How to Create your First Workbook in Contribute Cloud?
Hello and welcome to this edition of #AskAndi
In today’s blog what we’re going to look at is how we’re going to create our first workbook in the Contribute Cloud Software.
When you first login, you taken to the Dashboard. To create a new workbook, in the top righthand corner of the screen, next to the “logout” button is a “Create New Workbook” button.
Click on the create a new workbook button.
You then need to give your workbook a name, choose a subject and enter a description.
When you click “Create Workbook” you will be taken to the main workbook creation page. It is from this screen that you will add the content into your workbook to create slides.
You will see on the left hand side of the page at the bottom of the screen, links to Cloud Storage Drives, Your Local Machine as well as YouTube. You don’t need to use all of them, just whichever one is your drive of choice. Click on the drive of Choice. In the example below we will use Dropbox. You will need to authorize Contribute Cloud to access your Drive, then you will see the list of files.
Select the files that you want to include in your workbook and press the “Choose” button when you are done. You will see that your files automatically populate into slides at the bottom of the screen.
You can re-order the slides by simply dragging on them. Click on the slide and you will be shown a full screen preview of your slide in the editor.
To add a blank whiteboard page to your workbook, you click on the “+” icon.
You can delete any slide by clicking on the “X” in the top right of the slide preview. There is a confirmation of the delete before the slide is removed.
When you have finished your workbook, click on the “save” icon in the bottom right of the screen to save your workbook to the Cloud.
(Left to right, Save, Invite Participants, Play Workbook)
