When creating a new item, some tools give you the option to add attachments. You can add any number of attachments, and they can be any combination of local files, websites, and items stored in Resources. To add an attachment, follow the appropriate instructions below:

  • To attach a local file from your computer, next to "Upload local file", click Browse to find and select the file on your computer.
  • To attach a URL, next to "URL (link to website)", type the URL in the box provided, and then click Add.

    Note: You do not need to include the http:// when you type the URL.

  • To attach an item from Resources, under "Select a resource", click Attach a copy next to the file you want to add.

    Note: You can attach a file from one of your other sites (including your My Workspace area), provided the file's access properties are set to This file is publicly viewable. To browse for files in other sites, click Show other sites.

As you add attachments, they appear in a list under "Items to attach". When you've selected all the files, websites, and Resources items you wish to attach, review the list, and then, at the bottom of the screen, click Continue. You should see all your items listed under "Attachments".
