FAQ is a good example of a commonly requested corporate page.
On this page, you will find the most relevant and frequently asked questions by employees together with their corresponding answers.
The summary section on the left side filters different types of questions according to related departments: Communication, Finance, Human Resources, IT but more filters can be added in Powell Manager if needed.
You can click on each department to view questions and corresponding answers.
Deploy the template from the Powell manager
Our FAQ feature is a view from our Content Search web part. To deploy it, you first have to create your "Questions and answers" list from your site configuration on Powell Manager, and add the web part with the right view.
You will see a step-by-step guide on "how to configure" below.
First of all, you'll have to go to the site where you want to add the template. You can do so by selecting "Powell Intranet" in the Powell Manager navigation bar. Then you can select the "Design" section, and click on "Sites" under the "Sharepoint templates" list.
Then you can click on the "edit" button of the desired site, or create a new one.
After this step, you'll be redirected to the following page where you will be able to create your list and deploy the feature.
Create the "Questions and answers" list
From the "List" section, available from the left navigation in your site configuration, you have to click on the "Create a new list" button.
From there, a pop-in will open itself on the right side of your page. You don't need to fill in anything, you just have to click the "Select a list model" drop-down.
Under the "Powell Intranet" list models, you have to select the "Questions and answers".
Once you select it, you can directly click the "save" button at the bottom of the pop-in.
After saving it, you can check on your site lists, the "Questions and answers" is now created. You have to synchronize it by clicking the "sync" button.
Add the template to your page
We can now pursue the edition of the page where you want to add the FAQ template. You can either "Create a new page" or edit the one that's already been created.
This feature is a simple web part to add to your page, so it can be integrated as a new element to your page.
In either case, if you decide to create a new page or edit one, you'll be redirected to the page edition. From the bottom of this page, you have the page components shown depending on how you've decided to add some rows and elements.
You have to click on "Add a web-part" from the placement where you will want your FAQ.
After selecting the FAQ display and setting the query, you can finish your web-part configuration and click save.
Once you're done, you can deploy your site by clicking on the "sync" button of the site as shown below.
Your site has to be instantiated in an existing site collection. If not done already, you can do it in the "Site collections" section. You can fill up the sync information as you want it to be, and click on the bottom "save" button.
FAQ is now deployed in your portal, but it's empty so you can now fill up your "Questions and answers" list from your portal, in the "Site Content" section, by adding a new item to your list.
