What are the first steps an Editorial Board should take?

  • Create Knowledge Base content. You may want to draft an outline of pages and assign specific pages to each member of the Editorial Board. You may also want to take existing white papers or tutorials and reuse the content on the Knowledge Base.
  • Review Today pages that were created as part of the skeleton--news, events, products/services, resources, case studies, testimonials, forums, blogs. Do we need to add or delete pages for your Focus Area?
  • Review Wiki pages that were created as part of the skeleton--best practices and user groups. Do we need to add or delete pages for your Focus Area?
  • Decide if you need product categories for the Product Directory, to enable users to search for products that provide specific functionality. If so, what should those categories be? (If no categories are specified, all products will be displayed by alpha order.) Likewise for the Services Directory.
  • Add content in Today and Wiki pages--especially in Resources section.
  • Decide on your first poll question. You can change poll questions as frequently as you like.
  • Add bios to Editorial Board page. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
