How to add an article to the resource library

Rob Midson -

Select Resources under the communicate section on the left hand navigation bar

  • This will take you to your Resource Library where you can manage the articles posted to the students at your university
  • Sort by Status of the article: Drafting or Published
  • Sort by the author of the article to view which staff members have posted which articles
  • Bulk Actions on All Results
    • This option will allow you to send a mass email to students about multiple articles

To create a new article:

  1. Click New Article in the upper right hand corner
  2. Basics: This step at the bottom of the screen will allow you to enter basic details about the article
    • Note: Pinned order will reorder the way the articles are displayed in the resource library​​
  3. Content: You can copy and paste content from a document you have created outside of Handshake in the editor
    • Important note: If you're looking to upload a file for your resource/article, you can skip this step, or add any extra information you want to about the attachment. We'll add the actual attachment after we build the article - look for the section "Adding a file/attachment to your article" later in this article.
  4. Requirements: You can target items in the resource library to certain groups of students. You can choose who will see this article based on school year, GPA, major, colleges and labels that you have added at your institution. Feel free to leave this blank for an unrestricted article!
  5. Click Create when you are ready to create this article, make sure in the basics section you have changed the status to Published if you would like this to be visible to students
