In addition to uploading Files, Links, and Videos to their partner Library, Users can also create Article Documents. Article Documents allow you to add rich text content with images and videos to the Library without having to create a separate downloadable document. Articles can also serve as a fantastic alternative to using custom pages to showcase information in a visually appealing manner, as they provide the added benefits of view tracking and keeps your portal's left navigation menu clutter-free.
