 7.1 Adding, Updating or Removal of a Webpage Document
 

 

Introduction: Webpage documents are links to files which can be downloaded off the website. These have been categorised so that any new documents will automatically appear on the correct page with a description of what the document contains. These documents are all in PDF format. The first step is to create a database entry (As described in this page). The second step is to create the file in PDF format and upload it to the server. See help document 7.2 Upload New/Replacement documents for instructions on how to upload a document.

 

You will need Administration or Calendar Editor permissions to access this feature.
