A download is a file you want to make available to your users. It might be a PDF manual or brochure, a software application or driver.
Each download consists of a single file, plus a rich-text description which you can create and edit as you would a Knowledgebase article.
If you use Deskpro Cloud, the file size limit is 10MB. On Deskpro On-Premise, the limit depends on your server configuration.
You can make a new download using the blue + button in the top toolbar of the Agent interface.
The New Download editor will open up in the content pane.
To select the file, you can either:
- click Choose Files and upload a file from your computer
- click the Hotlink an existing file link and enter a URL (web address) for the file
* you must enter the full URL e.g. `http://www.example.com/files/manual.pdf` * you can optionally specify the file size to display
Once you’ve selected a file, you can use the File Name field to change the filename. You can use this to pick a name that is more meaningful to users. For example, you might have saved your download file as
Gyr Manual-updated _FINAL_ davehasapproved.pdf, but a better user-facing filename would be
Click Create Download to save your download. It will only be viewable by users if you set the status to Published first.
