Upload the issue PDF to PageSuite


Upload the PDF

Time needed: 15 mins. Ideally upload as soon as the hi-res PDF is produced by Dan/Rich, usually by 5pm Tuesday, to get it out the way – but you can upload up until midnight Thursday, before the issue goes live at 00:01 Friday morning.

You’ll need:

  1. A Pagesuite login – request your own at [email protected] or use the one below in an emergency
  2. The hi-res PDF of the new issue – find it in the issue folder on the server at Firstnews > Shared > First News > 02_DESIGN TEAM > DAN > 4. Digital PDFs
