AMIS is a documentation and exchange center that organises the following information:
A yellow page is a business card of the institution or company. The visitors of AMIS will get a first impression of the institution via this yellow page.
Prepare the description and presentation of your institution: basic information about the institution, its goals, its activities, its products, its labels... Most important are the contact details of your institution (telephone, address, email, website...).
A yellow page can be made attractive with nice pictures. If you want that your page will load quickly (even with a slow Internet connection), you should downsize your pictures and put them in JPG format. For photo editing software see the useful software tools help section.
It is also possible to upload a presentation leaflet in PDF format (as a file attachment). For more help on creating PDF files, click here.
First you need an account (with a username and password). If you don't have an account, you can create a new account (in left menu). To create an account, you need an email address. After registration, your password will be sent to your email address. This password can only be used for the first login; you will have to provide a new password when you login the first time.
Once you have an account you can upload and create your content. When you are logged into AMIS (with your username and password), the Create content menu will appear. When you click on it, you will be given the option to create a yellow page. If you are logged in and you follow this link you will also be able to create a yellow page.
Complete all fields as well as possible, so that the visitors will easily find your yellow page.
If the yellow page is available in one language only, set language to Language neutral, otherwise set the language to tha actual language of the translation. For more information on the translation of your yellow page in different languages, click here.
It is the name your institution. If it has a (well known) acronym, please start with the acronym followed by the full name of your institution. For example: MINAGRI - Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock of Rwanda.
Here comes the main text, the presentation of your institution with pictures etc. The descrition can contain "rich text" and have a more or less complex layout by using the editor toolbar. For more information on using the toolbar of the editor, click here. For specific help on inserting images in your text, click here .
