These scenarios provide an example of microsite management tasks performed by the microsite owner and a content author for the microsite. Your company may follow a different process according to its business requirements.
The microsite owner for the analyst relations group of a large company has been asked to develop a new microsite on the company intranet. The old Analyst Relations microsite contains out-of-date information and is hard to maintain. Using Microsite Management will make setting up the site and maintaining content much easier. The new site will include links to analysts' reports, lists of key contacts, information on the company's policies, and reports on competitors.
In cooperation with the company intranet administrator, the microsite owner reviews the existing structure of the company's Web site. Together they determine that the new Analyst Relations microsite should be available from the Sales root-level page. After the company intranet administrator has created the Sales root-level page, the microsite owner creates the new Analyst Relations page link on the Sales screen.
The microsite owner creates links to other intranet and Internet pages and to views within the Siebel application. He adds some text and graphics along with content created in applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, HMTL, and Adobe Acrobat.
The microsite owner associates the access groups to each of the page items. He makes sure that only certain groups of end users will see the items displayed on the page and also that the right contributors are able to edit the items' content.
Date ranges are also associated with each of the page items, so that only current content appears on the page. Because a number of page items require the same access groups and dates, the microsite owner uses the group properties feature, which allows him to set the same properties for all selected items together.
All the pages available from the Sales page may contain the same set of links and images in the navigation bar. This set of links should typically be created in a template. When the new Analyst Relations page is complete, the microsite owner edits the template to include a link to the new page. All the Sales pages containing that template now contain a link to the new page.
Depending upon the complexity of the analyst relations microsite and the approvers (and authors) involved, the company may choose to use Content Center to streamline the production of this microsite, as outlined here:
