Upload content to Library


This article provides instructions to uploading content media files in the Library.

Important

The maximum file size limit for content uploads is 2GB, due to limitations set by IIS.

Upload content

  1. Click the Quick Actions menu on the top right and select Upload Media, and proceed to step 3 below.

    Or click Library from the Appspace Menu navigation bar on the left, and proceed to step 2 below.


  2. Click the ADD button, and select Upload Media.


  3. In the Upload window, drag-and-drop content from an open folder on your desktop, or click the select files link and browse for content.

    If uploading media via the Quick Actions menu, ensure the Upload Location points to the correct folder within the Library, as it defaults to the Common Library folder.

    Note

    You can continue dropping files into the drop zone, while other content items are still being uploaded.

    Also, uploaded content items can be edited or removed before being added to the Library.

  4. Click Save once the upload is complete.

  5. To configure content properties, double-click the desired content in the folder.


  6. In the Summary tab, enter in the Title, as this is a mandatory field. Optionally, you may enter in the Article, Caption, Content Expiry, Content Tags and even upload a custom thumbnail for the content.

    To preview or download content, click the Preview, or Download buttons respectively.

    Additional content information such as type, and size can be viewed by hovering on top of the ellipse.

  7. Click the Attributes tab to display attributes and values associated to the content. Additional custom attributes and values can be filled in their respective Attribute and Value fields.

    Note

    These attributes cannot be accessed through action scripting. They are used primarily to provide additional identification to the content item.
