Using gateways

Gateways are institutional spaces that can be used to store and publish different assets to and for appropriate groups. To publish to a gateway, you need to have appropriate publishing rights. Gateway owners can set a range of permissions including the abilities to view, publish, copy, comment or give feedback on published assets.

Publishing to a gateway

To publish an asset, e.g. resource, file, proforma etc. to a gateway, do the following:

  1. Login to PebblePad using your normal Novell user name and password.
  2. Either upload a new file, Upload file, or select a file from the asset store.
  3. From the asset store panel, select file then the Send to option and finally the appropriate gateway.
