Content - Files

The Files area is a document storage for folders and files. Folders and files are artefacts and can be added to a portfolio page.

A suitably organised filing structure will help you retrieve artefacts to add to portfolio pages.

  1. Select Content.
  2. Select Files.

Note: When uploading a file you will be required to acknowledge that you own the artefact or have permission to use it. This means:

  • the artefact is your own, or
  • you are allowed to reproduce and distribute it, i.e. it does not violate any copyright legislation and
  • the artefact adheres to the Terms and Conditions ascribed by UniSA, see Copyright in the Library website

Create a folder

It is recommended you create a folder structure before uploading any files.

  1. Enter the folder name.
  2. Select Create folder.

The new folder will display.

You may create any number of folders or sub folders. To view which sub folders and files sit within a folder, click on the folder name. Use the Home link to return to the top level folder directory.  You can arrange files and folders by dragging and dropping the icon in front of the file / folder name onto another folder icon.

The folders named viewfiles and images are automatically created The viewfiles folder includes files from imported pages whereas the images folder includes your uploaded profile pictures. You can move them out of this folder and store them in a different folder.

If you want to move a file or folder out of a sub folder, move it onto the parent folder icon parentfolder.

Links to files and folders which have been added to portfolio pages are maintained even if they are moved in the file structure.  Renaming files and folders will not affect links in portfolio pages either.
