Working Parties Maintenance

Working Parties Maintenance

Working Parties are a type of box file with the added properties of a Date, Time and Emergency. As working parties occur on a particular date they appear in the Home and  Programme pages and not the general pages. In these pages the working party appears as a title and date linked to the Box Details view. Creating and editing is the same as other box files, however; titles should be kept short so they do not wrap. For more details click on the buttons above.

  • User Photographs
  • Blog 


When a working Party is created the person in the role of Working Party Coordinator is automatically assigned as the leader and point of contact. This can be changed to either replace that individual or add additional  coordinators. 


In common with all programme boxes working parties have an Emergency property which is accessed by editing the box cover. The Emergency property is used to publish a last minute change or cancellation. Once text has been added to the emergency field it will appear in the header of every page until the start Date and Time of the working party. 

Car Sharing

Car sharing is enabled by default, however; this may not be applicable in all situations. In this event click the Disable Car Sharing button.


A Working Party may be created by either an Editor or the Working Party Coordinator. If it is created by an Editor an email is sent to the Working Party Coordinator asking him/her to review the new working party. The Working Party Coordinator may either edit the item or simply flag it as reviewed by editing Life. The item will not be published until it has been reviewed. Subsequent edits do not generate emails or change the Reviewed flag.


After the start of the working party it will appear in the Recent Activities section of the home page as a link to the blog. The blog provides a place to describe the events of the day and for website users to upload their photographs. It is in effect a second box cover and is linked to the main working party.  


When a Facebook user clicks the Like or Share buttons associated with the working party Facebook will display the working party title, the first cover image and a default message. After the working party Facebook will reference the Blog rather than the main working party record.
