Drupal Services Panel refresh

A reminder to all agencies that the current Drupal Services Panel arrangement will expire on 30 June 2021. All agencies should carefully consider whether any new or existing contracts need to extend beyond this date. Get in touch if you need advice.

Training Videos

In 2020 GovCMS and Salsa Digital worked closely together to develop a series of short Content Administration training videos. These videos cover everything from logging in, to taxonomies, and are a great companion to the training manuals or live training sessions available.
