1 - What is a page

Pages or sites, as they are also called, are separate customisable landing pages in the intranet. They can be used for different departments or for other important areas of the site such as 'Learning' or 'Projects' enabling the relevant information to be organised in each.

 

2- Assigning permissions 

There are three tiers of approval for pages.

The first tier, is: 

- Ability to create and manage all sites and assign permissions for others to do so

Usually this only contains a select few users to ensure pages are succinct and necissary and site creation doesn't get out of hand. 

Navigate to Applications > Admin > System > Administrators > Select the 'Pages' application here:

Anyone with their name in this box with have the highest level 'Pages' permissions: 

 

Now that the user has these permissions, they can access the below page and grant site creation permissions to other users:

Navigate to Applications > Admin > Pages > Permissions to grant permission on who can create and delete sites in your company.

 

Typically Content Managers or only selected members management should have this permission allowing them to setup a sites for their departments.

The second tier is: 

- Ability manage/edit specific sites and assign viewing permissions

These permissions are set per page - as its likely different users will be in charge of different pages on the site.

To assign these permissions navigate to Applications > Admin > Pages > Select the following 

 

The third and final tier is:

- Ability to view the site 

These permissions can be granted by navigating to Applications > Pages > Select the little cog here: 

 

You can add groups and roles in here and individually determine if they should just be able to edit or add to the page. 

3- Creating a page

Navigate to Applications > Pages and select '+ Create New Site'

You will then have the choice to start from an existing site that you’ve already made. This is useful if you would like all department pages to have a similar template.

To build from scratch you'll need to enter the following information:

Site title - The name that will appear in the pages application

Address - How the URL will look

Homepage title - The title that will appear at the top of the page

Permissions - Add here the groups or individuals you would like to be able to view/edit or manage the site.

Cover - the image that shows in the pages application thumbnail of the page

Hit create site.

 

Next you will be taken to the new pages admin section. Here you can

Add a new subpage

Link an existing page

 

Once additional pages have been made or linked you can determine if they should be in the navigation bar and in what order. For example:

Front end view:

Back end view:

If you now navigate to 'View site' of the site you were just creating, you will be taken to the blank canvas that is this new page. Click on the pencil in the bottom left of the page to begin adding in the components you would like to be displayed on this new page.
