Publishing Content Directly to a SharePoint Library

In this article we'll show you how to publish content created with iSpring products directly to a SharePoint Library. When published, you can also insert iSpring-generated content into SharePoint pages.

Note: Directions in this article are written for users of SharePoint 2010. Older versions of SharePoint may require different steps.

I love iSpring because it is user friendly, and allows someone as myself with no coding experience, to create training material with ease and with a professional look.

Mapping a SharePoint Library as a Network Drive

First, you will need to map a SharePoint library with shared documents in your computer as a network drive.

Note: You may need assistance from your SharePoint administrator to do so. Only Designers are allowed to upload Flash and HTML5 files to SharePoint 2010. You may need to ask your system administrator to grant these permissions. The rest is easy.

SharePoint Permissions

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Click Computer to open the list of hard disk drives.

    Windows Explorer

  3. Click Map network drive.

    Map Network Drive

  4. In the Drive list, choose any available drive letter.
  5. In the Folder box, type the full path to the SharePoint Library.
    e.g. //SharePoint server name/shared_documents_library_name
    http://SharePoint_server_web_address/shared_documents_library_name
  6. To connect every time you log on to your computer, select the Reconnect at logon check box.
  7. Click Finish.

Your computer is now connectedto a SharePoint Library.
