How to Make a Flier Available

We're assuming  that there is a post somewhere on the website that is tagged with the label "Fliers" and which includes a link to our "Fliers" folder at Google Docs.

We'll also assume that somewhere on your computer you have a flier, stored as a .pdf file, that you want to make available to people for distributing.  After you upload your flyer, it will be available from the afore-mentioned post tagged with "Fliers".

To upload your flier:
  1. Log into http://docs.google.com using the contracola  google account.
  2. Click on the "Upload" button (upper left-hand side of the page).
  3. Select one or more files on your computer, using the "Select files to upload" link.
  4. Select the publicly viewable "Fliers" folder: click on the "No folder" button, then select "Fliers".
  5. Make the fliers themselves public: click on the "Private" button, then select "Public on the Web".
  6. Click the "Start Upload" button.
If you need a link to the newly-uploaded file, do this:
  1. When the upload is complete, click on the "Back to Google Docs" link.
  2. Navigate to your newly-uploaded file, right-click on the file name, move your mouse to "Share", then to "Get the link to Share".
