All content posted on PHSA websites is posted by authors and editors who are trained and have editing rights to their respective websites.
PHSA websites follow a distributed authorship model, which means that the staff who know the content are responsible for creating and maintaining it on their site.
Staff are supported by Communications and IMITS Web Solutions.
Below are the roles and duties in our distributed authorship model. (Not all program areas have the author role.)
- Editor – staff person who performs the same duties as an author but is able to publish their changes directly to the live site.
Content Owner – staff person who is ultimately responsible for the accuracy and timeliness of the content within their section(s) of the website. Usually this is a supervisor or program or department head or manager.
- Author – staff person who posts, creates and edits content within assigned channels on the website, using the SharePoint platform. They must submit work to an editor for approval in order for it to be published on the live website.
Designated PHSA and program communications staff are responsible for approving, creating, editing and removing channels (pages that have child pages under them) on the site as needed.
Content owners can submit requests for creating, editing or removing channels. See the
