Adding Content

    Web and File Content Forms

    Clicking [Add Content] on one of the tiles pictured in the previous section will expand the tile and show you two options: [Website Link] and [File Download]. Pictured below are those options side-by-side.

  1. [Website Link] allows you to create a hyperlink to open a webpage in a new tab. When a new Website Link is created, it will be displayed on the tile for any future visitors of the Tile Content page.
  2. [File Download] allows you to upload a file which can later be downloaded by other users. When a new File Download is created, it will be displayed as a link on the tile for any future visitors of the Tile Content page.
  3. Web and File Content Fields

  4. Link text is the text that appears in blue. This is the text you click to activate a link. For example, if I want to create a new link to, I might use "APP website" as my link text, and, once created, my new link would appear on the tile as
     APP Website.
  5. Department designates which department the content belongs to. New content added under "Office" will appear on the Office tile.
  1. Category specifies which heading content will appear under in a given tile. Check item 3 of Content Tile Layout above if you are still unsure of what "Category" refers to.
  2. Visibility rank is a rank designating how near the top of a tile content should be. The lower the rank, the more visible content will be. For example, content with Visbility rank 1 will appear near the top of a tile (with other rank 1's or lower), and content with Visbility rank 10 will appear somewhere below that.
  1. Link url is the full "web address" (including protocol http or https) of linked content. For example, if I were making a link to Google, the Link url would be "".
  2. File is the file to be uploaded.
  3. File type is the extension of the file to be uploaded. You can ignore this field.
