In addition to the buttons, the ad creation or editing form contains a series of mandatory or optional fields and parameters. These fields are the following:

1. Title

The mandatory field Title (see image, 6 and 10) is the identifying name of the announcement, both in the public employee's management environment and in the publicly accessible citizen portal via the Internet.

Management environment:

It can be defined, indifferently, on two form fields and one updates the other. At the far right of the top title line, you can see the status of the ad. The limit for this field is 300 characters.

Citizen portal:

The title defined by the public employee in the management environment is also visible in the citizen portal. The contents of the title can be located through the search engine of the management environment and through the search engine of the citizen portal.


2. Exhibition

In this mandatory section of the form, the deadlines for public exposure of the announcement are defined.


The definition of the exposure terms is done in business days , that is to say that the non-business days defined in the configuration are excluded. However, in addition to defining the number of non-working days in the corresponding field of the form, for information purposes, the number of calendar days also appears right next to it in parentheses.

In addition, there are the drop-down calendars that allow you to define the start and end dates of the public display of the ad . Business days are highlighted with a bold number and non-business days with a normal font. All Sundays appear defined by default as non-working days:

Start of publication:


End of publication:


At the same time, we also find the option that allows us to decide that the announcement is published permanently in order to facilitate the use of e-TAULER to publish those official information not subject to legal exhibition deadlines public If this option is selected, the possibility to define an end date disappears:


Citizen portal:

The public exposure terms defined by the public employee in the management environment are also visible on the citizen portal:


In the case of permanent exposure, only the exposure start date appears:



When defining the terms of public exposure of an ad , we must take into account the following conditions:

  1. The publishing end calendar does not allow you to choose a date that exceeds the maximum publishing days defined in the settings.
  2. If an announcement is received through EACAT's inter-administrative transmission whose public exhibition end date is higher than this maximum ceiling, if we want to respect the date proposed by the entity issuing the announcement, we will have of increasing the maximum publication days in the settings. Otherwise, when saving this draft or validating it, the date predefined by the issuing entity is lost and the maximum date allowed as the end of publication is set.
  3. In the event that the maximum ceiling is reduced, this decision affects in the same terms described in the previous point (2) all advertisements previously saved in Draft status or advertisements in Scheduled status that are returned to Draft status; but not to those scheduled that will follow their publication cycle when appropriate or those that are in Published status.
3. Record

The mandatory field Expedient is the space where an internal alphanumeric reference is entered that identifies the announcements:

The versions translated into the activated languages, in addition to the permanently active Catalan, are accessible from the top right of the citizen portal:


IMPORTANT: the literals of the interface appear translated in the corresponding language but, as indicated above, the translated version of the Title, Description and PDF File is the responsibility of the editors of the entity holding the service. The same happens with the classification elements defined in the configuration and, in case of failure, the original and default version in Catalan is offered. The character limit for the fields of other languages is the same as that of the Catalan version.

5. Description

8. Diligence

Two drop-down menus allow you to decide the format and language of diligence for that particular ad, despite what has been set by default in the settings. Once the ad has been removed, the tasks can be generated again in a new format or language

The character limit is 900. The contents of this field are not visible on the citizen portal.

10. Classification

In this area of the new ad creation form, the classification elements that have been activated in the configuration appear:


Provenance is the only one of the three classification elements whose activation is not optional in the configuration. It cannot be deactivated since the announcements from other public administrations that are received through EACAT are always classified by default with their external origin as a category and with the name of the entity issuing the announcement as subcategory In case there is no category created and activated in any of the three available classification elements, when creating a new ad in the management environment we will only be able to classify the ad by its external provenance.


and if not classified as External they receive this warning message when trying to continue the publishing process:


The classification by Origin allows you to choose between Internal and External:

Internal : this option allows you to open a drop-down menu where we will find the categories defined in the configuration.

IMPORTANT: If no internal category has been created in the settings, it cannot be classified as an internal ad.

Once the category has been chosen, it is necessary to choose any of the subcategories that depend on it, if applicable:


External: this option allows you to open a drop-down menu in order to classify the ad as From within Catalonia or From outside Catalonia:


• From within Catalonia: if you choose this option, you must enter in the lower field the name of the entity that is proposed to us as you type the name:


• From outside Catalonia: if you choose this option, you must fill in the Indicate the entity field manually. This field has a 256 character limit.

• Check-in: This mandatory field must also be filled in manually for both internal and external ads. This field is searchable by the management environment browser in its advanced mode and has a limit of 256 characters.

All announcements received through EACAT in Draft status will by default be classified by origin as external announcements, with the category From within Catalonia , with the name of the issuing entity as a subcategory and with the settlement of EACAT entry .


If other classification elements are activated, such as by Document Type or Subjects , their management is identical to what we saw above when talking about Internal ads.

Activated classification elements associated with an advertisement that is in the process of public display are visible on the citizen portal:


and when entering the body of the ad itself:


11. Keywords and NIFs
