26 Tools to Aid State DOTs in Responding to Workforce Challenges Figure 3.2. Data structure for state practices. 3.2 Administration Site The Workforce Toolkit Administration site is an easy-to-use tool for site data management, including data entry, editing, and deletion. This site requires login with a username and password to make any changes to resources. Changes to the database can only be made through this site. The login automatically expires after 30 min of inactivity. After logging in, the user can navigate to the Edit Resources or Edit Resource Facet pages. The site also contains a logout page and a home page. 3.2.1 Edit Resources The Edit Resources page allows the site administrator to add, delete, or edit resources in the database. Resources can be quickly accessed by sorting them according to title or Resource ID. Once the desired resource is selected, a text box displays Resource ID, Resource title, and the option to edit or delete. The edit option opens a screen displaying the resource's ID, title, short description, long description, author, and other relevant information including reference, organization, contact information, web site, resource cost and format, resource application, and other resource users (if known). Once the desired change has been made, the user selects "update" to accept the changes or "cancel" to discard them. The delete option removes the resource from the database. The database allows a resource to be deleted even if it has facets.
