Website Frequently Asked Questions

1

How do I return to the homepage?

Underneath the menu banner at the top of each page is a "breadcrumb trail". For example, if the "breadcrumb trail" looks like this: Home > About ICCBBA > Mission and Goals. Simply click on “Home”.

The homepage can also be navigated to by clicking on the "ISBT 128 More than Identification" logo at the top-left corner of each page.  

2

Will my bookmarks still work?

 

They should. We have made every effort to set up redirects for pages people were likely to have bookmarked on our old website – however these may not work if a document is updated. Therefore, we recommend that you bookmark the page where the link to a document resides, as opposed to bookmarking the direct link to the document. 

3 Where do I log in?

 

The login area is on the left side of a page beneath the side menu and above the ICCBBA globe logo. Keep in mind that scrolling down towards the bottom of some pages will make the login area not visible.

4

Where is the Site Map?

 

The Site Map link is on the left side of any page under the side menu – the link is just above the ICCBBA globe logo.

8 How do I request a new Product Description Code?

 

Assuming the product requested can be sufficiently described with current ISBT 128 terminology, you would complete an online product request form. Because these forms are specific to product type (e.g., blood, cellular therapy, etc.), they are located in the various Subject Areas. For example, for the Blood Request Form, navigate to the Subject Area tab and select "Blood Transfusion", then select "Request a Code" from the side menu.

20

How long does it take for my message to post on the message board?

 

On a weekday, your post should appear within 24 hours. ICCBBA needs to review posts before they go online to ensure accurate information regarding ISBT 128 is posted on the site. Any posts made on a weekend will typically be published on the following workday. 

21

Can I get notifications when the message boards are updated?

 

Unfortunately because passwords are associated with facilities rather than individuals, it is not possible to subscribe to message boards at this time. ICCBBA will work on this for a future release of the website. At the present time, the message board would need to be checked periodically to view answers/comments to questions.

22

What is an RSS Feed?

 

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It allows users to receive amendments to ICCBBA's "What's New" feed automatically

If you subscribe to the What’s New RSS Feed, you will see an icon on your browser that says, “What’s New at ICCBBA”. Click the link and you should see the latest from ICCBBA. Depending on your email system, you may also receive notices in your RSS Feeds folder. 

23

How do I subscribe to the "What's New" RSS Feed?

From the homepage, navigate to the What’s New section in the lower part of the page. Select "RSS feed", immediately below the What's New at ICCBBA link.
