The SGIP Test Bed application enables users to submit test beds for inclusion in the SGIP Test Bed Directory.
Before a user submits an application, he must create an account (if he doesn't already have one) and login. Information necessary to create an account includes; First Name, Last Name, Company Name, Email, Phone, Username and Password. Once all information has been entered, the user will click SUBMIT. Next the user will be prompted to login with the newly created account.
After logging in, the user must enter the following test bed information: Test Bed Name, Contact First Name, Contact Email, Phone, State/Region, and Country and must also check a box agreeing to the Terms & Conditions listed.
Additional optional information which may be entered includes: URL, Affiliations (Government/Regulatory, University/Academia, Association/NGO-NPO, Private/Industry, Other), Purpose of Activity, Capabilities, Focus Area and Collaborations. If a user fails to fill in one of these fields, he will receive an error message letting him know which fields he needs to complete to continue.
The user will then click SAVE & RETURN TO HOME or CONTINUE. When the user chooses CONTINUE, he is taken to a review screen where he can either EDIT the information or SUBMIT the entry.
When an entry is submitted a Test Bed Notification email is sent to users in the group TestBed Notifications. Also, the user who submitted the idea will be taken to a Thank You page. To edit copy on this page, login and click on ADMIN. Next click on MANAGE CONTENT and then COPY. Find the record named SGIP TESTBED THANK YOU COPY. Click on the paper/pencil icon to open it. In the COPY field you can type the thank you message that you want to appear after someone fills out the form. Click OK to save changes.
Before a submitted application appears in the directory, someone at SGIP must review the submission and approve it for inclusion. To do this, login and click on ADMIN. Next click on MANAGE ADD-ONS, SGIP COTB TESTBED and then COTBTestbed. You will see a list of all entries submitted on the right side of the screen. Click the paper/pencil icon next to a submission to open the record. Click on the Test Bed tab. At the bottom of the screen you will see a field APPROVED FOR DISPLAY. Click on the box to check that field. Click OK to save changes.
