1 SPECIFICATION CREATING A DEDICATED NEWS SECTION ON THE RSSB WEBSITE MATT CLEMENTS COMMUNICATIONS

2 BACKGROUND The old website didn't lend itself to carrying evolving, dynamic content such as news. However, the new site does, and how we arrange the news (and other dynamic content) on the new site needs to be thought about. At the moment, news is only ever thought about in terms of bundles of stories, usually news publications delivered at a certain frequency. The modern-day web and our new website are built to deliver news story-by- story in real time, ideally at a frequency selected by the user, rather than the publisher. We need a way of publishing stories individually in real time We need to review how our story 'bundles' (news publications) work In the longer term, we need to think about how we can put the user in control of how they access news and how frequently

3 BACKGROUND The old website didn't lend itself to carrying evolving, dynamic content such as news. However, the new site does, and how we arrange the news (and other dynamic content) on the new site needs to be thought about. At the moment, news is only ever thought about in terms of bundles of stories, usually news publications delivered at a certain frequency. The modern-day web and our new website are built to deliver news story-by- story in real time, ideally at a frequency selected by the user, rather than the publisher. We need a way of publishing stories individually in real time We need to review how our story 'bundles' (news publications) work In the longer term, we need to think about how we can put the user in control of how they access news and how frequently At the moment, we should look at this We can look at this as a second part to the work I think we need to know more about our audiences and stakeholders before fully exploring this bit

4 BACKGROUND THE OPPORTUNITY More consistency and transparency about RSSB on our website More ‘real time’ awareness of our activities Bigger boost to generating awareness to encourage people to talk to us, buy into us or buy from us THE BENEFITS More immediate coverage of our activity on our own website We become better understood through more accessible, bite-size chunks of information about what we’re doing and why Better impact for key messages

5 THINGS WE WILL NEED SMARTER WAYS OF WORKING More open eyes and ears to news opportunities Clear points of contact in the team for people to submit news opportunities Coach project managers to plan in news opportunities as far as possible, try to keep ‘spontaneous’ news to situations where this is unavoidable (eg news is prompted by something immediate) Quick sign off of news items – probably with editorial authority resting with the Communications team In time, a good editorial calendar would help us manage news Possible new approach to some news publications – focussing on creating news articles in real time rather than specifically for a published edition of a publication (like Information Bulletin) Probably best if one person is in charge of monitoring the news page, but it would not be that person’s sole responsibility to capture and translate the opportunities into news content

6 THINGS WE NEED We need to use emerging opportunities as planned communications activities as fodder for news items. Depending on the nature of each opportunity or planned activity, we can reuse and rework news items in different channels.

7 THINGS WE NEED This breaks the process down into more detail

8 OBJECTIVE We want to have the ability to post individual news items in a timely way on the website, so we need to create: A dedicated page which hosts links to the live news items A template for news item pages A ‘place’ within the sitemap for news items to appear An interface for the comms team to be able to create, edit and delete news items, and to be able to control and schedule their order and timing on the main news page Some rules around the way the news items work including things like character limits, image specs etc A button or link from the front page that takes people straight to the news page Accommodation for ‘news publications’

9 WHAT THIS SPEC DOCUMENT COVERS A basic spec and a rough design for the news page (the page which includes all the news items on it) A basic spec and a rough design for the news archive page (the page which will include all past items of news on it) A basic spec and a rough design for a news item page (a page which houses an article linking from the main news page) A spec and a rough design for the ‘backstage area’ – ie Sharepoint interface – for the news area Proposals for other related requirements – eg the look and position of the ‘button’ on the home page

10 NEWS PAGE – BASIC SPECIFICATION 1 It will replace the contents of this page: rssb/rssb-and-the-rail-industry/industry-newshttp://www.rssb.co.uk/about- rssb/rssb-and-the-rail-industry/industry-news It will be called ‘News’ so the URL / breadcrumb will need to change It will accommodate five news items at any one time (or a certain maximum number depending on what the design and page space allows) Each news item will have a photo, a title, the published date, and some summary text. Each news item will link to either a dedicated news article page, or another piece of content on the RSSB website or the FutureRailway website It will also accommodate links to news publications on the right hand side It will include the Twitter feed running down the right hand side

More >>> READ OLDER NEWS STORIES >>> …………………………………………………………… News publications  Information Bulletin (April/May 2014)  Right Track issue 9 This is the same design but we’ve zoomed out a bit Links to news publications appear here (only need space for 2 or 3) Twitter feed here (same as on home page) Link to news archive page at the bottom

15 NEWS ARCHIVE PAGE – BASIC SPECIFICATION 1 It will contain a list of news items which have been ‘knocked off’ the main news page but haven’t yet expired (need to be advised on a maximum number to show in the list) It will be called ‘News Archive’ Just like the main news page, each news item will link to either a dedicated news article page, or another piece of content on the RSSB website or the FutureRailway website Unlike the main news page, each item will only be the title and date It doesn’t need to include the Twitter feed running down the right hand side but it could do for consistency with main news page

16 NEWS ARCHIVE PAGE – ROUGH DESIGN 1 Subscribe News publications  Information Bulletin (April/May 2014)  Right Track issue 9 News Archive Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consect etuer adipiscing elit15 April 2014 A much simpler list – each one hyperlinks to the news item If a news item EXPIRES, then it disappears from the list If a news item is created on the main page then the oldest one is bumped off that and appears on this list at the top Need advice on setting a maximum number to appear in the list – eg 30 ?

17 NEWS ITEM PAGE – BASIC SPECIFICATION 1 It will be a bit like a hot topic page (similar template) Ideally the URL ‘crumb’ will follow the main news URL – the exact wording of the URL we need to take advice on – eg /item ?? How a news item page will be populated will be as a result of how people complete the form within the Sharepoint environment (see later)

In the unlikely event that the story appears on the main news page – it will disappear, leaving a gap – but this unlikely as there will be always be enough stories etc If it appears on the News Archive page – it should just disappear from the list.

42 Behind the scenes CREATING/EDITING A NEW NEWS ITEM To be able to complete all the information to create a new news item to sit in the list Need a defined character-limit for news item titles Need a defined character-limit for news item body text Need to be able to upload all relevant images (and there either needs to be an interface to crop and re-size within the upload OR there needs to be defined parameters for the images we upload (eg size, pixels etc) Need an area at the bottom for link Needs to prompt user to fill in all necessary fields if user fails to (red asterix stuff!) Needs to be able to offer a preview of what the news item would look like if it went live and then a return to edit the news item and save it Need to have a quick-publish button which links back to the ‘status’??

48 The main headline photo uploaded needs to appear in a smaller way on the main news page (on the left) than it does when someone actually clicks on the news item (on the right)

So you could search for some items, the results come up, and then you select them to save them into a new personal list. CREATE NEWS ITEM EDIT DELETE PREVIEWEXPORTSEARCH The Export function needs to allow people to select items using the list of all news items (backstage) or from a personal list created compiled from search results and other selections. We need to be able to export the data as ‘plain text’ into Excel and possibly into other templates – there may be a role for XML here?

50 ADDITIONS TO THE FRONT PAGE AND MENUS

51 Latest News more here >>> A box for the Latest News and a link to the news page could appear here

52 Latest News more here >>> The link to Industry News should change to ‘News’ but still be accessed via the mega menu here

53 NEWS PUBLICATIONS

54 With news appearing as live items on the site, the need to create specific news publications is reduced. However, some audiences may still need to have bespoke packages of news items sent to them, or may prefer to be able to download bespoke packages of news in another form, like a pdf. This is likely to be the case with Information Bulletin – especially in the short term. The approach proposed here is that historic news items over a defined period of time (eg 2 months) would be selected and reviewed for relevance and accuracy and then downloaded from the system into an marketing campaign and a pdf. This would mean the received would resemble a collection of news items with click-throughs to the individual items on the website. News publications in pdf form would either need to have some sort of workflow linked to suitable software (if appropriate) or designed manually if it was deemed more efficient that way. NEW APPROACH
