If the news is not relevant for all visitors at ki.se but mostly important for those who want to know more about what is going on on your department, check this option. 

External target group

External target group is used for all news aimed at external target groups. You can then choose to give the news a little more information: for example, which institution or group the news is about.

All news that has the target group external will be displayed in the list Latest news on the start page news.ki.se and in the list "News" on the Staff portal home page. It will also appear in other lists at ki.se, depending on which tags you have chosen.

If the news is only interesting for the users who visit the web site of your department you should check the box Show in list/or only for host institution (visible when you have unfolded the groups menu from Kimkat).

Target group Staff

Co-workers is used tor news directed only to internal target groups. These will show in lists on the Staff portal.

Tags

Mark the news with tags for it to show in the correct context later. There are three cathegories of tags; Administrative, Education, Research.

Create a newslist.

News list

News lists are created in a widget. Widget is short for window gadget and is a function that creates a window for just the news you want to show in a specific place on ki.se or on any other website. You will probably not create widgets very often, and many editors may never create any. If they are created correctly, they will continue to show news from news.ki.se according to their settings.

You create the list by selecting Create news list in Workbench.

Here you select the target group for the news, department if applicable, tags within the three tag groups Administration, Education, Research. Often you might want to use one or two tags for the selection of news not to be too narrow. Finally, you choose how your news list should be presented, ie. number of news and layout.
