Let’s cover some basic points before we get into how you upload and access files within your Event Wizard® account.
For the purpose of this post let’s say you had a .pdf you wanted accessible on your registration site for download, even though the process for uploading your files will be the same for any allowable file type. The first thing you’ll do is go to the My Files section of your account and click Upload.
Search for the .pdf on your local hard drive and upload. Once the file is uploaded it is now permanently stored within your My Files until you delete it.
NOTE: You can also drag and drop files from your computer into your browser window to upload them. Drag and drop is supported by all modern web browsers, (sorry Internet Explorer 8 users!) and can be used in the same way you would drag and drop files from folder to folder on your computer.
To access your newly uploaded .pdf you have two options:
Option 1 – Your .pdf will be at the top of your My Files list, this is the case for any new file you add. When you click on the name of the file it will open in a browser tab.
Copy and paste the URL of the file when it opens and navigate into the events task list that you’re working on. Choose the area you would like the agenda to be available in, for instance the top of the registration form. Once you’ve opened the registration page editor you can simply paste the URL into the editor or hyperlink an image or text.
Click OK and be sure to save the changes when you’re done.
Option 2 – For this method you do not have to copy and paste the files URL after uploading it. Simply navigate to the registration pages editor and highlight the text or image as you did above, except this time when you click the hyperlink icon and the box appears, you will choose ‘Browse Server’. This will open your My Files bank so you can choose from any file you’ve uploaded.
Click OK, save the changes are you’re done! This same method should be used when accessing any photos or logos, except you will click the picture icon in the editor instead of the hyperlink icon.
Use the My Files section in your account to store any file types you may want to embed or link to from your registration site.
