Download component

The download component makes files, images, and other assets available for download to your site users. It's helpful for those who need to post meeting minutes, spreadsheet files, PDFs, or other items that need to be downloaded and shared. 

While in the Edit mode, click and drag the Download component to the place on the page where the file would be accessible. 

If the item that you want to make available for download is in the asset library, click on the Assets tab from the left window and click and drag the item to the component box on the page. 

You can also click on the wrench icon to open the properties of the Download component. Click Upload File to navigate to where the item you wish to make available is located. You can also drag the item onto the Upload File button.
