Getting Started with IATI

5. Ready?

Once you have filled in all the required fields as set out by the guidelines, you are ready to publish. Do a quick quality assurance check on the data and then publish this information.

Don’t worry, if you do publish something that is incorrect, you can edit and republish at any point the information will be updated.

This also applies to when you update your project / programme every quarter: update the existing one, you do not need to create a new project / programme every quarter.

For more advanced users, you can check the quality of your own project data by using, Check for improvements – http://dataworkbench.io

If your organization publishes for the first time, send an email to the HelpDesk Open Data and we will ensure we add your organization to the approved publisher list after we conduct some quick quality assurance checks.
