Siteimprove CMS Deeplinking

What is it?

The Siteimprove Content Management (CMS) Deeplink is a direct link into your CMS' editing environment.  It has the potential to bring you directly to the corresponding page in your site that you were viewing in Siteimprove. The link makes it possible to move quickly between Siteimprove and your CMS, therefore making the process of finding and fixing errors on your website more efficient.

For sites with the CMS Deeplink enabled, a CMS Deeplinking button can be found in various locations through the Siteimprove Platform. Typically, they are found right next to the page URL or at the top of your Page Reports:
