CMS: Overview

Much of the content that displays on the TouchTour is managed by a custom Content Management System (CMS.) This system allows users to control the content displayed in the TouchTour software.

Once logged in a user is directed to the main dashboard of the CMS. From here a user is able to access all sections of the CMS including Availability, Galleries, Floor plans, and Amenities. Some CMS’ have added capabilities to add/edit Events, Social Media feeds, and Transit info.
CMS Overview
Overview

CMS: Availability

The data in this section is unit availability data as dictated by the availability feed.

This section lists the unit number, floor plan type, square footage, availability data and price for all units that have data associated with them in the availability feed.

There are two fields in this section where a user can over-ride the data coming through in the availability feed:

  • Make Unavailable
    • Checking this box will manually over-ride the availability data to change the unit status to unavailable. If this box is checked the unit will not display on the TouchTour.
  • Modified Price
    • Entering an alternate price in this field will over-ride the price for the unit in the data feed. The modified price is the price that will display for this unit on the touch panel.

    Note: If these fields are utilized they will not be over-ridden when the availability feed updates. Therefore, these changes will need to be manually updated if no longer applicable.

    Overview

    CMS: Locations

    In this section a user may edit, add and delete the locations data. This is the data that displays in the Locations, sometimes titled Neighborhood, section of the software.

    To edit a point of interest (POI) a user would click the POI name. The user is then directed to a new page that lists the information associated with that POI. A user may edit this information and click “save” to save any changes.

    To add a POI a user would click the “add new location” button located to the top right of the locations list. The user is then directed to a blank POI page.

    Information that should be populated for each POI:

    • Name
    • Category
      • This is the category the POI will appear within in the “Locations” section of the software.
    • Street Address, City, State and Zip Code
      • If any of this information is missing the POI will not appear on the map.
      • Phone Number, Fax Number and Website URL.

    Once this information is populated a user will click “save” to save this POI. Once a new POI is saved, it will appear in the list of locations.

    To delete a POI a user would simply click “delete” on the line of the POI they would like to delete.

    CMS: Galleries

    In this section a user is able to add, edit and delete gallery photos.

    To edit the photos within a gallery a user may click “Add/Edit” to the right of the gallery they would like to manage content for.

    The user will be directed to view where all the images within the selected gallery are displayed. The order in which the images appear in this view is the order they appear on the TouchTour.

    A user is able to change the photo order by simply clicking on an image and dragging it to the position they would like it to appear.

    To delete an image a user would simply click “delete” on the line of the image they would like to delete.

    Gallery

    CMS: Galleries

    To add a photo to a gallery a user would click “select files.” They will then navigate to the location of the image they would like to add and select the file.

    The file name will then display in the “file list” field. A user may add multiple images from various locations on their computer.

    Once all the images a user would like to add have been populated in the “file list” field a user will click “Start Upload.”

    Gallery

    CMS: Galleries

    Once all images have uploaded the user will see a message appear at the top of the gallery that states “Upload Complete.”

    The newly added images will appear as the last images in the gallery. A user can drag these images to the position of their choosing.

    Photo requirements:

    • All photos uploaded to the gallery section should be saved for web .jpg files.
    • File size should not exceed 500kb.
    • Images should be sized at 900 pixels max (width or height.)
    • Photo file names should not contain special characters (!@#$%^&*, etc.) as this may cause issue with the image up-loader.
    • If you need assistance sizing images please contact support-engrain.com
