Uploading Files to the Repository

Uploading Files to the Repository


Files can be uploaded to the repository from either the My private files link or from the ELIS Files link in a course. To upload files using the My private files link go to the Navigation block > My profile > My private files.

The "default file browsing location" setting determines where the file system opens. To edit the setting go to the Administration block > Site Administration > Plugins > Repositories > ELIS Files > Default file browsing location. In this example it is set to ELIS User Files so when a user opens the files interface they will see their personal repository space. To move to different repository spaces use the "Jump to..." menu.

ELIS files

To upload files use the "Add" button to open the file picker window or drag and drop files from your desktop onto the repository space.

ELIS files

Using the "Add" button opens the file picker where you can upload a new file. Files can also be moved/copied from another repository space by going to the ELIS Files link in the file picker menu on the left hand side of the page.

Files can also be uploaded to the repository via the ELIS Files link in a course. Go to a course home page then go to the Administration block > Course Administration > ELIS Files.

The ELIS Files link in a course is only visible if the user has the View course level content permission allowed (repository/elis_files:viewcoursecontent). This permission is separate from the main group of ELIS permissions, it is in a section below the course permissions.
