UCSF

Siteimprove Tool

Beginning in 2019 and in partnership with UCSF Information Technology, the Office of Planning and Communications is piloting the use of a tool called Siteimprove for School of Pharmacy web editors that enables you to easily identify and resolve common problems with your website, such as broken links and misspelled words.

Not affiliated with the School of Pharmacy? See Siteimprove Roll-out.

This pilot program is currently for only web editors with sites on pharm.ucsf.edu. In Siteimprove you can see issues for only the content that you own. You can use it as much as you want to improve your website. Ideally you’d check Siteimprove on a regular basis at a schedule that you see fit. Below are some example screenshots. Siteimprove is funded at the UC level and administered at the campus level; you are not responsible for its cost or administration.
