How to publish documents/digital publications
It's not essential to have your own library in order to publish a digital publication/document; you'll simply need to provide your email address and fill in a captcha. However, signing up for a library is free and you get loads more features and benefits, so it's well worth it and will only take a minute.
Please note: If you wish to make your digital publications private, you will need your own library, as the privacy settings are only available to change if you are registered. All publications created and not made private will be available to view in the public YUDUfree Library.
Click the large 'Publish' button on the navigation bar at the top of the screen. This will take you to the Publish page.
On this page, choose the 'Document' button from the options available, which will take you to the Document Upload page.
Click 'Browse', choose the file that you wish to turn into a digital publication (this can be a PDF, Word(.doc), Powerpoint(.ppt), Excel or their OpenOffice equivalents), and click 'OK'.
Following the selection of the file you can now fill in the other details relating to your content including the title, publication type, privacy level and more. YUDU recommend that you fill in as much information as possible for the most exposure of your content should you wish to market it on the YUDU Store (these details can be changed following the upload of your publication).
When you are happy with the details, simply hit Publish! at the bottom of the screen and the file will upload to YUDU with a green confirmation bar such as the above. When the publication has completed successfully you will be taken to the following screen:
