Adding Files to Projects

You can add files, images, links, embed codes, and text to each page of your Project. You can add one file, image, link, or embedded code per page, and then add supporting text to the page. To add content to a new project page, click on the appropriate icon. In order, you have buttons for adding Files, Images, Links, Embed Codes, and Text.

proj_add_content_1Adding Files

Clicking on the Add Files button will bring out a sidebar on the left. Here you will have the options to select any files you have already uploaded to your account, upload new files, and add files from Google Drive. You can add images here, or using the Add Images icon.

Once you select or upload a file, it will display on your page. Most common file types will offer an online viewable version. This includes, but is not limited to, Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets, PDFs, Power Points, common image file types, and common video file types. Any files that will not display online will offer a downloadable link. In this example, we used a Word document.


In addition to any file or other content, you can add text to the page by clicking on the Pencil icon. This will give you a page title section and a textbox to explain the importance of this page in relation to your Project. You can do this to any page with files, images, links, and embedded code.


Adding Images

To add an image to a Project, choose Image icon. A sidebar will appear on the left side displaying any images you have already uploaded. You also have the ability to upload new image files from here as well. Select an image to add it to a page.

proj_add_image_1Once you select an image, it will appear on your page. On the left, you have the options to crop and rotate the image. If you want to add text to accompany this image, use the Pencil icon to add it.


Adding Links

To add a link to your page, choose the Link icon. From there, you will have a window display that says Add External Resource. Enter the link in this box and then click the checkmark icon.

proj_add_link1After creating your link, you will see a box appear that says We're Working Hard... This means our system is going to your link to get a screenshot to display. At first, it will look like the image below.

proj_add_link2Users can still click on the link, but after a few moments, a screenshot of the link will appear. The screenshot of the website will have a link button in the middle of it. Users can click on this button to view the link. You also have the ability to add text to this page using the Pencil icon.


Embed Code

To add embedded code, you will first want to obtain the code. Then, use the Embed icon. A small window will pop up for you to paste your embedded code. Once you are done, click the checkmark to add your code.

proj_embed_1When you have successfully added your embedded code, you will see it appear on the page. In the example, we embedded one of our Youtube videos. You can add text to accompany this page using the Pencil icon.


Adding Text

You can add text to any page using the Pencil icon. Text can be used to accompany a file, image, link, embedded code, or by itself.
