Learn@UW/D2L - Managing and Referencing the Shared Files Area

This document is for Site Administrators only.

The 'shared files' area in an organization can contain files that can be referenced from the organization's courses.

Managing Shared Files

In order to manage the shared files area, you must have permissions set at the organization level under "Manage Files" in "Roles and Permissions". You may then manage shared files on the organization page in "Shared Files" in the "Organization Related" section of the "My Admin Tools" widget". You can create any directory structure you wish on the 'Organization Shared Files' directory by adding folders.

Referencing Shared Files

In order to reference a file in the shared area, you must have permission to "see the file listing" at the organization level. This will allow you to create Content topics from files in the shared area.
