News, events, announcements, and links

Articles sit beneath the News and events listing page in the Information Architecture of your Squiz Workplace.

  • News - an article whose purpose is to provide news about a particular topic to other Workplace users. An item of news is synonymous with articles on a news website, or articles in a newspaper or magazine, etc. A news item consists of:

    • a Title,

    • a Contact person’s details,

    • an Article Summary and Body, as well as

    • various other selectable categories of information that can be added to the news item.

  • Event - an article whose purpose is to advertise information about a particular event to other Workplace users. An event item consists of:

    • Start and End Dates,

    • a Location,

    • an Article Title,

    • a Contact person’s details,

    • an Article Summary and Body, as well as

    • various other selectable categories of information that can be added to the event item.

  • Announcement - an article whose purpose is to distribute important information about a particular subject to other Workplace users. Unlike a news item, relevancy of an announcement item is typically shorter than that of a news item. Like a news item, announcement item consists of:

    • a Title,

    • a Contact person’s details,

    • an Article Summary and Body, as well as

    • various other selectable categories of information that can be added to the news item.

  • Alert - an article whose purpose is similar to that of an announcement, but typically conveys more importance and/or urgency. Alert items have the same definable fields as those for announcements and news items.

  • Link - a link 'article' is essentially an link/URL whose importance makes it worthwhile presenting the link as a news item. A link news item is accessible like other types of news items - visible on the home page after logging in.

The following instructions are designed to assist content authors to create, customise, edit, and eventually delete* news, event, announcement and link articles.
