Using the Manual Upload



Manual Upload allows you to add documents or articles manually into a web page or sent to a distribution channel of your choice. This functionality is for announcements that are not automatically released and must be decided on per item. 

1. Under "IRM Newsroom" select "Manual Upload" in the HQi menu.


2. Fill in the fields for "Title" and "Release Date". If you're uploading a PDF, select the "Choose File" button in the "Content File" section to upload the document. If it's an external link, put the URL in the "Link to external content" field. You can also add an image for the release by tapping the "Choose File" button in the "Featured Image" section.

On the settings for the announcement, you'll be able to determine the channels (tabs) through which it will be sent.

Website - you can select which pages on your website the announcement will be posted

Email - you may select which subscriber groups will receive the email for the announcement

Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter - make sure you have registered your social media accounts to IRM Newsroom to be able to select these options. For more information on how to set up these connections view the pages here:



Hit "Save" when you're done.


3. The uploaded file will now be on the "Pending" section where you can click on "Release" to send it out.


4. You'll then see a pop-up window, where you need to confirm its release by hitting the "Yes" button.
