To upload an attachment, including image files, users need the following permission for their assigned Role:
Upload a file
You can upload files when creating all post types: Discussions, Questions, Ideas, Polls, and Events.
- Place your mouse cursor where you'd like the file to be located in the post.
- Click the Upload File icon at the bottom left.
- This prompts your browser's file explorer to open. Locate and insert the file you'd like to upload.
✔️ TIP: You can also simply drag and drop a file directly from your computer to the Rich Editor. Note that when you drag and drop an image file, it will embed directly in the editor instead of uploading as an attachment (refer to the Example upload section below for an example of this).
In the example below, we've uploaded the same image file in two ways: once as an attachment via the Upload File method, and once as a direct embed via the drag-and-drop method.
To delete a file you've uploaded:
- Click to select the file in the editor.
- Click the trashcan icon.
