Site Setup 


  • Site Name - Site Name is a mandatory field notated by the *, but it can be hidden by clicking on the hide site name radio button.  This may be a desired option if your logo includes written content.

  • Logo - You will see the Konveio logo loaded as a default on the site.  
    • Upload a new logo to replace default logo or click on hide logo checkbox to hide
    • Logo has maximum height of 100px and will resize to fit that height.

  • Homepage Sidebar Description - can be populated with additional detail and description. 
  • Homepage Link to "More Info" - This is a button within the About block on the default homepage which allows you to add an additional URL to link to.  Use this to add a "More Info" button to this box. 
    • Contact Us button will be enabled through the Advanced form discussed below.

Enter in a character limit to determine the maximum length of comments.

Expanding the comments section allows a couple of options on how commenting works.  


  1. Commenting - Registering users at the site level or document level - From the site settings you can allow users to anonymously submit comments without registering to the site for ALL documents.  This option removes the ability for the website to store comments by user as it is made anonymously.  Checking the second box will require users to register when commenting on ANY document unless Commenting is adjusted at the document level.    
    • Comment Types - There are three standard comment types that are enabled and visible to all users by default when entering a comment.  A drop down box will allow user will select the type of comment they are adding. Each comment type is color-coded. The order can be rearranged and different categories, added, renamed or deleted.   
      • Suggestion, Question, Idea
      • Hiding Comment Types - by selecting the Manager-only radio button, the drop down for a comment type will be available for manager or administrator level to view/use.
  2. Comment Tags - Tags are a type of filter that can be added to the comments by the manager or administrator. This is often used for qualitative comment analysis or coding.
  3. Comment Visibility - Moved to edit under each document.
