Related documents and links - how do I add these to the homepage of my consultation?

Support -

Related documents and internet links can be added to the homepage of your consultation through the 'Edit Consultation Details' link on your consultation dashboard. 

Here, you can add related documents or links.


Adding related links

Select 'Add a link to a related site', and add your link in the URL field and your hyperlink text or title in the Title field.



Adding related documents

You can add as many related documents as you like. Select the button 'Add a document' and enter the link text you wish respondents to see. There is a grey button underneath to choose the file you want to upload.


Once you've finished adding documents, ensure that all the completed fields are saved by clicking the 'Save' button at the bottom of the page.  

You can re-order the documents that have been uploaded at any time by clicking and dragging them into a different order, or alternatively by using the green arrows on the right-hand side of each bar.


Amending uploaded documents

The 'edit consultation details' part of Citizen Space allows you to change most things within it even after your consultation is published. You can re-order the documents you've already uploaded and/or change their link text, and you can add further documents.

However, if you're amending a live consultation and the changes you're planning to make to the related documents might affect how existing respondents would have responded (e.g. if you are providing extra information which could sway their opinion), then you may wish to contact them to let them know.


What it looks like to respondents

The links to other sites and to any documents you have uploaded will appear on the homepage of your consultation.

Documents and links will be displayed on the consultation overview page.
