Upload Files

You can easily add files, such as Microsoft® Word®, PowerPoint®, and PDF® documents, by uploading the content to your website.

Do not choose File to import a video. Instead, see the Adding a Video topic for more details.
If you add an image file to Edline via the File import method, the image will be added at its “raw” form and not as a thumbnail as in the Picture method.
