The Document linking widget will allow the user to link to a document from various sources. The sources of this document will include those stored in the Document Hub (within the Kurtosys App), a URL, or a Document that has been uploaded to the Media Library.
Before using this widget, there are 2 important items to note:
- Activate this custom widget from Network Admin > Kurtosys Extensions. Remember to Save after activating the widget from the list view of widgets
- If you want to link to documents stored in the Document Hub, you need to ensure your API key is added under Network Admin > Network Settings > Kurtosys API token.
- The API token is the same one as used for API requests and you can discuss this with your Kurtosys Representative if you are unsure of where to obtain this API key.
NOTE: You should add the “Document Admin role” which will bypass the entitlements for the API user. This way, you will be able to see all Documents from the Document Hub when searching for Documents in the Document Linking widget.
This will ensure you are able to use the widget and search for the Documents stored within the Document Hub.
