Add Resources

Created on:
Updated on:

Resources are the files you need to share with people, from meeting guides to short videos and more. You can add a resource to a single group, or share it across all groups in a group type. You can also make resources accessible by only leaders, or both leaders and members.

Note

Resources are listed in alphabetical order based on their name.

Supported File Types and Sizes

The types of files that you can add to a group include:

  • PDFs

  • Microsoft Word documents

  • Text files

  • Small image files

  • Small videos (50Mb or less)

The maximum allowed file size is 50Mb. For larger files, we recommend that you upload the file to a separate hosting platform and create a private link to the file that you can share from the Resources page.

  • You can host larger media files on a service like Dropbox, Google Drive, or Amazon S3.

  • Large video files can be posted on a video platform like Youtube or Vimeo.
