Posting a document to your website is a two step process:

  1. Upload a document - getting the document from your computer to your documents folder in Cascade
  2. Post a document - creating a hyperlink for people to download the document

Other common document tasks:

Some common document types are:

  • .doc
  • .pdf
  • .ppt
  • .xls

The Document wizard allows you to upload a file such as a PDF (.pdf), or Word (.doc), and add it to the documents folder in Cascade.
