Owners and managers of UB websites that are hosted in UBCMS can review identified issues with the system and report new issues for remediation.
Report issues that are reported by Siteimprove by the issue number and the scan date as well as the published page on which the issue occurs. You do not need to report all occurrences of the issue. This includes issues with centrally-authored, shared content.
Report any issues identified through functional testing, such as tab order.
If you are having issues with shared content coming from another site, and know which unit authors the content, please reach out to that unit and report the issue.
If you are having issues with shared content and don't know to whom it belongs OR it belongs to University Communications, let us know by submitting a report.
