Adding Documents

Accessible Documents

A document must be accessible before it is added to Cascade and to your website. Many users are transitioning from using PDFs to other formats.

Documents are stored in the CMS under "_files/documents" according to department.

Documents are uploaded to _files/documents/departmentName/folder/documentname.


To upload a new document

  • Highlight the folder where you want to add the document (under _/files/documents/departmentname/etc).Screen shot of the menu structure showing where to click to upload a new document: New, then Files, Images, Folders, then Document.
