General

Multiple Sites per User and Users per Site

A single user can author multiple sites and a single site can have multiple authors. If a teacher wants to have one site for their club and one for their classroom, they just have to log in once to update both.

Password Protection

Place simple password protection of a document on your page, a page itself, or your entire site. If you want a specific page to just be accessible by parents, password protect it and then distribute that password to your parents.

Safe Deleting

Don't worry about accidentally deleting your page or even your entire site. If you accidentally delete a page, you have thirty days to restore the page from the Page Trash. If you accidentally delete your site, your SWIFT account administrator can quickly restore it.

Simple Page Management

Pages can be added, deleted, rearranged, and published/unpublished right from the sidebar of SWIFT's management console. Users can add multiple pages of a specific page type.

Table Filtering and Item Pinning

Documents, links, quizzes, and discussion thread topics are all listed in a filterable table. You can pin items to the top of the table for quick access.

Unpublish Sites and Pages

If site authors want to unpublish their site or just a page on their site while they update content, they can do so with the Publish or Unpublish button while editing the site or page.

Visitor Tracking

Track how many visitors and pageviews your SWIFT site receives, right from within SWIFT's management console.
