Upload a New Version of an Uploaded Document

Uploading new versions of documents that have already been uploaded into CommonSpot is a quick and efficient way to keep clutter on the site to a minimum, and relieve the content contributor of tracking down each and every place that document is linked (e.g., what if some other site links to your document?) Here are the steps for uploading a revision:

  1. From the management interface for your site (http://author.oit.ohio.edu/sitename/manage), use the CommonSpot Entrance Tab to navigate to My CommonSpot.

  5. Click the 'Browse' button to locate to the new version of the document on your computer. Select the new version, then click 'Save' near the bottom of the window.
