Create a new issue and configure the TigerGenius Settings before setting it as a TigerKit. 

Create a new issue 

From the homepage select Create Issue, followed by TigerDesigner and create your new issue.

Add content and TigerGenius Settings 

In the Design tab of your issue select a panel followed by TigerGenius Settings.

Tick the areas of the panel that you would like to be editable to an author.

In the below example the strapline of a story panel has been selected so the author can input the name of a new starter. Enter a Title and Description to help make it easier for your author when they are completing the fields in TigerGenius.

Add interactivity and TigerGenius Settings 

You can add interactive modules by selecting the Interactivity tab. Currently web links, iFrames and file downloads can be made editable to an author in TigerGenius.

To make a module editable in TigerGenius, select it followed by the TigerGenius Settings option from the fly-out menu. 

In the below example a Download PDF File module has been set as editable, so the author can upload a PDF when they use the TigerKit.

Add publication settings 

Add finishing touches to your publication, such as a Style or Security Rule. In the below example a Style has been created and applied, which gives the publication an on-brand toolbar.

If you need to create a new publication setting select Publications followed by Settings from the main menu. Publication settings can then be applied to your publication on the Manage Publication page. Simply select the tab followed by an option from the drop-down list. 

Set as TigerKit 

Once you have designed your issue it is ready to be set as a TigerKit. 

To begin, select the Manage Issue button for the issue on the Manage Publication page, followed by TigerKit Settings.

  • Tick the TigerKit checkbox. 
  • Enter a suitable name and description for your kit - this is important as it will make it much easier when an author uses it.

In the publishing section you can choose if you would like an author to be able to publish an issue in TigerGenius or if you would like it to be automatically published. Simply tick the checkbox.

Any publication settings that you have applied will be listed here as read-only. These settings will always be applied when the TigerKit is used by an Author.
