Super Service

When to Use a Super Service

Like Program or Service pages, a Super Service page exists to share information about a service an agency provides to Georgians, businesses, organizations, or other government entities. The primary difference between Super Services and Program or Service pages is in the layout and level of editorial-control. While much of the content on a Program or Service page is placed as individual blocks which an editor can add, delete, and rearrange (much like a Landing Page), a Super Service is set up with an intentional, less flexible structure.

One reason you might choose to use a Super Service is because of the built-in How Do I block. In most cases, this is a set of numbered steps, describing the process someone would take to receive the service. It often makes up the bulk of the page’s content.

Overall, consider the content that can display on a Super Service page when deciding whether it is appropriate for your service information:

  • Basic text: Title, Overview, Additional Information, and Disclaimer Text

  • Imagery: a default Orchard brand image, a Logo, or another custom image such as an illustration

  • Process instructions: First Step or How Do I

  • Related information: Links, Services, Agencies, and News

  • Contact information: Location, Contact, and Location search form
