Create a site in Site Factory

Before creating your site it's important to already be in the group you've been assigned to use, or to a subgroup with that larger grouping, AND leave your dashboard in Grid mode; creating a site from the default dashboard risks creating the site outside of your accessible area. If this happens, contact sitefarm@ucdavis.edu to ask that the site be moved to your group.
  1. From the admin console, locate the Create a New Site button.
  2. Create new site button.
  3. Provide a single word domain name that contains no spaces:
    Insert a domain name that has no spaces in the name.
  4. Click the Create site button to continue.
  5. A site generation screen will appear. The site building process will taken five to fifteen minutes and you will be notified by email that the creation process is complete.

  6. Click Back to my Groups to continue working while the site is built in the background.
  7. If the email notification seems to take longer than fifteen minutes, make sure to check your spam or junk file in your email account. 
  8. To access your site, either click on the link provided in the email notification OR return to your site card in Site Factory and click on its Log in button so it will generate a Site Manager role assignment to you as the site creator.
