    Q: Link to Google doc
    How do I add a link to a Google doc?

    A: You can add a link to a Google doc on your website, such as for (1) a calendar of your workshops, (2) sign-up for art classes you are giving, etc.

    First, you'll need a Google account. You can create this at:
    https://www.google.com/accounts/

    Then, create your Google doc at:
    https://docs.google.com

    You can click 'Browse Template Gallery' to find the type of document you want to create. If you need more help on this, this page may help:

    Once you've created your Google doc, go to your doc and set 'Sharing' so that other people can view and/or edit the document, for example so they can sign up for classes. Just click 'Share' in the right-hand corner of the Google doc, and set your 'Sharing settings.'

    To add the link to your FASO Site, here are 2 options:

    2. Login to FASO CONTROL PANEL

    3. Click on the page (in left menu bar) where you want to add the link

    4. In the text box, add text that you'd like to place the link on, such as 'Click Here to Sign Up for a Workshop.'

    5. Select (highlight) the text

    6. Click the 'Insert/edit link' icon above the text box (looks like a chain link) - A new window pops up

    a. add the url (web address) to the 'Link URL' box

    B) OPTION 2 - DIRECT LINK FROM NAVIGATION BAR:
    Note: This method will pop visitors out of your FASO site when they click the link.

    First (again), copy the entire URL for your Google doc. It should start with:
    https://docs.google.com/

    Then:

    1. Login to your FASO CONTROL PANEL
    2. Click EDIT NAVIGATION BAR
    3. Click 'Advanced' (lower left)
    4. Paste the URL for your link into the LEFT column of an empty category
    5. Enter Override Text to RIGHT-hand column (what you would like the wording to be on your Navigation Bar)
    6. Click SUBMIT
