Reglens - Developments

Developments are regulatory postings from the various agencies around the world.

The Development Box that appears in the grid and list of a News Feed containes a large amount of information and navigation capabilities. It is designed to give you a synopsis of the development consisting of the headline, and a snippet from the development. In addition, the box tells you which tags have been assigned to that article, when it was published, where it was published and offers several ways to share the article.

Development Box

To read the article, click on the headline and you will be brought to the original article on the site it was pulled from.

Development Box Headline

Underneath the headline, there will be a synopsis of the development. This will give you a quick way to get an idea of what is actually in the development without having to go read it.

Development Box Synopsis

Below the synopsis, the Entity Tags associated with the development, including the Obligations and References are made available by Entity Type.

Development Box Type Tags

There are six possible Entity Types shown with each development. These are:

The number in parenthesis is the number of individual Entities for each of the Type Tags. The Type Tags can be clicked to reveal the specific Entities associated with the article. They will toggle on and off when you click them. Once the list of Entities is revealed, you can click on the Entity Tag to immediately go to developments associated with that Entity.

Clicking on one of the Type Tags will give you the actual tags for that Entity Type.
