The new Toolbox is our internal gateway to all things Hutchies. We've brought together the most used online systems and tools to one easy access point. This quick guide gives you an overview of how the Toolbox works and its cool features.

Navigation

Summary of Navs

We’ve created a few options to help you find your way around the Toolbox so you can choose what works best for you.

  • The Hutchies logo at the top centre of every page takes you back to the Toolbox home page
  • The ‘burger’ icon (menu button) in the top left corner of every page  expands our ‘mega nav’ to give you shortcuts to our main online systems
  • The footer is a list of system and resource links. It’s essentially the same as the mega nav, but appears at the bottom of every page
  • The 'back to top' button - appears when you scroll down a page and takes you straight back to the top of the page

Mega Nav

Date, Region, Time & Weather

Toolbox has a date, region, time and weather feed with live information directly from BOM. This feed is based on the region you nominate from the drop down options. It automatically remembers the last region you selected for next time. Extreme weather warnings are highlighted orange or red depending on severity. 

Alerts & Notifications

Important company alerts and notifications appear on the Toolbox home page. These include things like public holidays, regular annual events, and occasional things that crop up. You can hide and un-hide any alerts or notifications as you need. Check out how to do this below. Hidden notification automatically reappear after 24 hours to ensure you don't miss any important updates.

Alerts range in appearance, mainly varying in colour to indicate the type of alert. Public holidays usually use a shade of grey. Special safety notices or warnings may be more prominent reds or yellows.

Hiding an alert or notification

To hide alerts or notifications, simply click the 'x' icon in the top right.

Showing Hidden

To recover your hidden alerts or notifications, simply select 'Show Hidden'. These also automatically reappear after 24 hours.

Tiles

Toolbox provides fast access to a range of Hutchies' systems, resources and tools. It will continue to grow and change with our needs, so if you've got a suggestion for a new tile or other content, please let us know.

Quick Google

The Quick Google bar is exactly what it sounds like. Simply key in your search term as you do in Google or another search engine and hit enter or search. You will be automatically taken to your full Google search results.

We're using this tool to measure regular searches that may help us improve the Toolbox.

The Feed

With all the things that are happening around Hutchies, we thought it'd be nice to incorporate the Hutchies news feed, live from our website. Clicking any of these posts takes you directly to the content, whether it be on social media or a third party news website, you can stay up-to-date with all of our latest news right from the Toolbox.

Footer

At the end of every page throughout Toolbox you will see our footer, which provides a list of systems and resource links. These can also be found in our mega nav by clicking the burger icon (menu button) in the top left corner.
