Transition to V3 

Currently, you may be using the Classic or Volte user interfaces and just making the transition to the latest version. 

So please note: V3 is available for all instances and all users. 

For our existing customers, we suggest the following to familiarize yourselves with the latest user interface: 

  • Start by experimenting on a page by either creating new one with your model or branching an existing asset. 
  • Validate that you can edit and publish as expected 
  • Once you confirm there are no issues, use it for the CMS tasks you now complete in Volte or Classic. 

If you any encounter issues, create a support caseOur Support staff is committed to answering any questions you may have and ensuring you have a great experience working within the platform. 

In summary, all you need is your username, password and your instance URL to access the CMS.  

Use forward slash V3 at the end to access your content through the latest UI 


Create a support case or contact customer success if you have any questions or need any help.
