OASIS Feature Set

OASIS is a flexible platform that can be configured to the exact needs and requirements of your website, portal or intranet.  On site build, custom functionalities or software, called resources, are assembled to meet the requirements.  Many of the most valuable resources are already available right out of the box.  And the talented team at Sandbox continue to develop new resources, and  can create something customized for your need on request.

Keep reading to learn about the many features and resources already available in the OASIS web content management system.

Secure Login

The OASIS web CMS includes a rich permission management framework that provides granular permission levels for users, such as a webmaster, administrators and users. To best leverage the framework, users can be easily assigned to groups, and groups and even individual users can have read/write/create/delete access for all or a subset of pages and even on-page resources.  It all happens through a login gate that gives you a variety of ways to register users, support users (through Forgot Password functions), and empower users.

OASIS can be integrated with your organization's Active Directory!


The OASIS web CMS includes a powerful framework for serialized content (content added over time or in sequence, such as news, media releases and blogs) called the News resource. This tool allows users and groups with correct credentials to create and schedule the posting of news - including parameters such as a title, article summary (or short abstract), full text article/story, posting date, an optional photo/image and an optional file (which can be downloaded by those reading the article). Website visitors access rich serialized content that can be published in chronological order or in association with categories/tags.

Administrators may also activate commenting abilities in this resource, enabling unrestricted or adjudicated commenting by article readers, or turn off commenting completely.

This resource is RSS-out enabled.


The OASIS web CMS includes a resource that allows credentialled site administrators to easily build forms that can collect website visitor data/input.  Set up custom fields, order them as you see fit, make some fields mandatory for form submission; all of these features are available to site administrators in the form builder.  When published, website visitors can use a created form to provide information.  Submitted data is directed, by email, to a designated address (usually, a site administrator; but this is configured per form by the site administrator). Alternatively, data can be exported from the database to an Excel-compatible format for download by the site administrator.


The OASIS web CMS provides a Survey resource that can keep your data under the same roof, negating the need to resort to external tools like SurveyMonkey in most cases.  Credentialled site administrators can access a range of survey question types (multiple choice, Yes/No, Likert scale) from an easy-to-use survey creation tool to build customized surveys.  Question re-ordering helps to ensure that you get it right for your survey respondents.  Data from surveys gets consolidated in a rich administrator dashboard that includes visualization tools (charts) and the ability to export data to Excel-compatible formats for more advanced data manipulation.

If you rely on external integration with tools like SurveyMonkey or FormStack, OASIS fully supports you with easy-to-insert code snippet abilities.

Mobile Friendly Site

The OASIS web CMS ensures that your website looks great across viewing devices, including smart phones and tablets, through full support for both responsive and adaptive design.  Support for multiple stylesheets is included!


The OASIS web CMS provides a highly functional and graphical calendar and event registration framework that gives website visitors an extraordinary calendar experience. Site administrators have a full set of controls to name and describe events and location information, select periodic or recurring events, compose event series, and turn on registration elements.  The resource includes the ability to create and apply event categories. Website visitors can access a range of views of a calendar, filter by category, drill down for detailed information, download an iCal entry, view a linked Google map (where location information is provided), and, if activated, complete a registration (including payment processing) for an event.

Event registration information can be downloaded by site administrators to Excel-compatible formats for additional manipulation.
