Additional Economic Gateway Features and Tools

Engage the Public

Many of the most popular Economic Gateway modules include the option to allow the public to submit content to your site. A form is added to your website to which you can direct site visitors to fill in information to be considered as website content. Once submitted it is held in a queue until you – upon receiving an automated notification that you have received content – log in and review the content. You have full editing control of the content once it's submitted, and if you like the content all it takes is checking a box to approve it to be shown on your Economic Gateway website.


Recommended Uses

  • News
  • Events
  • Area Businesses
  • Resources
  • Commercial Real Estate


  • Automated Email Notifications
  • Review, edit, and approve submitted content before including it on your site




Secure/Private Section

Access to any page on your Economic Gateway site can be restricted to only logged-in Member Users of your website.

You can create and share as many Member User accounts as you need.
