How to add a Files Block

The files block allows you to share resources with your buyer. Here's how to use it in your spaces and templates:

  1. To add a new block, click the blue "+" button in the sidebar and select the "Files Block".

  2. Next, click on "+ Add file" inside the block or in the sidebar.

  3. Now, you have two options to upload a file. Either enter a URL that can redirect to any website or file stored online, like a Google Docs file, or upload a local file from your computer by clicking on the "browse" button. The files block supports all common file formats, so you can upload any file type you want to share with your space visitors.

  4. In the next step, you have the option to change the preview name of the file that will be displayed to a space visitor. You can rename the file at any later point, by clicking on "rename" in the 3 dot menu.

  5. To complete the upload, click on "Upload to block".

Congrats! You have now successfully added a files block and uploaded a file to it. To upload more files, simply repeat step 2-5.

๐Ÿ’ก Tip: Hide files

You can hide files by switching the toggle in the sidebar. This allows you to include a long list of files in a template while only showing the ones relevant for your buyer in a specific space.
