How to Add a File to your App's 'Resources'

Each App built in iCaddy Apps has its own databank, known as 'In-App Resources' (or the 'Resource Manager') where all the images and files for each App are stored.  The following tutorial describes how to upload a file (e.g. an image file) into the App's 'Resources'.

Step 1

From the App's 'Dashboard' screen, select 'IN-APP RESOURCES'.  The App's 'Resource Files' will open in a pop-up window (i.e. the RESOURCE MANAGER).

Note:  You can also access 'CLOUD RESOURCES' from the App's 'Dashboard'.  Although this option exists, we do not recommend that you store any of your App's 'Resource Files' in 'CLOUD RESOURCES', as this will require Wi-Fi internet connectivity throughout the entire golf course for the App to operate effectively. Place all your App's 'Resource Files' in 'IN-APP RESOURCES'.

Step 2


Step 3

Locate the required image from your files (stored locally on your computer).  It is important to remember that file names to be uploaded into the 'In-App Resources' must have NO SPACES and only contain letters, numbers and underscores (e.g. Example_File_Name_1).

Note:You can upload images, video and audio files via this method

We Recomend the Following File Types

Images PNG or JPG

Audio and Video Files MP3 (audio) MP4 (video)

Step 4

Select the file you want to upload, then click 'Choose' (or 'Open', depending on your operating system).

Step 5

Wait for the file to upload.  You will then return to the 'RESOURCE MANAGER' window.

Step 6

Once the file is listed, it has been added to the 'In-App Resources' for your App.  You may need to scroll down the list to locate a recently uploaded file.

Click on the file to check the file has uploaded correctly.  A preview of the selected file will appear on the left-hand side.  To assist searching, you can filter the file list to display image files only, by selecting the 'Image Button' (located on the top row of the 'RESOURCE MANAGER').

If the file has been uploaded correctly, click 'CLOSE' to return to 'EDIT PAGES'.

Note:  The 'CHOOSE' button (shown above) does not appear in the 'RESOURCE MANAGER' after uploading a file in this manner - this is because you have accessed the 'RESOURCE MANAGER' directly (either from the App's 'Dashboard' or 'EDIT PAGES' screen) and are not inserting a specific 'Resource' into a particular 'Element' in your App.  App 'Elements' are discussed in separate Help pages.  If you have accessed the 'RESOURCE MANAGER' when inserting a file (e.g. an image file) into an 'Element' in your App, the 'CHOOSE' button appears so you can upload (and insert) the selected file (as depicted above).

For more information on App 'Elements' go to Before You Begin.  For more information on adding files or image to the 'RESOURCE MANAGER' as part of the 'Element' editing process, go to How to Add Your Club's Logo to a Page in Your App.
