Improved File Upload Experience
In order to clarify the difference between ‘upload’ and ‘link’, there will now only be one column called ‘Add from’.
The cloud options in this column can be enabled or disabled by the administrator. (Note that the option to upload a whole folder is only available in the File or Folder element.)
For OneDrive, you can still choose whether you want to upload or link to the file, but this choice has been moved to the upload dialog. By default we will link to the file, so that changes made on OneDrive are reflected in itslearning, but the user can choose ‘Upload a copy to itslearning’.
For Google, we will always link to the file to ensure that the file can be viewed with Google’s own document viewers. Note: in the assignment tool, it is now only possible to add a document from Google if the administrator has connected a G Suite domain.
Enabling File or Folder for all customers
To ensure that all customers get the new and improved file upload experience, we´re enabling “File and Folder” for all customers when adding course resources, replacing “File and Link”. New customers and customers who have already started to use “File or Folder” will not notice any changes, but for customers who have been using the “File or Link” element, the following changes will be made:
1. The File or Link element will be replaced with the “File or Folder” element on the course Add page
2. A new “Link” element will appear on the course Add page
Customers who have been using “File or Link” will now experience more consistency when uploading files in itslearning.
Please note: Customers who still use the old file element will now get two “File” elements on their add page.
