Adding Files

You can start to add files to your portfolio at any stage to your file area which acts as a storage repository. Once added, they can be placed onto pages

The number of files you may upload into your files area is dependent on your set file storage limit which is displayed in the quota box on the right of the screen. You can use drag and drop to organise your files and folders

To add a file, which could be an image, a Word file, a PowerPoint file, movie etc. you go to the Content tab and choose Files

You tick the box that specifies using the file does not breach any Copyright legislation and then Browse to the file you wish to add

Your file is then added to your repository and appears in the list

The icons over to the right of the file allow you to Edit or Delete it

Edit

This allows you to give the file a Description and/or Tags.

The Description field adds that description to your file listing so it makes it easier to see what sort of file is in your repository – e.g. you could add a description of topic, or whether it is an assignment, or draft etc.

Tags are labels or keywords that you can use to classify and search for files. You can create an index of Tag classifications. To associate multiple Tags to a file, separate each Tag entry with a comma – e.g. assignment, module ANY101, nursing.

If you have tagged other items, clicking on Show my tags will generate a list of those Tags you have previously used within your portfolio and the number of times they have been entered. Clicking on an existing Tag in that list will add it to the tags for this view, or remove it if you have already tagged the view with this tag

Using Search My Portfolio you can find all of the files and pages you have associated with a particular Tag, thereby creating a filing system or index for your portfolio.  

By default, any file you upload cannot be commented on by friends or group members. Ticking the Allow comments option will mean that anyone who is able to view your file or page can also comment on it. You would need to use this option prudently.

Delete

This option is self-explanatory and simply deletes the files from your repository
