Sending/"pushing" files to File download

  • You can export content such as attached files in forum posts to File download.
  • Click the plus icon next to the file - in this instance, a pdf document:
  • On the next screen, choose the portfolio to export to. (If File download is the only one, you will only have that option!)
  • Click "Next" and then choose the file format you wish to export as. (Which formats you are offered depends on the type of file you wish to download)
