Benefits of Using Umbraco Cloud
Save Time with Umbraco Cloud
One major advantage of using Umbraco Cloud is how much time you can save by eliminating tedious tasks. Umbraco Cloud features automated upgrades and security fixes, ensuring your site runs smoothly. Other benefits include having the installation, infrastructure, and security of your website taken care of by Umbraco's highly-skilled and certified support team. The type and amount of help will vary depending on which support package you subscribe to.
User Management Made Easy with the Umbraco Cloud Portal
Umbraco Cloud makes user management easy with the Umbraco Cloud Portal. The Portal gives you an overview of what is happening on your site in a centralised location. From the Umbraco Cloud Portal, you can manage user permissions and preferences, manage your team, and work with external collaborators and clients with ease.
Work Flow Tools
Umbraco Cloud supports your website's content development with various tools to save you time and troubles. The intuitive built-in tool called ContentFlow aides in a smooth editing and publishing process in separate environments. Another helpful tool is the fail-safe Baselines feature which allows you to reuse elements of a project with just one click instead of starting over from scratch. Additionally, Umbraco Cloud provides tools that let you work on your project in the cloud or locally, by allowing you to clone the project to a device of your choice.
Challenges of Using Umbraco Cloud
Migrating or converting an existing website to the Umbraco Cloud may present challenges for full functionality. To take full advantage of Umbraco Cloud services, it's best to use it from the start of a new project. Although you can migrate an existing site to Umbraco Cloud, manual changes may have to be made in order for your site to fully function. Also, Umbraco Cloud does not currently support projects created on the Umbraco Headless platform.
