Import from Office Wizard - uploading image step
The first step in importing from Office, is to select the position within a web page to import the content and then to browse for the Word document.
The system will process the document and identify any images that are included. For each image found in the document the system prompts the user to specify the "ALT Text" and the destination of the image. This is shown in the screen shot opposite.
It is worth noting that once an image is uploaded into Contensis it can be reused over and over again.
