You will be presented with a list of files which you can click on to view. The files can be sorted by file, description, size or date by clicking on the links in the title bar.
To send a link to a file in the files area use the format https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/files/yourgroupname/filename e.g. https//www.jiscmail.ac.uk/files/jiscmail-newsletter/logo.gif. Please note that if the group is public anyone will be able to view the file even if they are not a subscriber of that group. If the group is private only subscribers can view the files.

Only the group owner can add files to the files area.
To add files:
Select which file or directory you wish to delete.
Under the 'Delete file / directory' section, click to check the 'Confirm Delete' tick box and click on the 'Delete' button.
Select which file or directory you wish to rename.
Under the 'Rename file / directory' section, type the new name of the files and click on the 'Rename' button.
Select which file you wish you move.
Under the 'Move file' section, select the directory from the drop down box and click on the 'Move' button.
Caution: will automatically overwrite if file exists in the destination directory.
The listing of files starts with a link named 'Top' which will always take you back to the main ("/") directory. File information is presented after the file name and is composed of the description ("-" if no description available), the size (B = bytes, KB = kilobytes, MB = megabytes) and the date.
To download a file click on the file and you will be presented with a dialog box to open or save the file. When you click on a subdirectory a listing of files in that subdirectory will be displayed and the current directory will show the new path (eg: "/images" would indicate you are viewing an images subfolder off the top directory).
To create a directory:
Under the 'Create directory' section, type the name of your new directory and click on the 'Create' button.
