It is important to use properly structured HTML headings when organizing your web content. Think of webpage headings as a table of contents for a story.
Headings are not required on webpages. However, they help break up and organize lengthy informational webpages—improving readability. Proper heading use is not only important for accessibility, it also has search engine optimization benefits, which can help your webpages rank higher in Google’s search results.
Data tables present tabular information in a grid. They are made up of columns and rows that communicate the meaning of the information. There are several options for styling your data in tables to allow for a clean, visually appealing look.

The Approval Workflow in OU Campus is an optional function that a department can use when creating or editing content that needs approval from someone else before being published. This process allows the item to remain checked out to a user throughout the process until it has been completed—either published or reverted back to the previous version. Keeping content checked out is important so that the item is not published unintentionally before it should be.
- The item goes from being checked out to the editor to being checked out by the approver and possibly back to the editor depending on what the approver selects.
- The approver can deny the changes or publish/approve them.
- The approver must have CMS access, but could have view-only access or edit access. An approver with edit access could publish the changes if approved, with view-only access the approver can only approve the content and return the item to the first person for publishing if approved.
- OU Campus will send an email notification to the approver letting them know you have sent them something. This email can include a custom message from you.
