Upload a document to the COMS server
Go to Configuration / Texts / Insert links & pictures / 1. Upload a document to the COMS server and use the upload button to upload any file to the COMS server.
Get the URL of the uploaded document
Once the document is uploaded, its URL will be printed at Configuration / Texts / Insert links & pictures / 2. List of uploaded documents. For example, if you uploaded a document titled
PrivacyStatement.docx to https://conference-service.com/myconf2019/, the URL of the uploaded file will be
https://conference-service.com/myconf2019/documents/PrivacyStatement.docx. Copy this URL.
Create a download link for the document
Locate and edit the text that will include the link. This can be done at Configuration / Texts / Edit any text. If you are using the HTML editor, locate the link button in the toolbar of the editor and use it to create a link to the URL you just copied. In addition to the URL, you will need to provide a text for the link, for instance,
Privacy statement. If you are using a simple text editor, you will need to use HTML tags to create the link.
Add a download link to an email
Go to Emails and locate the email template you want to use. Simply paste the URL you copied into the the body of the email. There is no need to add HTML tags.
