Inserting required data

Before users can start using the portal administrators must prepare portal classificators. Eneta portal has the following classificators:

  • keywords (for blogs and announcements),
  • list of regions (for companies),
  • IO classification (for companies),
  • Partnership levels (for companies),
  • technical levels of events,
  • target audiences of events,
  • user interests (for companies).

Keywords

Keywords are used to tag blog postings and announcements. For each keyword there is group where keyword belongs. By default, the following groups are deployed by deployment package:

  • technical – this is group for keywords that are related to some Microsoft product or technology,
  • common – this is group for common topics like blogging, community, education, free software, user groups etc.

You can find keywords from root site list called Keywords.

If you want to change the name of keywords group you should edit keywords list. Keywords group is choice field and you must edit the values of choices before inserting the keywords that your portal will use.

Regions

When registering new company user must select at least region where his or her company has office.

  • open portal as administrator,
  • move to root web lists view,
  • click on list Regions,
  • delete data that was inserted during deployment,
