Edit content within My UIndy

My UIndy is UIndy’s portal—a single online environment to deliver information and services to students, faculty, and staff.

If you need to edit content in My UIndy but haven't ever done so, please let us know by completing an IT Help Desk Ticket. After access has been granted, you will be able to edit My UIndy content with the web editor tool Divi. For instructions on how to navigate through Divi, please see below.

First, determine if the content you want to edit is stored in Google Drive or My UIndy.

Some My UIndy content is stored in Google Drive and other content is stored directly in My UIndy pages. If you do not know whether your content is directly in My UIndy or in Drive, use the following information to determine that.

My UIndy Content

My UIndy pages you are able to edit through the Divi content management system will have a web address starting with my.uindy.edu (e.g. my.uindy.edu/registrar).

Google Drive Content

Google Drive pages will have a web address starting with drive.google.com.

Second, select the editing tool for your content type

Select the correct editing tool for the type of content you have: My UIndy page content or Google Drive content.

My UIndy Text Style Notes

When editing links and text within My UIndy, please follow these guidelines:

  • Do not type text in all caps nor use tools in the editor to change text color. Web page styles are set up to capitalize text and apply color to links where intended. While it may not show as all caps or in color in your editing window, it will show appropriately in the page view.
  • Generally, choose for links to open within the same window instead of a new window.
  • Use an ampersand (&) within page and section titles instead of the word "and". For example, Health & Safety instead of Health and Safety.

Enable page editing

  1. Login to My UIndy, then navigate to the My UIndy content editor URL you were given by UIndyIT. Click the Login with Google button.
  2. Click Pages along the left side of the page.
  3. Click the Edit button under the page title you would like to edit.

  1. Click the Build On The Front End button directly above the purple "The Divi Builder" bar.

  2. In the resulting Accordion Settings window, click the gray gear icon to the left of the accordion section you want to edit.

Edit My UIndy Content Stored in Google Drive

There are two ways to update My UIndy content stored in Google Drive:

  • Google-native documents, like Google Sheets and Google Docs, can be edited directly within Google Drive and those updates will be shown immediately within My UIndy.
  • PDFs, Word Docs (.docx), and other non-Google-native formats will need to be updated via Manage Versions to maintain their link to My UIndy. See Update with Manage Versions for instructions.
