A company name change from Xact! Collections to Xact! Resources prompted a site redesign and some new functionality for the client Confidential Document Access functionality. While the first release has proven to fulfill clients’ needs during its first half year of use, it became apparent that some automation would streamline the administration processes and eliminate repeated tasks.
To help manage the process of keeping online documents current, the current revision features a system to track the initial view date and time of a document, which is then subsequently deleted five days later. A tracking an auditing system is built into the administration portal, keeping administrators appraised of when documents are viewed, when they are scheduled for deletion, and when a document has been removed from the system.
- PHP – used to generate dynamic pages, validate login, deliver documents in a secure manner, and save uploaded files to the correct location
- MySQL – holds user account information and document locations, first view and deletion tracking inforamtion.
- Dynamically generated html pages and forms
The founders of the Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) have a goal of integrating various and disparate branch sites under the main international site, yet still allowing flexibility for an individual branch to maintain its own separate and unique web presence. The current design reflects the beginnings of an overall presence that will allow for the display of a branch site within the international site, while keeping the main international site navigation to core information about the programme accessible.
The non-standard navigation directly reflects the founders? incredible ability to question standards that may have been around for generations. The core site content provides the foundation for the international program, and aren?t foundations usually down below everything they are supporting?
The site will evolve as the Massage in Schools Association (MISA) grows into the international community envisioned by the founders.
