Site Extras - Protected Files

This site extra allows you to add password protected files to your site.

  1. Click on “Protected Files” under the Site Extras panel on the left-hand side of the screen.
  2. Click the blue “New Folder” button.
  3. Type the title of the folder and select who will be able to view the folder. Custom Users creates a new username and password that will allow access. Selected Novell will allow only the specific users you select to view the files. Novell usernames are the prefix before the @gvsu.edu for faculty and the prefix before @mail.gvsu.edu for students.
  4. To add files to the folder, click the green plus sign next to the folder name.
  5. Make sure the correct folder you want this file to go into is selected from the drop-down menu. Then type in a title and click “Browse…” to navigate to the file you want to upload. Add a description if you want and then click the blue “Submit” button.
  6. To go to the login where you can see the files, click the “Preview” link to the right of the page title “Protected Files.” If you want to put a link to this page on your site, copy the URL when it loads and put it into your site content or navigation.
