Welcome to the Toward Zero Deaths Resource Manager. We appreciate your feedback as we build this tool. After clicking on the Resources tab and while browsing the Resource Manager, you’ll notice a small blue speech bubble button in the bottom right corner of your screen. If you encounter any errors or have any feedback along the way, we ask that you click that speech bubble. It will take you to a specific feedback page where you can give suggestions or voice concerns. We appreciate your input.
CREATING AN ACCOUNT
While an account isn’t required to download resources, before you can get started uploading any content, you need to create an account on the Toward Zero Deaths website. This can easily be accomplished by heading to the Toward Zero Deaths resources page and selecting the “Create Account” button.
From here, you’ll be required to fill in a simple form including your name, email, username, password etc. You will also be required to select which state you operate in. Select “National/Multistate” if your organization works in multiple states. Pay special attention to spell your “Organization Name” correctly as anyone else in your organization will be grouped according to this name.
After you’ve filled out the form and clicked the “Create Account” button, you will receive a confirmation email from TZD. Using the link in the email, you can then use your username and password to log into the resource manager. Upon logging in, the first page that you’ll see is the TZD Toolkit.
You will receive an email with a link to log in.
To upload a resource, click on the Resources tab then under “Browse Resources” select your state. This page features all available resources within your state, including your uploaded resources at the top of the page, assuming you have uploaded at least one resource.
Near the top of the page you will see a large orange “+” button with the caption “Add new item.” Click this button to begin uploading content. You will then be taken to the “Add Resource” page.
From here you can select the resource type from a dropdown menu and fill in any other appropriate information regarding the file.
If you want to link your resource to another page or video, you can paste the link in the “Link” section of the form. If this is a YouTube or Vimeo link, the video will naturally embed itself into the final resource page. Otherwise, it will be accessible via a button on the final resource page.
At the bottom of the page, right above the “Save File” button, you’ll notice there is a button to upload an image. This image is strictly used as a thumbnail for your resource and is completely optional. If left blank, a default image will be generated.
Once you’ve finished filling out the form (don’t forget to add your file in the “Upload File” section), click the “Save File” button at the bottom of the page. Your resource will be uploaded to the database and you’ll return to your resources page. You should see your recently uploaded content at the top of the page complete with your name and the date you added the resource.
From here, you can click the pencil on top of the resource to edit it or the “x” to remove it from the resource manager. You can also click on the resource itself to be taken to the resource page.
To download new content, start at the main resources page. From here you can select a state, or multistate, from the dropdown menu to narrow your resource selections of organizations. After you’ve selected a state, you will be taken to an overview page with all of the resources that have been uploaded in that category. If you are logged in and there are any resources that you uploaded yourself in that resource category, you will see options to edit or delete them in the form of a pencil or “x.”
In the top right corner of the page you’ll also notice some options to filter your results based on what type of media you are looking for. You can also change your selected state from this menu. Once you’ve found the resource you are looking for, select it to be taken to its resource page.
The resource page will tell you basic information about the uploaded file and give you an option to either download the resource directly, or be taken to the website where the resource exists (in the case of YouTube videos, for example).
After you’ve downloaded the asset you were searching for, it would also be helpful if you headed to the bottom of the page where a small contact form exists. This contact form will ask you how you plan to use the resource you are downloading and is completely optional.
