The dashboard is where updates to your ‘followed’ pages or sections are stored. You can choose to follow any page where you see a follow button. Once clicked it will turn green:
Updates to your selected items will be notified to you via a news item that will be placed on your dashboard.
The dashboard can be accessed via the dashboard link at the top of the page. The number associated with the dashboard link will tell you how many items have been added since you last visited the dashboard. As soon as you visit your dashboard the counter will be reset to zero.
On the dashboard itself you will see a list of your items in reverse chronological load date order. Each headline is linked to the relevant item. The tags beneath also act as links to a wider set of search results as they relate to your follow criteria. The tags highlighted with the blue background specifically relate to tags that match your follow items. The tags with the grey background relate to other tags on that item.
You have the option of setting the dashboard to keep your items for a rolling 7 or 30 day period.
On the left hand side of the screen you will see the full list of follow options available to you, eliminating the need to search for individual pages.
You must be registered and logged in to use the dashboard.
On the dashboard you will see a second tab called manage alerts. This has two sections—email alerts and email notifications.
Product-related emails—this is for general communication. When the Foundation has something to announce (e.g. the release of a new standard) we will send out a general communication which you will receive if, upon registration, you ticked the box to allow us to send you emails. This is where you can manage that preference going forward.
Follow email notifications—this is slightly different to the general communications mentioned above. It is related explicitly to receiving email alerts relating to your follow items. This allows you to be alerted if any new items of interest are added to your dashboard. You can specify the frequency of email alerts or you can specify never, if you are not interested in this type of alert. The default will be set to never, until you specify a preference.
The timing of your alerts will be governed by the time you first set up your alerts. For instance, if you opt to be alerted weekly the timing of your weekly alert will be one week on from the point where you set up or amend your alert.
Your existing email alert selections will not transfer to the new system. You will need to re-specify what you would like to be alerted on.
The active projects on the work plan can be filtered by type. The default view lists all projects alphabetically, but you can easily filter the list by selecting the appropriate tab to quickly locate the project you want. We have also added some useful sort options. The key difference is that we are now basing the work plan on the next milestone and its expected date.
You can follow any of the projects from the work plan and view any documents associated with a particular project that are open for comment.
The project pages draw together all related information for a specific project into an easy-to-use interface; whether that be news, updates, meetings and events, consultation documents, supporting material, published documents, related information from other projects or project history.
To view comment letters for active projects, select the project you are interested in from the work plan. Click on the consultation feedback tab to find comment letters associated with the project. You will be able to view the letters by clicking on the view the comment letters tab.
For completed projects please visit our archive website at archive.ifrs.org
We have also added a feature to enable you to download all the comment letters as a single zip file. Please be aware that some projects have a significantly high volume of letters and the download time will vary accordingly and can be lengthy.
To submit a comment letter you must be registered and logged in.
Locate a document that is open for comment (as described in section above) and from the consultation tab click submit a comment letter. If you are already logged in, a form will appear where you can input your submission. If you are not logged in, you will be prompted to do so.
All items (both PDFs and html pages) have now been indexed and are searchable. The search function also comes with a helpful predictive feature. Just start typing in the search box and select from the suggested list. You can of course ignore the suggestions and keep typing your own search string.
Where an item on the search results page has a date, this means it is a document with a publication date, as opposed to a site page which will not have a publication or last updated date.
You will now be able to access the main website, eIFRS and the shop with the same account. This eliminates the need to remember multiple passwords.
If, however, you purchase anything through the shop you will be required to add some more information to your account upon check out, in order for us to fulfil your order.
Registration and login is required to access the dashboard, view an unaccompanied standard, submit a comment letter and register for a meeting or webcast.
Your existing account will transfer to the new site.
The main meeting and events diary can be accessed from the home page or the news and events hub page. For ease of use the diary can be filtered by year, month and meeting type. This is where you can find both upcoming and historical meetings.
You can also access the meetings and events diary from specific project or group pages. This way, the diary will already have been pre-filtered to only include those meetings related to that group and/or project.
This is a new section aimed at supporting the implementation of recently issued IFRS Standards and the application of existing Standards. It gives access to material including relevant webcasts and articles by IASB members, agenda decisions and supporting materials on IFRS for SMEs.
Why do we believe in a single set of global standards? What benefits does this bring to the world economy? Which countries and organisations agree with our mission and have adopted IFRS Standards, and to what extent? This section explains it all.
You can also discover more about the objectives of the IFRS Foundation, and the adoption process for implementing IFRS Standards.
From the issued standards page select the list of IFRS Standards. Selecting a standard from the list takes you to its landing page containing a concise summary, available translations, relevant news and links to other related content.
To view the standard, click the link entitled login or register to access our unaccompanied standards. You will need to be logged in to do this.
In line with the research undertaken during the analysis and design phase of the project, we were advised to limit what content was migrated to the new site. In order to improve the user experience, older and less frequently accessed information has not been migrated to the website, but that information will continue to be available via the archive site until a longer-term solution is in place.
Key to our content migration strategy are the following –
- On the new site you will be able to find historical meetings from 2014 onwards, however there are some earlier meetings for some groups such as FCAG, Insurance Working Group and Effects Analysis.
- On the new site you will find all Board and Interpretations Committee material related to active projects in their current or final stage, along with all published documents and consultative material (Discussion Papers, Exposure Drafts, Comment Letters) for the whole project.
- Old news items will be migrated where they apply to current or final stages of projects.
- Some historical projects will only be available in the archive; a decision will be taken later as to whether or not all completed projects are migrated.
There is a permanent link from the new site footer to the archive site. To return to the main site home page from the archive site the user should click on the IFRS logo.
Be aware that as of Saturday 10 June 2017 the archive site will no longer be updated and will serve as a temporary repository for historical material only.
The new site has been designed to work responsively across a variety of devices—desktop, tablets and mobile phones.
If you are viewing the site on a mobile phone you will see the burger menu becomes active and you should use this for primary navigation.
If you are viewing on a tablet, the optimum experience is with the tablet in landscape mode.
