The purpose of a Project
Use a Project page to present detailed information about an ongoing or completed University project.
The Project template includes a range of components that let you add text, imagery and multimedia elements to the page.
If a project is still in progress, you can publish the page with the expected completion date to show users that it is ongoing. You can then update the page as required when the next phase of the project has been completed.
Project pages have a large red banner across the Title and Summary. This helps users to identify them as Projects as no other pages on the University website have this feature.
All essential information, including the project status and duration, is displayed at the top of the page, so users can find it easily.
Examples of Projects
You should choose from one of the subtypes listed on the template to tell Typecase which type of Project you are creating.
The Project page must have a User need, Title, Summary, Navigation and Owning organisation. Read more about these in our Core components guide.
You can choose to add a Pinned item image to the page.
You can create a page without using Labels. If you do need Labels, find out more about how they work.
Adding Project information
Choose from the options to select the Project's current status.
- In progress
If the status of the project changes after you've published the page, for example, from 'In Progress' to 'Complete', edit this component and republish the page.

Choose from the options to select the currency for the Project's budget.
Type the overall budget into the 'Budget' field without the currency symbol.
