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.

Document Management

The OASIS web CMS includes an enterprise-level document repository system that can store, organize, and make available to visitors (by download) a wide range of files. Site administrators have access to an elegant toolset to name, select and upload one or more files (including the use of drag and drop from computer to browser). 

OASIS supports file versioning, keeping the last 3 versions of a named file for reference.  And should you want it, OASIS also includes a resource that enables "trade for access" to stored files - allowing you to place a data collection form in front of a file before a site visitor may download the file.

Links Library

The OASIS web CMS allows site administrators to easily build lists of links - either through an application of the Menu resource, or through a highly configurable resource called the List resource.  When the list resource is used, site administrators will easily be able to configure and create structured data sets with a standard set of fields which may include links to other websites.

In fact, this list of features has been set up using the OASIS List resource!

Media Gallery

The OASIS web CMS provides a variety of ways to incorporate images and video into a site.  A task-dedicated resource for this purpose, called the Media Gallery, allows you to manage a wide range of media, including video (either uploaded to your site's backend, or via embed from Vimeo or YouTube), audio and images. The tool renders content to a page in a gallery format, which can be styled to your requirements.

Multimedia content can also be managed through the commonly-used Text resource, a News resource and a List resource.

RSS News Rebroadcaster

The OASIS web CMS includes an available News Rebroadcaster, with easy-to-use site administrator controls that allow for the rebroadcasting of other RSS feeds.  Configuration capabilities include the ability to filter an RSS feed on keywords, thus providing highly customized topical newsfeeds. 

Stories aggregated using this resource only provide a story synopsis from the incoming RSS feed; visitors interested in following a story are led, by hyperlink, to the original story souce.


The OASIS web CMS provides a complete framework for the management of blogs through the News resource, which manages serialized content.  Bloggers may be provided with customized permissions to access a particular instance of the blog (to support multiple bloggers or a single blog), and have full editorial control.  The Blog framework also provides for delayed/scheduled publishing, and provides an internal approval workflow framework to support appropriate review of content. 

A threaded comment/feedback framework is available when the News resource is used to support blogs.  Feedback modes include 'without restriction', 'with adjudication', or 'turned off'.


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.
