Overview of Tridion Content

SDL Tridion is a Content Management System (CMS), a program which allowes users to organize, edit, and publish web content. CMS's are used to maintain websites and generally do not require knowledge of HTML to make most site updates. Because Tridion is web-based, you can access it through your web browser rather than opening an application on your computer like Outlook or Excel. In the following guide, you will learn how Tridion organizes pages and contents and how to navigate Tridion.

Anyone seeking access to Tridion must either watch the videos on this site or review the support pages and successfully complete two quizzes.

Additionally, no new users are granted access to Tridion until they have received the University Content Editor Accessibility Training.

Once you've completed these tasks, please contact ysm.editor@yale.eduindicating the site(s) you'll be editing so we can grant you the appropriate access.

For more information on how to use Tridion to edit your website, please visit our Web Support Site.
