Drupal is a highly flexible and scalable content management system (CMS) that can easily be customized to meet the unique needs of governments, businesses, organizations and crown corporations. Within Drupal’s backend, staff can schedule the following: 

  • Content types (press releases, documents, pages, etc.), to be automatically published or unpublished by setting specific publish and expiry dates.
  • Emergency alerts, to have pre-scheduling and expiry dates and times set. It is important that emergency messages are both published and unpublished in an up-to-date manner for citizens to get accurate information.
  • Notifications, to be sent to users through emails and customized Drupal applications. 

By scheduling content, you can ensure irrelevant or out-of-date content will not be forgotten. View some of our recent projects to learn more about Drupal's capabilities.

Content Governance 

Managing content is a common topic among our clients since it can have a huge impact on the user’s experience. These scheduling abilities will ensure that content governance standards are maintained and only useful, high-quality content remains on the site.

Drupal also has the ability for content publishers to review stale pages and make the necessary updates so the content remains fresh and up-to-date. For example, we can create views that allow content authors to quickly and easily see which pages need to be reviewed, then receive reminder notifications. The notifications for reviewing, publishing or unpublishing content can be configured to reflect any internal content governance models and standards that your organization has in place, or Upanup can assist and provide guidance to develop new content governance standards and workflows.
With this easy-to-manage CMS, site updates will be intuitive and straightforward regardless of staff’s technical expertise. We have applied years of insights gained from working with local governments, energy sector organizations and manufacturing businesses to customize the CMS so staff can easily add, change, delete, and schedule website content—from any device.
