Blink comes built-in with a way to create content in the Hub called Pages, removing the need to upload Word documents or PDF files. Blink Administrators can create Pages in the Hub section of the Admin Dashboard.
Create a new Page
Open the Blink Admin Dashboard and navigate to the Hub section. On the Hub content page, under Add Content, select Page.
This opens the Page Editor. Before you can Publish a Page you need to specify a title, some content and an audience you would like to share your new Page with. This is also a good time to set a Featured Image for your Page and share it to the Feed to increase visibility.
Adding content to a Page
Besides text, you can add the following types of content to a Page:
- Links (to external URLs or to items in the Hub)
- Videos (YouTube/Vimeo)
You can add attachments to the Page simply by clicking the attachment button in the toolbar and selecting one or more files from your computer, or by dragging and dropping files from your desktop onto the Page Editor. After dragging multiple files, a side window will open where you can rename the files before uploading them to the Page.
Every attachment will be added on a new line in the editor. If you prefer, you can remove the empty lines in between the attachments to make them appear in a row.
Links will automatically be detected in your text and highlighted as a link. Alternatively, you can select any piece of text and click the link button to add a link to the selection.
You can either link to a URL or a Hub Item. Linking to a Hub Item allows you to link to other Pages, add a quick way to open a Micro-App, or link to an attachment in the Hub.
Note: Make sure to only link to Hub items in your Page that the audience of the Page will have access to, otherwise they will be presented with an error message if they try to open the Hub item inside the Page.
Previewing a Page
At any given time, you can preview your Page to check what it will look like for Mobile and Web/Desktop users. Simply click 'Preview' and use the Mobile/Desktop icons to toggle the preview mode between Mobile and Web/Desktop.
When you're happy with the content and layout of your Page click 'Publish' to make it available to everyone in the audience that you selected. When someone views the Page in their Hub they will always receive the Page with the latest changes that were published.
