How to upload files from your computer using OmniUpdate

Images can be saved as .jpg, .gif, or .png. Learn more about preparing images for the web.

Save all your documents (e.g., .docx, .xlsx, .ppt) as PDF files

  • Use the PDF format so that all users can view documents.
  • Name files without any spaces.
  • Try to standardize names and use 'EVERGREEN' naming, so that you can keep uploading new versions of the document without renaming and breaking links. 

For example:
USE 'agendaMay.pdf'            NOT 'agenda May - version 2 May 27 2014.pdf'

USE 'strategic_plan.pdf'        NOT 'Strategic Plan for planning committee revised .pdf'
