SIGBI Programme Database
Remember that if you want to add Projects to the SIGBI Programme Database, go to Manage Directory. The button to Add a Programme Report is prominent within this section, and is available to ALL Members, so that the Programme Action Officer can delegate the inputting of reports to other Members and does not have to do it all herself.
The instructions for inputting reports has been added to the instruction manual for the Manage Directory facility, which is available from a link within the Manage Directory section of the website, and can also be accessed using the link below.
Any Member can also search for reports (only reports input since 2011 have been moved over from the SI Database) from within the Search Directory section. Again, instructions can be accessed below and from the Search Directory section of the website. If you have any feedback or suggestions please send them to email@example.com for consideration:

General Tips for using the Members Area
The sections of the members area are listed in the left-hand side panel. Where there is a small down arrow next to the section title, it means there are sub-pages. Click on the arrow to open up the sub-pages to see what the section contains. (The arrow will then change to an up arrow). Note that clicking on the arrow does not take you to that section. You will stay on the page you are currently viewing until you actually clicking on the title of a page. For the sections at the bottom of the list, after clicking on the down arrow you will need to scroll down to see the sub-pages. To close a section again, click the up arrow. Clicking directly on a section title will take you to the top level page of that section and will also display the sub-pages in the section. You will still need to scroll down for the sections lower down.
