How do I administer the Hub?
This part of the article explains to admins how to upload links, categorize them, and manage the Hub for users. If you are looking for instructions on how to use the Hub as a non-admin, see our user-focused article instead.
Add a resource
To add a resource to the Hub, click the 'Add resource' button. A form will appear on the screen where you can add your resource, a description, and other categorizing information that will make it helpful for users to find it while they work.
Categorize the resource
Let's go through each part of the form to ensure that users will be able to understand and find the item in the Hub. See the example images for reference.
Enter a name that is descriptive, easy to understand, and uses likely search keywords. For example, if you are uploading a basic new user document that includes instructions for how to get started in Zappi, you might name the resource, "New user guide."
Enter a description that goes into more detail than the name. Like names, descriptions are also searchable by the user, so here you can include more common keywords. For our example, the description will be, "New users start here - how to get started with Zappi, FAQs, and who to contact for help."
This is the actual link where the permanent resource is stored. This might be an internal file share link or similar. If the link is not a public URL, make sure before including it that its sharing permissions are set as broadly as users will need. Alternatively, if a password will be needed to access the link once opened, include it in the item's description.
In some instances, the resource you are adding will only be relevant to one or a few specific products that users have available. Here you can tag any and all products that apply directly to your entry. This is important as users can filter the Hub by each product tag for quicker navigation. Since our example is a general guide, none of the products will be selected.
If instead the guide was how to get started with Concept Test and ScreenIt, you'd select 'Zappi Concept Test' and 'Zappi ScreenIt' in the list.
Click 'Submit' at the bottom of the page to finalize your addition. You will now be able to see your addition to the Hub and users will have access to it immediately. If you opted for an Updates announcement, it will also be published immediately.
Editing & deleting resources
If you need to edit an existing resource for any reason, simply select the three-dot menu in its entry and select 'Edit.' This will take you to the same form as before where you can make any changes you'd like.
If you need to delete a resource, select 'Delete' in that same menu. A screen will appear asking you to confirm before deleting permanently. Deleting cannot be undone once confirmed.
What if I have more questions or don't know what to add?
Your Customer Success Manager will be happy to help answer any questions or consult on what would be best to include in your organization's Hub.
