All of the “File” pages work the same, so I will use the National Specialty Files as an example. If you see something different which you do not understand, contact me.
To add or replace a file:
Use the pull down box on the top left to select your directory. It will be blank at first.
Use the pull down menu to choose the main directory, in this case NS.
If you wish to put your file in a subdirectory, for example NS2020, use the down arrow again.
Next click on the “Add Files” button to the right side. Select files from your computer in the normal manner.
When you have selected your file or files they will show on your screen:
Click on File Up to upload the files. Note that the files will replace any already in the directory with the same name.
The files will not show on the list below until you refresh the directory. You can do that by selecting the directory in the Viewing Files instruction below.
Your directory listing will start out at the base for the files you are working on, for example NS for National Specialty.
The plus sign will add a directory. DO NOT click on it thinking to add files.
The “dir” to the left indicates a directory. Click on the name (e.g. NS2020) to navigate to it. You can rename directories or delete entire directories on the right side. Deletion is suggested only if you have accidentally added it by clicking on the plus.
The file type will show at the left of the line. In this we see another subdirectory for “LOGOS WORK” plus a Word Docx file and a PDF of the same file. Clicking on a DOCX file will download it to your computer. Clicking on a PDF will open it in a lightbox.
Hover over the image for controls. The top three controls from left to right are rotate, download, and print. The three to the right inside the box adjust the zoom level and page size. The controls at the bottom page through images, go to full screen, download, and the X on the bottom right closes the image.
If you wish to copy the address of the pdf in order to paste it into another place, such as the forum, right click on the file name.
You can choose to open it in a new tab, or to copy the link. The link will include the instructions to make it a lightbox (seen by opening in a new tab).
To open it without the lightbox feature chop off everything after the .pdf.

In the case of the motion above discussion dates are the 19th, 20th, and 21st so voting will start the morning of the 22nd. There are three days for voting: then 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, so the 24th will be the “Voting End Date”.
Click “Submit” when finished with the entry.
The next job is to turn on the motion discussion period (red button) and motion voting period (green button).

The Starting date will be the current date.
The Ending will be the day that you entered as Voting Start date on the motion.
Scroll back to the top of the page and click on the Update button.
Close the tab when done and you will be ready to set the Green Voting button.
This screen will read “Show Current Motion Vote Form” at the top.
You will enter your Motion Voting Start date which will match your end date on the previous page. For the Ending date you will use 5 a.m. on the next day after the voting close date. This will allow for 72 hours or three full days of voting: in this case from 5 a.m. (8 a.m. Eastern) on the 22nd, all of the 23rd, all of the 24th, and to 5 a.m. (8 a.m. Eastern) on the 25th.

You will notice that each block has a hidden Section # which matches the number on the agenda, For proper sorting, make sure that numbers under 10 contain the leading zero (“0”).
The Heading box will be labeled “00” to appear before “01”.
Scroll down through the box, editing as needed.
When complete, click on the “Update” button. “Cancel” or the “X” at the top will restore the box unchanged.
