"Information Sharing Portal" Manual

This document is by no means complete. These guiding notes are meant to assist remembering the steps an Information Manager has to complete to set up, administrate and maintain the portal. This wiki can be used as a baseline to create user guidelines and Standard Operation Procedures for clearing and posting content.

The portal is still in its development stage, so some of the steps described here, might be outdated in a few months time. It is recommended to complement and update this guide on regular basis to assist newly deployed Information Managers with the Set Up and the Maintenance of the Portal.

The Information Sharing Portal is build around:

A front office that gives access to 7 distinct dashboards

  1. Regional Dashboard
  2. Country Dashboard
  3. Region Dashboard
  4. Settlement Dashboard
  5. Partner list Dashboard
  6. Partner profile Dashboard
  7. Context Map Dashboard

An administrative panel where portal administrator can enter data and configures the settings. It is accessible only to authenticated users.


0. First steps to set up a new instance (short guide)

0.1. Initial customizations

All modifications can be done in Admin panel/Dashboard settings, Admin panel/Data navigation matrix and Admin panel/Customize language text. As a first step, the e-mail address in Dashboard Settings/Footer should be updated.
Things to consider:

0.1.1 Texts


Almost every title/text you can see on the portal (even the main title) can be customized under Admin panel/Customize language text. You can search for the current text and/or the level. Please note: almost all of texts have a version on each level (regional/country/region/settlement)!

0.1.2 The layout

Layout configuration button are visible in each public pages.

The button appears when you are logged in with sufficient admin privileges.

You have to decide which modules would you like to use on which level (a list can be found at Admin panel/Modules library) and in what position. Some modules are ’stand-alone’ (e.g. Vulnerability), some have alternatives (e.g. News and RSS Feed). You can define the order of the modules for every level, but for example if one of the countries has to have a different layout, it can be done by choosing to create a ’Custom layout’ only for that location.

0.2. Adding locations


0.3. Adding the population figures


Normally the population figures are added at the level of settlement and then automatically aggregated by the portal to the region, country and then the regional level. In certain cases, when the frequent update of numbers on the settlement level is problematic, a special kind of settlement can be created (named after the region or the country, depending on the information available) and populated with the figure of a higher level. However, this should only be a solution for a shorter period of time.

0.4. Adding partners


Every partner entry consists of at least two distinct records: a record for the main organization and at least one record for a branch (see How to add partners). It is possible that the main organizations are already populated in your instance to some extent. First you should check your existing records at Admin panel/Partners. There must be at least one branch to every main organization to be available in the 3W menus.

0.5. Adding 3W activity


Populating the 3W Activity grid is very important to make our partners visible on the portal. Even if you currently don’t have figures for the settlements, you should add the partner activity details.

0.6. Adding documents


You can upload updates, maps, statistics, reports&assessments an funding documents. The documents can be tagged by language, sector, type an organizations and location, which are used on the ’View All Documents’ page as filters.

0.7. Additional information


1. Entering Data


1.1. Location & Populations

1.1.1 Define the country to be used


Add the required country:

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Select “ Location Settings”
  3. Select “Portal Countries”
  4. Click on “Add New Country”
  5. Select the name of the country you would like to add.
  6. Click Add

Select the following options

If set to 'ON', this country will appear on the main regional page. It will be listed as a circle showing refugee population, and the figures will be included in the total refugee population and demography. If this is set to 'OFF' the refugee population of this country will not be included in the total figures or the demography table.

If set to 'ON', this country will appear in the top navigation bar. It will be possible to click on this bar to proceed to the detailed country page.

If set to 'ON', this country will appear in the drop down for country of origin

1.1.2 Define the operational region and link it with a known region

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Select “ Location Settings”
  3. Select “Region”
  4. Click on “Create New Region”
  5. Type in the name of the region you would like to add
  6. Select the country
  7. If you know the ‘administrative level’ of the region, you can search for additional geographic location information for this region. This is optional
  8. Add the regions centroid by dragging the marker on the map or putting in the latitude and longitude directly
  9. Decide if this region should be published or not
  10. Click Add

1.1.3 Define & describe a settlement


A settlement can be of different type:

1.1.4 Add population number


  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Select “ Refugee Population Data”
  3. If the Location and Origin record does not yet exist click “Create New Settlement Record”.
  4. Fill in the relevant data in the appropriate fields. Note that the Update date defaults to Todays Date. Make sure that the date is the date for which the data was reported
  5. When you are done, click “Save”
  6. Check that the data appears correctly on the website.
    Note: if there is no households number at all in the records, ‘N/A’ will appear in the modules. To avoid this, displaying of household figures can be switched of for each level individually in “Admin panel/Dashboard settings”.
  7. If you would like to display a time graph of the population figures, you have to create a “history” for each location you’d like to see as a timegraph.
    To do this, you can either click on the “Create New Settlement Record” from the main population grid, or you can click on the “Edit” button in the relevant record of the grid. Editing an existing record from the main grid will create a new record with the same Location and Country Origin data, but with different dates and population figures. The population record with the latest date will show as the current population figure on the portal. Records with any dates prior to the most recent date will appear in the population history chart.

Note: you have to switch on the master switch for the timegraphs in the “Dashboard settings”, on the “Global settings” tab.

  1. If you want to correct or change a historical record for a particular Location and country of origin, click on the “History” button next to the record you want to update, and then click the “Edit” icon of the record you wish to change. Editing a record in the “History grid” will overwrite the existing data. Editing a record from the main population grid will update the figures, creating a new record in the history grid.

Note: You can export the whole table to an Excel sheet with the “Export” button at the bottom of the grid. If you’ve previously filtered the table, the result will be exported. A feature to import the data from excel back into the portal is current under development.

Different type of settlement can be used

1.2. Partners, Activities and Working Groups

1.2.1 Partner profile and contact information data


This covers logos, phone numbers, address information:

You can add Partners with whom you work. The partners are also used for the Who does what where information. All partners will appear in the Partner list. Partners for whom specific activities in specific locations have been recorded will also be displayed in the Region and Camp pages.
Regarding partner information, there are 2 definitions you should be familiar with: main organization and branch. Essentially every partner you create should consist of two parts: a main organization and at least one branch. For example: if you have Red Cross Belgium and the American Red Cross working in your country, your main organization could be Red Cross, with two branches: RC Belgium and ARC.
The other case would be when your partner is working in more than one country in a regional emergency, and they would like to have separate pages and access. In that case, the main organization (e.g. ACTED) will have two branches for the two countries (ACTED-I for Iraq, ACTED-L for Lebanon).
The last case is when you have one partner working in one country. For programming reasons, you have to create the main organization and the branch (which are exactly the same) for this situation, too.

To add a main organization:

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Click on “Partners”. You can see the main organizations in the grid, and also the branches if you click on the “+” sign at the far left side of the row.
  3. If you want to edit or delete an existing organization, find the partner in the list and click on “Edit” or “Delete”. Note: if you delete a main organization, all of its branches will be deleted!
  4. If you want to create a new organization, click “New Partner”
  5. Fill in the form
  6. Click “Add” to save

To add or modify a branch:

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Click on “Partners”.
  3. In the row of the desired main organization, click on “View”.
  4. You can add a new branch office for this partner by clicking on the “New branch office” button.
  5. If you would like to edit or delete one of the existing branches, click on the “Edit” or “Delete” button in the name row of the appropriate branch.

1.2.2 Who Does What Where information


You can add information about who does what where. It is possible to select which partners are operating in which locations. The 3W information is displayed in the partner list and in the Region and Settlement pages.

This information needs to be cleared using the following process:

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Choose “Who’s doing What Where”
  3. If you want to edit or delete an existing activity, find this activity in the list and click on “Edit” or “Delete”
  4. If you want to create a new activity click “Add Activity”
  5. Fill in the form
  6. Click “Save”

1.2.3 Working Group

1.4.1 Indicators


The exception to this process is if the Executive gives indicators from particular sources “blanket clearance”- see below for details.

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Select “Indicator Data”
  3. If you are choosing one of the existing indicators, just click “Edit” beside the corresponding indicator and fill in the new value. Be sure to update the date (which should be the date of the indicator, not the date you put it up on the website) and the source data
  4. Choose “Add Indicator Data” if you are creating a new indicator for the website that previously did not exist for that location. Select the indicator and fill in all the information, including the location where the indicator is applicable, the date of the indicator and the source information.
  5. When the form has been completed click “Add” to save the data.
  6. Verify that the indicator displays correct.

Note: You can export the whole table to an Excel sheet with the “Export” button at the bottom of the grid. If you’ve previously filtered the table, the result will be exported.

1.4.2 Key Response figures


1.4. Distribution tracking

1.4.1 Define the CORE relief Item and distribution ratio.


(CORE relief item can be constituted of a combination of other CORE relief item (i.e. as Kit). CORE relief item can be a subset and/or combination of the relief item list.

In CORE relief item, administrator can define both the country where those CORE relief items are used and the ratio that is applied for that specific country.

Administrators need also to define:

1.4.2 Create Distribution Event and fill distribution information


In order to be able to track the numbers, you have to create an event for every distribution with different partner and date. This can be done through the page Distribution Events on the admin panel. Once you’ve created your event, you can use that to associate any number of settlement and core relief item with it on the page Distribution Information.
If you would like to record a distribution, first you have to select on the top of the page the distribution event and the settlement you want to link the distribution to. Every number you enter will be linked to them. After that you can enter the numbers for the core relief items that were distributed and store each of them with the Add button.

1.4.3 Enter Distribution Coverage Information


The stock and pipeline numbers (distribution coverage information) should be prepared for recording via SQL queries with the Excel sheet named stock_pipe_to_sql.xls.
You can also record or modify the distribution coverage directly from the admin panel in menu Distribution Coverage. Please note that in case an item is not allocated to a settlement (e.g. only to country or to region level), you must select "No region" or "No settlement" options in the dropdown menus, respectively. Allocated country should always be defined.

1.5.6 Calendar

The calendar can be used to publish meeting dates. The calendar can be displayed at the Country or Region level. It is possible to schedule stand-alone or recurring events and meetings as well.

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Click on “Calendar”
  3. To add a new event, click on “Add new event”. Fill in the relevant information.

  6. To modify an existing meeting, click on the pencil icon beside the meeting record in the event list.

Note: When creating a recurring event, you have to make sure you specify the right settings for the frequency you want to achieve.

For example, you wish to set up a meeting for two Tuesdays in a month. In that case, you should not use, 'repeat every 2 weeks', unless you want to do precisely that, regardless of frequency of Tuesdays in that month.

If you want an event on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of a month, then you must create a monthly repeating event repeating on the 1st Tuesday every 1 month, and then create another event repeating on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.

This involves creating 2 events - to make this process easier, there is a 'Create Similar Event (copy)' button, alongside the 'Edit' and 'Delete' icon buttons on the calendar grid. First you have to create an event repeating on the 1st Tuesday every 1 month, then in the event list, click “Create similar event (copy)”. The event title etc details will be already filled in - you just need to change the start date and repeat frequency to every 3rd Tuesday every 1 month.


2. Settings of the portal


2.1. Editing the page layout

2.1.1 Setting up the modules

Every portal page is assembled from various parts called modules. You can find the whole list of usable modules in the “Admin panel”, under “Modules”.

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Select “ Modules”
  3. Select the module you want to edit and click on the pencil icon.
  4. You can refine the positioning options (Left panel, Right panel or Top panel).
  5. You can define the pages you’d like to make this module active and eligible on (Regional, Country, Region, Settlement).
  6. If you are certain that you don’t want to use a module on a specific page, make it unavailable for that level, or even for every level, but please do not delete modules, as you may need them later.

2.1.2 Modifying the layout

You can define and customize the pages of the portal on every level with the flexible modules listed in Admin panel/Modules.

Note: in most cases, it’s not enough to upload your data in the admin backend; you also have to enable the module on the 'Edit Page Layout' page, by dragging the module from the “Unused Modules” category and placing it in either the Left, Right or Top panels. If data is available, the module will now appear on the page you are editing - however, if there is no data available in the database, the module will not appear, regardless if it has been activated in the page layout.

  1. Navigate to the level you want to edit.
  2. Click on the “Edit Page Layout” button on the top right corner, next to the RSS feed button, then choose “Edit default layout”.
  3. On the left side, you can review the modules you currently don’t use. On the right side, you can see the structure of the page, which has 3 parts: a top module, a left panel and a right panel.
  4. You can drag and drop modules anywhere you like. If a module is restricted to certain parts of the page (see the section on setting up modules), you’ll see a warning message.
  5. The module Total population & Demography is not collapsible and intended to be placed at the top of the left panel.

2.1.3 Creating a custom layout

If you would like to have a location with different layout (e.g. one of your regions shouldn’t display the Breakdown by Settlement module, while the others should), you can define a custom layout only for that specific location.

  1. Navigate to the level you want to edit.
  2. Click on the “Edit Page Layout” button on the top right corner, next to the RSS feed button, then choose “Create a custom layout”.
  3. Make your changes.
  4. Click “Save layout”.
  5. With this you’ve removed this location from the scope of the levels default layout, so if you make any changes in the default, it won’t affect this specific location.

2.2. Modifying titles and texts

The title of the portal, titles of the modules, footer text and other pre-coded text can also be customized to fit the situation.

  1. Click on “Admin panel”
  2. Select “ Customize Language Text”
  3. You’ll see a grid with all the available text of the portal in English and in French, grouped by the page on which they appear.
  4. You can use the search box at the top of every column to search for a specific text.
  5. To edit a text, click on the relevant box in the grid, then click on the pencil icon. You can change the text without doing it as well, but you’ll only be able to save it if you select the pencil previously.

2.3. Publishing pages

Current page publishing settings include:

2.3.1 Regional

2.3.2 Country

2.3.3 REGION

2.3.4 Settlement

2.3.5 All site

2.3.6 Configuration of the maps

The module allows the display of population figures at different geographic levels, as well as infrastructure such as warehouses, schools and health facilities.

At a high zoom, the map uses Mapbox tiles – when zooming into detail, the map switches to an Open Street Maps layer.

Clicking on the panel on the left side, allows you to control the visibility of different layers.

Instead of the default Mapbox tiles and Open Street Map layers, there is also an option to use the Bing Hybrid aerial maps.

Population can be displayed by Country, by Region or by Settlement

The default loading options for each page can be set from the Dashboard Settings. On the regional page, for example, you can set the page to load ‘population by settlement’ by default, instead of ‘population by country’.

The module has a flexible layout and can appear in either the top, left or right panels. The position can be configured from the ‘page layout’ page.

If no high-level zoom data is available on Open Street Maps, you can change the Dashboard Settings, to force the map to switch to Bing Hybrid maps on higher zoom levels.

It is also possible to add infrastructure points, such as warehouses, schools, health centres, etc. This can be done from Location Settings --> Infrastructures, in the Admin Panel.
Infrastructure layers can be turned on/off from the left-hand panel of the map.

2.2. Managing users


2.2.1 responsibilities

Webservices are accessible in each instance.

In each page, you can click on the RSS icons to see the RSS feed for this page:

2.4.2 Json and GeoJSON

The webservice API can be accessed on the page webservice.php (no link on the admin panel yet). You can choose between to main options to define geographical search criteria: by bounding box or by country name.

Country name: On the country tab, you have to first choose the country, then (if you want to) you can pick a region and a settlement from the dropdown as well. Next to choose the type of data you're interested in. You can only choose one, because not every type of data can be represented to all levels (e.g. there are no indicators on country level). If you hit the 'Generate the API call' button, the service first checks if you provided all the necessary information, then checks if the options you chose are available on the preferred level. If that's not the case, you will get an error and you have to define other search criterias.

Ical is a specific type of webservice for Agenda. This webservice is still in development phase.
