Content Collection

1. Introduction

When you upload a file to MyBeckett, it is stored in an area called the Content Collection. This guide provides information for staff about uploading, editing, updating and organising files in this area.

Important: If you are planning to upload HTML files with linked content (e.g. images or CSS files), we recommend that you organise these files using folders. This will make it easier for you to manage permission settings for the linked files.

2. Upload files to MyBeckett's Content Collection

If you have a lot of files to upload, or a few files to upload regularly, you can do this more easily using WebDAV. If it's just one or two files:
a. In MyBeckett, click the Files tab
Files Tab MyBeckett

b. At the top left (just under the tabs) click Content Collection.
