To post a document for review or co-authoring:

  1. From the discussion forum, click on the Add toolbar item.
  2. Choose Add Document from the menu.

    Forum displays the "Add a file to..." form.

  3. In the Title text box, specify a descriptive title for the document (such as "Widget Project Plan").
  4. In the Abstract text box, enter any information that you want users to know about the document. Users can read this information when they view the document entry.

    For more information about using this part of the form, click on the Format text link that follows.

  5. Locate the "Upload a file from your local computer" text box, approximately halfway down the page.
  6. To the right of the text box, click Browse.

    Your system displays a standard window used to select files.

  7. Locate the file that you want to upload, and select the file.

    The filename appears in the "Upload a file from your local computer" text box.

  8. The remaining items on the "Add a file to..." form are optional. If you are new to using Forum, you may want to leave them blank for now.
  9. Click OK.

    The title that you entered in the Title text box now appears as a hyperlinked title in the list of entries. When someone clicks on that title, they can access the file that you just uploaded.
