How to upload files from your computer using OmniUpdate

First - Save and NAME your documents properly

  • Save documents (e.g., .docx, .xlsx, .ppt) as PDF files. The PDF format allows users without specialized applications to view documents. This is an important accessibility issue!
  • Name files without any spaces or punctuation. It's easiest to do this BEFORE uploading.
  • Try to standardize names, i.e., use a 6 digit date, use only lowercase:

For example:
agenda010111.pdf            not AGENDA January  11 budget Meeting.pdf
v2minutes040108.pdf       not 2- min – april 1 8.pdf

To upload a file, click on 'expand splitscreen' to see the main list of web pages:

Where to upload your files & upload process 

Do not upload documents or images into your main site as it makes the site difficult to organize and find files. Upload documents to the 'docs' or 'pdfs' folder, or a folder by year (ie '1314'). You can create a 'docs' or 'pdfs' folder if you don't already have one in your directory. Images can be uploaded to an images folder, if present (if not, use the assets folder).

Click on the breadcrumbs to move through the file structure, then click to open the folder where you want to upload - you must 'be in' the folder that you want your files to end up in when you start the upload process:
