How to Add/Edit An Office Closing

Purpose of the Banner

To create a central, efficient place to quickly report non-COVID related compact office closings.

Who can add a closing?

In order to add a state office closing, users must be:

  • logged into their ICAOS account
  • listed in the directory for their state compact office

If you think you should have permissions to add an office closing and don't, please email for assistance.

Adding a New Closing

Step 1

Login through link in ICAOS site header

Login to your ICAOS account by clicking the dropdown menu at the top of the site. Be sure to click "ICAOS" instead of "ICOTS" from the dropdown. 

Step 2

on the homepage, under the main navigation menu and current closing banner (if there), click on "add closing."

Once you are logged in, navigate to the home page. Now that you are logged in, you will see the link at the bottom of the banner to add a closing.

Step 3

fill in form with closing information

Once you click the link to add a closing, you will be taken to a page to input information about the closing. In the title field, put a simple description of the closing (i.e., "Hawaii Closing" is fine). This helps the site keep track of the closings to feature on the homepage banner.

For "start date," enter when the closing will begin. For "end date," enter when the closing will end. After you have input all information, click "save."
