    1. Click the red square with a plus to upload a new file. This opens the Edit Image Details box.

    2. In Edit Image Details, you only have to fill out the title for a document. Note: This is information that is only displayed if you want to search for a document in the Media Library. It is not necessary to fill out a description, tags or credit.

    2. For Document type, select Google Document, Google Sheet or other.

  7. For Visible To, leave as Everyone for public information or change to Employees for documents that do not involve students and parents. Note: The use of the Student/Parent option is not common and should not be used because employees often need to see documents to help direct parents and/or students.

  8. For Department, begin to type a department name and the field will suggest names that you may select.

  9. Click Add at the top right corner when you are done or Add Next to create another document.
