NATS5 Site Groups
Site Group allow you to create and maintain groups of websites with your installation. This feature allows program owners to view statistical reports and membership information based upon grouping sites rather that individual sites. This feature is perfect for viewing reports for networked or groupings of premium sites.
Site Groups Table
- Group Name: The name of the Site Group, as well as an optional group description under the group name.
- Shortname: The shortname for the Site Group.
- Sites: A list of all the sites that are in the Site Group. By hovering over a site, you can quickly access its Site Overview, as well as directly access the site's Tours tab, Programs tab, Detail's tab, or Join Options tab.
To filter the results of the Site Groups table, click the "Filter" button under the "Add Site Group" button. The filtering options include:
- Status: Select the status to show groups that are Active Only, Disabled Only, or All groups.
- Site: Selecting a site will return the group that the site is in.
Editing a Site Group
By clicking the "Actions" button to the right of the Site Group, you can choose to edit a Site Group by clicking "Edit Site Group".
Once the widget appears, you can edit the group name and the description for the Site Group.
Disabling a Site Group
To disable a Site Group, click the "Actions" button to the right of the Site Group and click "Disable Group". Doing so will display a widget that will prompt you to make sure you want to disable the group and remove the sites from the group.
Though you can still view disabled groups by setting so with the filter, the sites that were originally in the Site Group will no longer be in the group.
Restoring a Site Group
To restore a Site Group after disabling it, click the "Actions" button on the disabled group and the option to "Restore Group" will appear. Clicking the option will restore the group, but the sites that were previously in the group will not be added back. You will have to manually add the sites back into the group.
(Note: The disabled site will only be visible in the Site Groups table by filtering the status to either "Disabled Only" or "Show All".)
Adding a Site Group
In NATS5, there are multiple different areas and ways to add a Site Group.
One way to add a Site Group is to go to the Site Groups page and click the "Add Site Group" button. A widget will appear where you can fill in the Group Name, Short Name, and an optional description for your group.
Another way to add a group is to go to the Site Management, choose a site and go to their Site Overview, and click the "Update" link in the Details tab. A widget will appear that will display a list of all of the groups, as well as an option to add a new group at the bottom of a widget.
To create the group, fill in the fields for the Group Name and the Short Name, and click the "Add Group" button.
