Receiving Documents/Information Calendar An on-line calendar has been created which the Business Support Team can populate with Committee Meetings and other important dates. Any dates put into this calendar will automatically synchronise with all of the E-Governance Committee Devices once they are connected to a Wi-Fi network. To open the Calendar, either select the S Planner icon from the bottom of the home screen, or click on the day/date on the Calendar showing on the home screen.

Please remember – the calendar will only update with new dates if your device is connected to a Wireless Internet Connection (for example Estuary Head Office or your home wireless internet connection)

Important – this calendar is for viewing only. Only members of the Business Support Team should add appointments to this calendar.

Email All committee packs will be sent to the devices via Email from the Estuary Business Support Department. These will appear in the Combined Inbox on the home screen as circled below. These packs will be in a PDF format, although occasionally you may receive plain emails containing information relevant to your committee membership (These accounts are not advertised so you should not receive SPAM email). Each device has been set up to only receive packs for the committee in which the user is a member. Viewing Your Email To ensure you do not miss any emails sent to any of the accounts on your device, please ensure that your device is showing the Combined Inbox view as show below:

You can scroll through each of the individual Email accounts if you wish by simply ‘tapping’ the mail box name (as circled above)

To return back to the Combined Inbox view, simply continue to tap and scroll through all of the available accounts.

If you accidently go to a screen or application by mistake, push the Home icon return to the device Home screen.

When a new email arrives it will be shown in the Combined Inbox view on the Home Screen of your device, plus a small ‘M’ icon will be displayed by the time in the bottom right of the screen. To open an email, simply tap on the title as circled below:

This will then open the Email program - available emails will be shown on the left hand side and the selected email on the right. You can select which inbox you view by tapping the text shown at figure 1, but we strongly recommend Combined View is used so as not to miss any important messages).

Saving Committee Packs (Email Attachments) The final step in receiving your Committee Pack is to save it to the device. Simply tap on the email message then click the attachment tab (in this example Attachment 1) as shown in figure 2 (the number after attachment may increase if you have multiple attachments in the Email.) and then click on the Save icon shown in figure 3. The attachment has now saved onto the device in the ‘Download’ folder for viewing at any time (offline viewing)

Please remember that you will only receive Emails containing Committee Packs if your device is connected to a Wireless Internet Connection (for example Estuary Head Office or your home Wireless Internet Connection) Page 7 of 15


File Management Folders have been created on your tablet device which correspond to your group membership. Clicking on the ‘My Files’ icon on the home screen will take you to the download folder (the default location for saved documents) and display any sub-folders:

Once committee packs have been saved into the downloads folder it is recommended you move the document into its relevant folder. To do this, simply select and hold on the document you wish to move and then slowly drag over to the left panel into the required folder. To view the content of any folders simply tap it with your finger/stylus. If you have a large number of folders the left side panel of the screen can be scrolled up or down by dragging with your finger. Ticking the selection box to the left of a folder/file in the main view will change the top menu icons to display options for deleting/copying/renaming the selected folder/file.

If you are unsure of an icons purpose or meaning – select and hold the icon for a couple of seconds and text label will display.

Viewing Documents Using ‘My Files’ Icon Your tablet has been setup with ‘Folders’ corresponding to your group membership. To open a document simply select ‘My Files’ from the home screen, select the folder which contains the document you wish to open and select the document. By default all PDF documents will open in Adobe Acrobat Reader

Using Adobe Acrobat Reader All documents will be sent to the device in PDF format. The easiest method to locate and open documents is through ‘My Files’ as explained previously, although you can open directly from within Adobe Reader on the home screen as shown below:

Once Adobe Reader is opened you will be presented with a list of documents stored (downloaded) on your device. To ensure that you can see all documents you should click on the Documents tab (figure 1) and select All PDF’s (figure 2).

To open a document, simply tap the title in the document view. If you are already in an opened document you can return to the list of available documents by pressing the Documents/Recent button in the top left of the screen.

You may find that some pages of a document are best viewed in Portrait Orientation, whilst others are best viewed in landscape. Adobe Acrobat will automatically rotate and re-size the document if you rotate the device. Once the document is received and downloaded from an email you no longer need to open the email to access the document. Always open the document through ‘My Files’ or Adobe Acrobat from the home screen.

Managing Your Documents Over time you may build up a number of documents on the tablet device, or possibly have duplicate items if pack updates have been sent or accidently downloaded again. Within Adobe Reader there is the facility to ‘Manage’ documents on the device – including deleting or renaming items. To access these features you must be in the main Documents view tab (as shown on page 8) and then select the Manage button in the top right of the screen.

Once in the Manage screen you will see that a series of empty boxes appear to the left of your document list, together with 4 icons at the top of the screen. These icons allow you to perform the following tasks on any of the documents you select: Make a copy of the selected document

Move document to a new folder

Rename Document

Delete Document

Simply ‘tick’ the box of the document you wish to perform one of these actions on by tapping the box (to remove the tick, tap again) and then select the required action. Page 14 of 15
