In the Files area you have a file browser in which you can organise your files so you can find them more easily. You can sort your files into folders and also create subfolders.

  1. Click a file or folder icon and drag and drop it onto a folder to move the file or folder within that folder.

  2. Name: You see all your folders and files that are not in folders listed to access them easily.

    When you click on the name of an image, you see a preview of it. You are presented with a download option when you click on another file.

  3. Description / Tags: View the description and tags of your folders or files to know quickly what the content of them is.

    If you do not give an image a description, the file name is used as alt tag to identify the image when you place it into an image block or display it embedded in text.

  4. Size: The size of your files and folders is displayed.

  5. Date: The date you created a folder or uploaded a file is shown.

  6. Click the Edit button  to edit folder or file properties. Continue with editing a file.

  7. Click the Delete button  to delete a file or folder.

    A pop-up window requires you to confirm the deletion because you will not be able to recover the file once it is deleted. If you use a file in a journal entry and / or on a page, the warning message tells you that this file is in use elsewhere so that you don’t delete it by accident.

  8. If a folder or file is used in a portfolio that has been submitted, you are not able to edit or delete it.

  9. Click the Download folder content as a zip file link in order to get a zip file which contains all files and folders of the current folder.

    Site administrators decide in the Artefact type: File settings for how long the zip file is kept on the server.
