Adding Documents to Topic Pages
Other than a few exceptions (i.e., FAQs, Q&A, Related Websites, Announcements, Meetings, and Tools), all documents in your site reside in the Documents library. When you add a new document, usually you will want it to appear on the topic page to which it relates. This tutorial explains the process for making that happen.
You must be logged in and have Leader or Moderator access rights to the community. Then navigate to the Documents folder (in left navigation) and click on the DAU Sponsored Documents banner. This will take you to the DAU Sponsored Documents library.
Click the ellipsis to the right of the document that you wish to relate to a specific page, then click the ellipsis on the pop-up window that opens and choose Edit Properties.
Click OK to check out the document.
At the top of the edit window, click the drop-down arrow for the Content Type field and choose the appropriate content type that starts with your site name (i.e., either the Document or Link to Document type).
When the edit window refreshes, scroll down and click the “tags” icon to the right of the ACC Topic field (Note: this field will not display until you’ve chosen one of the content types in the previous step).
Click the drop-down arrow next to your site’s name, choose the appropriate topic and click the Select button. You may choose more than one topic by repeating these steps. Once you’ve selected all the topics you wish, click OK.
Check the ACC Topic field to ensure all appropriate topics are listed, then click Save.
Now you must check in your document and approve the change that you made before it is visible to users and shows up on the chosen topic page. To do this, click on the ellipsis directly under the library banner and choose Pending Documents.
Click the ellipsis to the right of the document, then click the ellipsis on the pop-up window and choose Check In.
Add Comments for version control, if you wish, then click OK.
Then click both ellipses again and choose Approve/Reject.
Click the radio button by Approved, add a Comment, if desired, and click OK.
Once approved, your document disappears from the Pending Documents view. If you click All Documents, you will see it there once again.
It will also be displayed on the topic page to which it is related.
