- Select the folder that you would like to list on the page.
- Choose how you would like to be ordered. By Default it is Alphabetical. Other options are Reverse Alphabetical, Upload Date or Reverse Upload Date.
- After you've configured your options, click the green Create button
- Your File List widget will show up on the page.
- Make sure to click the Save --> Publish options just as you would when you're editing pages.
Recommendation - If you are using the File List Widget in conjunction with the Rows widget, we recommend not using anything smaller than either the 1/4 x 3/4 or the 3/4 x 1/4 structures. This allows for correct spacing and a cleaner look for the File List widget.
Campus Suite Tip - As you upload files to a directory consider how they will be displayed. This widget displays files in order from symbol to number then to alphabetical. If you want the files to be displayed in a specific order you want to consider renaming them as you upload them. For example if you have "August6_2016_BOE_Meeting", "September12_2016_BOE_Meeting" and "December5_2016_BOE_Meeting". To get them to list in a correct order you might consider renaming them to "08_06_2016_BOE_Meeting", "09_12_2016_BOE_Meeting" and "12_05_2016_BOE_Meeting". This will display the files in a correct numerical order.
