Release: 16.2

View As PDF


Users can upload and store documents in a variety of formats via the iCIMS Talent Platform’s File Library. These documents are securely hosted by iCIMS and available to users working within a shared system. The File Library is used to store and maintain all global files that are referenced, linked, or displayed in many areas of the Platform or Portals.

Files may be added to the File Library from the appropriate Library menu bar item, or while composing an email. This article describes how to upload files to the File Library. For information about adding files that are already stored in the File Library to an email or task, please refer to the Adding Files from the File Library to an Email or Task article.

Uploading Files to the File Library from the Library Menu Item

  2. Click the Browse (or Choose File) button on the File Library screen to search for a document to upload to the File Library. Select the appropriate file and click Open to proceed. Once it has been selected, click the Upload button to store the new document in the File Library.
