"Regular" ALAC members have "author" permissions. They can write articles for the site
but they cannot make them live on the production site.
Nashton is set with "Administrator" permissions and will be able to do the work below.
"Authors" cannot do this.

Before you start:
Go here http://alac.icann.org/applications/
And get the:
Number
Name
And URL of the application you're going to add.

Next Step: all due diligence documents you want to upload to the library must be PDFs
loaded on your hard drive. (Word allows you to "print" to a PDF.) Suggestion-- rename
the pdf with the NUMBER of the application first. This makes it easier to find when you
want to upload it. Save all your DD applications in a special folder on your drive.

Got everything? OK you're ready.
Use Firefox (not Safari; IE may work, other browsers I am not sure about)
OK, Log in to http://www.icannalac.org as nashton.

On the lower left menu under "Committee Menu" click on "Reports"

On the next screen, you will get this




                                          QuickTime™ and a
                                     TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                  are needed to see this picture.




Click on the little edit icon to the extreme right of
"ALS Application and Due Diligence Library"
You will get
An edit screen that looks like this




                                              QuickTime™ and a
                                         TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                      are needed to see this picture.




NOTE the two icons top right. A disk icon SAVES to the production site. The X icon
cancels and closes the file. VERY VERY important: when you are done you MUST click
one or the other of these icons or the file will remain open and you will not be able to get
back in to edit it. (If you forget this can be closed via another way but more on that later.)

Also- there is a timer and this edit page will only remain open for so long. If you have a
lot of entries to do you should click on the disk icon to save your work after each entry.
This will dump you back to the icannalac home page but at least you will still be logged
in. and some of the changes will have been made. Click "Reports" again and pick up
where you left off to do an additional entry. You have been warned!
You are going to add a new entry, but you need to make space for it.

Put the cursor to the left of the topmost entry and click. See how the screen changes
slightly, with sizing bars around the Barbados field:




                                           QuickTime™ and a
                                      TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                   are needed to see this picture.




Now mouseover the icon directly above Name and above that, "Size" and notice that it
says ADD ROW.
Click it.

You will get this choice:




                  QuickTime™ and a
             TI FF (LZW) decompressor
          are needed to see this picture.




Click OK to insert a row above the selection.
Enter the information you have.




                                           QuickTime™ and a
                                      TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                   are needed to see this picture.




IF ICANN has loaded the application to the alac.icann.org website, now it is time to
make the link to it,
Highlight the name of the ALS, click on the icon above DD Report that looks like a globe
with a chain link.
You will get a window like this




                                          QuickTime™ and a
                                     TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                  are needed to see this picture.




Click on the "Web Location" globe on the lower left.
In the next screen, paste in the URL and be sure to put something in the TITLE field that
will act as the alt tag. Example "application" or something.

Now you're going to upload the due diligence report.
Type in the date the DD report was distributed to ALAC.
Highlight the date.
Look for the icon above the DD Report column that looks like a red Acrobat document
with a chain link. If you mouseover it it says "Link to a Document."




                                           QuickTime™ and a
                                      TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                   are needed to see this picture.




Click there to upload your PDF.
You will get a screen that looks like this:
                                        QuickTime™ and a
                                   TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                are needed to see this picture.




In the upper right look for the Upload a Document box.
Browse your hard drive to find the pdf. Select it.
It will now appear in the box. Click Upload. You will get an "uploading document"
message.
When that is over, you will see the pdf document has been linked.




                                        QuickTime™ and a
                                   TI FF (LZW) decompressor
                                are needed to see this picture.
Use the center justification controls as needed. You can obviously do more, prettify it,
add colors etc.

Otherwise, you're done.
Click the disk icon to save (or the X to close and cancel).
