Guide to uploading campaigns to the communication centre March 2013
2 Department for Work & Pensions Uploading a campaign This is a simple step by step guide to uploading campaigns to share with colleagues. You’ll need to be registered and access the communication centre using your designated desktop icon, to ensure it opens using Mozilla Firebox browser. Alternatively, your design company can upload items. They’ll need to be registered and follow this guide (although note they cannot actually see campaign folders). If you have exceptionally large data volume, it may be necessary to transfer files by disc. We recommend you view the existing campaigns to see how these are presented. The communication centre is a repository and not a webpage, so there is no test area. If you upload files by mistake or wish to replace or delete them, you’ll need to email the brand enquiry service to ask for them to action this for you.brand enquiry service
3 Department for Work & Pensions Step 1 Choose a short identifiable name for your campaign folder. If you need sub folders due to a large volume of files, you’ll need to also name these. We’ll describe later how iON will create your folder(s). Then, name your files correctly before you upload. Begin with an abbreviated version of the campaign folder name, followed by the item descriptor. This is so the names are short enough to display easily. See Important Note below. For example, you may choose a campaign folder name of Get Britain Working. So, your individual uploaded items might be named GBW A campaign guide, GBW employer ppt, GBW poster A4 and so on. Upload items as a pdf if you don’t want colleagues to download and change these. Important note: Files appear in numerical and then alphabetical order within your campaign folder, so name files to display in a logical order. If an information guide or instructional aide is to appear first, examples could be GBW A campaign guide or, alternatively, use a numerical such as GBW 1 Instructions.
