I was going to add a bunch of tips and suggestions to the page, but I
couldn't get my wikistyle definition to work.  So I'm putting them here

Re Step 1:

Use one of the enhanced newpagebox recipes (
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/NewPageBox, lower down on page or
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/NewPageBoxPlus) and the {$AuthId} page
variable (http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PageVariables) to more easily create
the office pages:

    (:newpagebox base=Profiles.HomePage label="Create office" button=right

The Current Offices command can be simplified to:

    (:pagelist group=Profiles fmt=#title list=normal name=-SideBar:)


Re Step 3:

Simplify maintenance by using

(:include Profiles.SideBar:)

to create the sidebars for the supporting groups.  Then they'll reflect
edits without you lifting a finger.


Re: Final Thoughts, limit editing to appropriate people:

It sounds like you must be using AuthUser anyway, so take advantage of it.
By adding [@?action=attr@] to the page URL, you can add passwords for read,
edit, attributes, and admin.  You'd want to add an edit password, in this

id:<person's AuthId>

e.g. id:bart if the person's login name is bart.  See Cookbook:AuthUser for
more information.
