Working with Top Stories in the Hub

Often corporate users want to share files with others (Corporate/Regional/Franchise users) to be able to post in a place to grab the most attention. The Hub module is a repository where users can upload whatever files they would like to share with others.  Corporate admin users have the ability to post items such as a downloadable Top Story within the Hub module. 

The biggest advantage of using this feature is that you can easily have your entire staff download a file without going through finding it in the Library of the Hub module.

In order for your top story to include for example a pdf document, you first need to upload your file into Library section of the Hub module.

There are quick steps on how to upload your file:

Go to the Admin > The Hub section > and click on Library.6-16-2022_10-52-32_AM.pngYou can create a new folder and have it accessible to Corporate Admin only. Click Add Folder.
