Once you have these
- in FreeDAM go to “Company Data – Company Details”
- Click Edit
- Enter these details in the appropriate fields
- Click accept.
Getting Setup – Giving staff access to the screen
Once you have entered the id and password (the screen will not be visible in the list without a key), go to Company Data, Staff Configuration.
Select a staff member, click on the ‘Access Tree’ tab, Edit and drag the ‘Online Integration –Tributes’ entry from the left side of the screen into the box on the right. Click Accept when you see it in the right side list.
The staff member will need to logoff and login again to refresh their navigation list.
Preparing a Tribute for upload
In your navigation tree you should now see ‘Online Integration’, expand it to find ‘Tributes’
On entering the screen the tribute details may be empty, clicking Edit will automatically fill the details from information you have entered elsewhere in FreeDAM.
You may freely change details in the tribute, note that it will not cause any data on other screens to change. (this allows you to exclude or change information in the tribute without accidentally changing the official record)
Clicking the ‘Reset from Database’ button will clear all fields and reset them to the ‘default’ values for the selected individual.
The tribute text can contain any information for upload but typically will be used for the newspaper notice. FreeDAM will populate it for you automatically with the ‘Primary’ Newspaper notice from the newspapers section of FreeDAM.
FreeDAM allows you to select a tributes online ‘Theme’ to be associated with the tribute. FreeDAM downloads these themes from tributes.co.nz. Select the theme required for the tribute you will be uploading by clicking on one of the themes in the list on the right.
Once the data on the FreeDAM tributes screen is correct and as you wish it to be displayed online; click the ‘Upload Tribute’ button. FreeDAM will send this information to tributes.co.nz and your tribute will be available to view immediately. FreeDAM stores the tributes.co.nz address, click the address to see the tribute online or use clipboard button to copy the URL.
Updating a Tribute
Tributes can be updated by changing the details on the FreeDAM tributes screen and clicking upload again.
