Quick Add Content

Use the Quick Add feature to quickly add content to your Edline page. This feature streamlines the creation of certain kinds of documents such as links, news articles, and one-time calendar events, that most likely do not need the full range of document features and options Edline offers, such as visibility settings or multi-posting to other pages.

The Quick Add icon (File:en-us/Edline/030_Teacher/050_My_Class_Page_Content/010_Quick_Add_Content/quickaddicon.jpg) will be available in several boxes of the Edline page, including the Calendar, News, Links, and Contents sections. Unlike the Add Item (File:en-us/Edline/030_Teacher/050_My_Class_Page_Content/010_Quick_Add_Content/addicon.jpg) icon which displays a dialog for you to enter or select your information, the Quick Add icon does not pop-up an additional dialog. Instead, a data-entry section displays directly on the page allowing you to type your title and content.

As you type the content, three icons will appear allowing you to save (File:en-us/Edline/030_Teacher/050_My_Class_Page_Content/010_Quick_Add_Content/save-checkmark.jpg), change (File:en-us/Edline/030_Teacher/050_My_Class_Page_Content/010_Quick_Add_Content/editinlisticon.jpg), or delete (File:en-us/Edline/030_Teacher/050_My_Class_Page_Content/010_Quick_Add_Content/deleteicon2.jpg) the information. If you need access to the Create Document page to change the item’s visibility, calendar reoccurrence, or to multi-post the content to other pages in Edline, click the Edit Quick Item (File:en-us/Edline/030_Teacher/050_My_Class_Page_Content/010_Quick_Add_Content/editinlisticon.jpg) icon. You will be able to continue adding the item in the Create Document page.
