Blog by Scott McLear, Senior Digital Manager at Registers of Scotland.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Digital Comms team here at Registers. Another sprint has come and gone, so we would like to share what we delivered with you.
#RoS400 website refresh
The General Register of Sasines may be 400 years old, but the website doesn’t need to look like it is! The team have been working hard on expanding the width of the site and bringing in more related content.
This has led to the creation of the new RoS400 campaign pages on the site.
Decision tree build
We were approached by a colleague a couple of weeks ago who was looking for an easier process for rectifications. After a lot of conversation, caffeine, and late nights, we built a new feature on to the site!
Although we are using this for our rectification process, I’m confident we will be finding lots of ways to use this across our site!
Facebook live stream
We regularly host events for our stakeholders and in January and February, we ran a series of ‘next steps’ consultation workshops across Scotland. It was pretty clear when we started to promote them that – certainly in the big cities – places would sell out fast (hooray for us, boo for those wanting to attend).
So we decided to make RoS history and stream LIVE for the first time ever! Quite apt during our 400th anniversary year, no? You can read more about the kit we used and how the stream progressed on our recent blog.
Our new blogging platform!
Last but not so least — and as you will know if you’re reading this — we have launched our new insideros.blog… blog! This is where we will be sharing all the developments behind the scenes right here at RoS!
