Distributing documents online

It is possible to publish a variety of documents on a DNN portal such as Word documents, PDF files, internal documentation, and images. This is useful for a company intranet that wants to distribute documents to employees without the task of e-mailing everybody.

Getting ready

To follow this recipe you must have the Documents module installed on your DNN site. See the recipe in Chapter 1, Installing standard DNN modules for instructions.

Document distribution in DNN has four steps:

  1. The host user decides what document types will be allowed.
  2. The host user creates a list of file categories to keep the files organized.
  3. A user (like the Portal Administrator) uploads a document.
  4. Another user downloads the document.
