Custom content on portals

Use the 'Content' tab inside Hanover to add your own custom content to the participant and host portals. Things like checklists, external resources, etc.


Adding shared documents to Content πŸ“€

In this article, we will show you how you can use Content to link to shared documents so that your Participants & Hosts can download them and then re-upload to the Documents sections of their application.

Important: To be able to do this you will need to use a file-sharing platform. Here are a couple of examples Google Drive, Dropbox.

Before you start, please make sure that you have done have the following;

  1. Created an account with a file sharing service (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc)

  2. You have uploaded the Document/Resource you want to share to your file sharing service

  3. You have set the appropriate sharing settings for that document

  4. You have the sharing URL for that document

Once you have all of that in place, you'll need to create a new Content. To do that;

  • Click on 'Content' from the menu

  • Click 'New'

  • Select if you want to show this content to Hosts or Participants

  • Select what section of the application form you would like to show this content in

  • In the content section, you can add custom text to explain what you need to.

To add your document link into the content;

  • Type the name of the document (or any other text you find appropriate)

  • Use your cursor to highlight that text

  • Click the 'Create Link' icon from the editing menu


  • Paste the sharing URL of your document

  • Click 'OK'

In the text editor, your new link will look like this

Don't worry, it does not show to Participants and Hosts with this format. When shown in the Participant & Host portal, it will appear as a hyperlink to your document where they can view and download it.
