Upload Files using the File Manager

File Naming and Formats

  • Always use proper file extension suffixes when saving files. Image files end in either .jpg, .png or .gif depending on what type of file it is.
    • Photographs should be saved as .jpg
    • Graphics (non-photo images) should be saved as .png or .gif
       
  • Export Files to PDF format (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc) 
    • Not everybody has the ability to open files other than PDF files on the internet. PDF files are web friendly and open in the browser window, the other files are downloaded, and the user may not be able to open them if they don't own the specific program. 
       
  • Do not use special characters in filenames.
    • Characters such as ?, %,#, /, :, ;, •, etc are illegal. Only use letters, numbers, underscores, hyphens. Periods should only be used in the suffixes.
       
  • Keep your files names short and descriptive.

Linking to files


When linking to a PDF file, click "Browse Files" to upload the PDF file, or select the file if it's already been uploaded. Once the file has been located, click the plus symbol to the right of the file to make the link. 

Note: If you are replacing a document, you can go directly to the dashboard, go to your files, open the folder your file is located in, and upload the updated file again, and check the box next to where it says, "Replace Existing Files". Important!! THE FILENAME MUST BE THE SAME AS THE FILE YOU ARE REPLACING.
