3.1. Types of Resources

You can upload documents such as word files, PDF files, power point presentations and photos. Maximum file size is 5 MB. You can also view and download these resources, depending on the permission settings applied to them. For instance, some resources will be accessible only to members of a particular group. Once you have read them, take some time to rate or review them so that others can find them to be useful. You can also add one or more keywords to a resource to help others find it more easily. Read more about these options below.

3.2. Adding Resources

You can currently add documents (word, excel, powerpoints, PDF) and photos. Videos and images can be uploaded as well.

Step 1: Go to the group where you want to upload the resource. Click on the ‘Resources’ button on the sub-navigation bar underneath the group image.
