How To: Upload Group Files

Tags: , ,

**UPDATE 5/15/2011** An exciting new feature called “Docs” has been added, allowing you to write and edit collaboratively with members of your group. In order to avoid confusion with Docs, we’ve changed the old “Documents” tab to “Files”. All the files you uploaded to your group in the past can be found on the new “Files” tab on the left side of your group’s page.

Whether you want to post a related article, power point presentation or a record of minutes from a meeting, the “Files” tab can help members share information and collaborate. Tag your file with a category to easily access minutes, syllabi, or whatever you upload. Want to learn how to upload your files?

Just follow the instructions from the video below… or click here to view in HD.

    Wonderful job, Sarah! Your screencast is clear, engaging, and short — I think it’s a great way to show our members what they can do with the site. Excellent work.

    I’m looking forward to working with you to make sure that all group admins are aware of this new functionality.

    Thanks Matt. I used Screen Toaster to capture my screen and uploaded that to Vimeo. I never knew that Screen Toaster existed until I saw it linked to your blog about a week ago, but I really like what it can do. I decided to upload it to Vimeo as a .mov so users would have the option of scrolling back and forth through the video (which is not an option with Screen Toaster)…
