Office Hours Block

A content block containing office hours should already be created for your unit. It is set to display on all of your unit’s pages.

This Office Hours content block is actually a Smart Form, but it can be edited or created similarly to any other content block. Note that Office Hours will usually automatically appear on all site pages. If there are problems with them appearing, contact the Web Team.

Editing Office Hours

You can edit office hours using either the browser or the CMS Workarea.

Using the browser, simply right click on the Office Hours block, and go to Edit. You will see a form with the fields filled in. Edit the information as necessary and submit the content block for approval, as you would any other content block.

Using the Workarea, navigate to the Office Hours content block and open it for editing. You will see a form with the fields filled in. Edit the information as necessary, and submit it as you would any other content block.

Note: The way times are listed follows university style, and that style should not be altered. Example: 1:00 p.m., rather than 1 p.m. or 1 PM.

Creating Office Hours

An Office Hours content block should already be created for you. But if, for any reason, you need to create an Office Hours content block, follow this process:

  1. In the CMS Workarea, navigate to the folder where you want to create the content block.
  2. Mouse over New on the toolbar to the right and scroll down to Smart Form.
  3. Go to Office Hours. You will see that the Smart Form is already completed with standard university hours.
  4. Edit as necessary.
  5. Enter a title for the content block in the Title field.
  6. Submit for approval, as you would any other content block.

Making Office Hours Display on Your Page

The Office Hours content block should automatically display on your page. If, for any reason, it does not, follow this process:

  1. Using the browser, navigate to the main content block for the page where you want office hours to display. Right-click on that content block and go to Edit. (If working in the CMS Workarea, navigate to the main content block for that page and open it for editing.)
  2. Click on the Metadata tab.
  3. Go to Office Hours block. If no block is displayed, select Edit. The Library Folder screen will come up.
  4. On the left side, navigate to the folder where the Office Hours block is located. When the block appears on the right side, double-click on it. You will see the content block appear at the bottom of the screen with a checked box next to it. Click on the Save button. The content block will be added into the metadata. Because you are changing the metadata for this content block, you will need to submit (or resubmit) it for publishing. After it is approved for publishing, the Office Hours block will appear on the page.

Note: To keep the Office Hours content block from displaying, simply go to the Metadata tab, go to the Office Hours block, and click on Clear. It should no longer display on the page.

Keeping Office Hours from Displaying on Your Page

As you can make the office hours appear on your page using the metadata, you can also remove them from your page using the metadata.

  1. To stop office hours from displaying on your page, navigate (using the browser or the Workarea) to the main content block for the page where the Office Hours block displays.
  2. Open up the main content block for editing.
  3. Click on the Metadata tab and go to the Office Hours block.
  4. Click on Clear, and the office hours will be removed from the metadata. (If you wish to change the Office Hours block that appears, click on Edit, and follow steps three and four above, under “Making Office Hours Display on Your Page.”)
  5. Click on the Submit button to send the content item through workflow.
