Keeping Uploaded Content in a Folder

1. If you have multiple files to upload and you want them to be stored in a folder, create the folder first by clicking the Create Folder button (to the right of the Upload button).
2. Then open the folder you created by clicking on its title.
3. Once you've opened the folder, click the Upload button near the top of the screen.
4. Select multiple files or entire folders from your computer and drag them into the attachment box. The individual files will be displayed below for you to review before you click Submit.

Overwriting Existing Content

If you want to overwrite files (maintaining the link to the file while updating it to a newer version), be sure to check the box beneath the attachment box: "If selected, the system automatically overwrites the existing file with the same name."
