  1. Check that you have the correct project selected.
  2. Click Documents.
  3. Select Upload a New Document.
    If you're uploading a number of documents at the same time you can select Multiple File Upload instead.
  4. Complete all mandatory details about your document. Mandatory fields are marked in yellow.
  5. Click Confidential.

  3. Their name will appear on the list. Repeat these steps to add more names to the access list.

Your document/s are now uploaded and are marked confidential. Only you, and the people on the access list, will be able to view the documents.
