How to upload a Hang File item

These steps outline how to upload a hang file item.

Hang file items are all loaded into a single directory structure, but can appear in 1 to 3 places.  The locations are:

1) What's New area on the front page

2) Currently Active Hang file Items on the front  page

3Commissioner's Corner

Each hang file item has a start and stop date. Then showing in the What's New or Currently Active Hang Files ares, they will not display until the start date, and will automatically disappear after the ending date.

Hang file items always appear in the Online Hang Files page, no matter what the start or stop date.

All hang files should be PDF files. This makes it universally available to all volunteers and they do not need to rely on Excel, Office, etc to display the contents. If not feasible to use PDF, you can upload the original, but please make a not in the title that it is in xxxx format (Word, Excel etc).

To upload a hang file item, do the following steps:

  1. Login as an admin to the web site
  2. Under the File Maintenance menu, select Hang Files
  3. Click on "Insert Hang File"
  4. Enter a description of the hang file item. This description shows up in the sections shown above.
  5. For a hang file that needs to go to the Commissioner Corner, start and stop dates are not needed. For other sections, start and stop dates are required, otherwise the hang files does not show up in the lists.
  6. Check the appropriate sections:
  • Include in What's New

  • Include in Training Section

  • Include in Commissioner Corner

  • Include in Hang Files

  1. Click on the Choose File button
  2. Navigate to the location on your computer where the file is located.
  3. Select the file name and click Open
  4. When everything is correct, click Insert to upload the file
  5. Your file should be immediately visible in the locations you selected
