I have a space available to hire. How do I list it on the site?
If you have a creative workspace, see the guide below for step-by-step guidance on adding it to CAN. Should you have any questions, please contact us.
Please also note that, due to the ongoing development of the tool, some fields/text may differ slightly to the screenshots below. However, we will do our best to update the guide if any functional changes are made.
To submit content, you first need to register for a user account on CAN and then log in to the site. You do not need to create a profile for yourself or your organisation, though if your space is owned by an organisation that you manage on CAN, you can include a link to it's profile later on.
Once you are logged into the site, click on your username and choose "Manage Spaces" from the drop-down menu.
You'll see a list of all of the spaces that you currently manage (this list will, of course, be blank if you have not yet created any spaces).
Next, click the "Add a space that you have available to hire" link in the "Related tasks" navigation pane
This will bring you to the Spaces form, where you can tell us about your space, the facilities it offers and the cost to hire it.
Complete the form, providing as much detail as possible. Note: fields marked with a (*) are required.
When the Spaces directory launches, members will be able to filter by various criteria to find suitable spaces. Please be sure to include accurate values for the fields such as size, capacity and indicative hourly cost, as these will all be filter options. You can also include an image of the space, if you wish.
Finally, if your space is linked to an organisation that you manage on CAN, you can select the profile from the drop-down list at the bottom of the form.
If you do this, we will create a link to the space on your organisation's profile page, as well as on any other content that you submit to the site on their behalf. We will also link the space back to your organisation's profile, so that members can find out more about your organisation before getting in touch about the space.
Once you are happy with your submission, click the "Submit" button at the bottom.
It is not yet possible for members to browse the Spaces directory, as we need to collect sufficient submissions for it to be a useful resource. However, in the meantime, you can edit or delete your space listing, or add more spaces.
Don't forget that, as well as spaces, you can also submit articles to the site, such as an "Opportunities" or "News items".
