Upload Documents

Before uploading the document, you may want to check if you wish to upload it into the room library or your personal desk. This is just to keep the library more organised for you when you are looking for the files later.

If you do not have permission to "Create a new tab" in the room, you will see a message that only the room host can open new tabs. You will not be able to see a '+' icon after tapping the menu button. You can only open new tabs in your desk. Click the desk icon to upload documents into your desk instead.

Tap the nine square menu button at the top left of the screen.

Tap the '+' icon at the bottom of the screen to open a new tab.

Select PDF/Image under New in the pop-up window that appears.

Tap  Select files to open the system file explorer to select a file. 

Note that the supported file types for upload are .png, .jpg, .pdf and .gif. Microsoft office files e.g. Word documents, Powerpoint slides, Excel sheets (.doc, .ppt, .excel etc.) are not supported. You can first convert them into PDF files before uploading.

Tap  Upload to upload the files into the library. Then tap Done.
