Cascade Server's Interface

1. Asset tree

The term asset tree refers to the file structure that is visible on the left-hand size of the Cascade interface. All assets within Cascade can be accessed here. The asset tree works like the folders on your desktop. Clicking on a folder will open it, revealing the assets or subfolders inside. 

If the asset is a folder, you will see its contents in the main viewing area. If the asset is a page, then you can navigate to other pages by clicking the various links just as you would on the live site. You can open assets by selecting them in the asset tree or in the main view area.

2. Main Viewing Area

Everything to the right of the asset tree is the main viewing area. This is where assets are viewed, created, and edited.

NOTE: When editing/creating an asset in the main viewing area, it must be saved (submitted) prior to navigating away from the page. If you try to click on the asset tree or move away from the page without saving, you will receive a message confirming that you want to leave the page without submitting your revisions.

3. Global Navigation

The blue navigation bar that runs along the top of your screen is the global navigation bar. This is where you create new pages and folders, view the publishing cue and messages, upload single or zipped files, return to the dashboard (lower screen shot) and use the search feature.

4. Action Bar

This action bar is a series of tabs that appear when an asset is selected. These tabs allow you to View, Edit, Move/Rename, Copy and Publish assets. The More tab features an additional menu that allows you to delete entire assets and view and reinstate previous saved versions of the asset. There are secondary features of these tabs we refer to as Panes. You should not need to edit any of the content found within the panes.
