Using netlify deploy button to update existing apps

I was wondering if it’s possible to use the Deploy to Netlify button to deploy an update to an existing site. Like my situation is I want a non-technical admin to be able to deploy by themselves since they can’t use git. The site will be deployed initially using the same button, I was just wondering if they can deploy an update again using same button. Thanks

@WeedleApp What would be getting updated though?

Generally speaking, if the site is connected to a git repository, your build to update the site would automatically trigger when code changes are pushed.

If you’re retrieving content during the build from a CMS via API, then you just need a means of “starting the build”, which can be done via CMS plugin (depending on the CMS) or webhook etc.

Ah I see, thank you. The admin doesn’t necessarily need a custom solution, so I guess the doing a deploy via the UI will have to do then. Thank you very much
