone in that group to receive the email. Groups are titled based on the folder. So, if you want to send a notification to everyone who can edit content in the "Business Office," choose folder-business-office.
  5. Optional: You can add a message to the email. It is helpful to use a message to remind yourself what needs to be done.
  6. Recommended: Check "Send Copy to Email" to get the reminder in your Valencia College email. If this isn't checked, the message will only show in your OUCampus Inbox.
