How do I add a link to a file without using a snippet?
The File Attachment snippet is the easiest way to add links to files for people to download from your website. But snippets are only available on website pages, not in registration forms, communications, news, or other team management areas.
You can add file download links to any available text editor field throughout the site using the following steps:
➧ Upload Your File
If your file is not already online, you will need to upload it to your team site.
From your "Welcome..." menu, go to Manage Team > Settings > Uploaded Files.
Click the Add File button, click Choose File to select a file from your local drive, and click Save.
➧ Copy Your File Location
While still on your Uploaded Files page, right-click, Control-click (PC) or Command-click (Mac) on your uploaded file to get a contextual menu.
Select Copy Link to copy the location of the file to your clipboard.
➧ Add Your File to a Text Area Snippet
To add this link to a Text Area snippet, go to the web page you are editing, and select Edit Page Content from the menu selection (top right).
Click +Add Snippet, drag over a new Text Area snippet (or edit an existing snippet).
Type and select the text you would like to be linked, and click the Link button and select Insert Link from the menu.
Paste the link in the URL field, and then click Insert to save it.
The text in your snippet is now linked to the file you uploaded. You can edit the text and link by selecting the text, and then selecting "Edit Link" from the link button.
