T4 Support and Guides
What is Terminal Four (T4)?
Terminal Four is the web content management tool used by UMB to update all its websites, including the UM School of Medicine's site.
In simplest terms, T4 is a website used to manage other websites.
It is web-based, so you can access it anywhere provided you have been granted access and have an internet connection. You can use T4 to create, edit and delete web pages.
To request access to T4, inquire about training, or request support, please contact Andy Goldberg.
To become a website editor, you must complete a two-hour online class held virtually on Microsoft Teams. The training thoroughly covers all basic T4 concepts, including site structure, adding and managing content, working with images and other media, and more.

The UM SOM shares the same calendar as all UMB schools, The Elm. Adding an event to the T4 calendar is a great way to promote the event, as it will be shared throughout UMB.
Submit an Event
The Web Development team use a web-based tool called “Wufoo” to create online forms that capture information. Some examples are registration forms, customer service, feedback questionnaires and surveys. The information entered into the form is stored in a database that can be viewed anywhere. Data can also be exported into Excel.
