Edit/display modes of the new storefront features:

Below, you will find a description of the editing and viewing new Storefronts features:

  1. Background and Profile Image
    You can edit the background image and the profile picture by selecting the “edit” icon. Once the icon is clicked, the popup with the possibility to upload the source or drag and drop the image will appear. There will be guidance on the preferable size of the image for both components.

  2. Progress bar
    The progress bar indicates the level of filled-in sections. Once the user enters the page and completes the modal, the progress bar will indicate sections that need filling in. Each box underneath the progress bar will contain the section title, basic description, and the button that will redirect the admin to the selected section that needs to be completed.
    The admin can toggle the modal by selecting the arrow to hide/show more information.
    When the page is fully completed, the progress bar will be filled and the success message will be displayed below.

  3. Expertise section
    Adding expertise will be possible by typing a keyword (that is not connected to any database) of the user’s preferences, interests, and skills. It can be deleted by clicking the “x” icon on the tags underneath the field.
    The list of experts will be displayed in the form of bullet points.

  4. Resources section
    The user can drag and drop the files or browse them in the file dialog. Once uploaded, it can be deleted underneath the drag-and-drop area.
    The user can view the file in the browser window or download it by clicking the icons on the specific item.


  5. Contacts
    Each contact will have the following fields: profile image, Name, Title, Email, and LinkedIn link (optional). The user can click the “edit” icon to upload an image. The “Main point of contact” checkbox will be marked when the user should be the organization's primary contact.
    The user will select the “add new contact” button underneath the contact blocks to add a new contact.
    The contacts will be displayed in the form of profile blocks with an image and filled information. The main point of contact will have an additional tag to indicate their purpose.

  6. Featured projects
    The project section is divided into Featured Projects and Other Projects.
    Once the admin selects the projects to display, they will be displayed underneath the “Add projects” box. There’s an option to mark the project as featured - which will be displayed on top once saved.

    1. Create a new Project - directly from the Storefront page
      In order to create a project that is not displayed in the dropdown list, the admin will select the “Create new” button above the dropdown list. Once clicked, the modal with all the project fields will be displayed. Once filled in, the new project will be displayed on the list below. The project items created directly from the Storefront page will have an additional “edit” icon. The admin can edit them directly from the Storefront page.
