How do I add/manage links to cloud docs, websites or other elements within an element?

You can add a link-based content area for three distinct types of links:

(1) To your cloud hosted files; for example, as hosted on Google Drive, Dropbox, Office 365 or Sharepoint;

(2) To external web pages;

(3) To other Method Grid elements.

To add one of these element content areas, an architect/builder can select them from the "add element content areas" action button dropdown (see How do I add/manage content areas within an element?).

Next, ensure you are in edit mode, by clicking the edit mode action button from within the element action bar.

To link to your cloud hosted files, click on the “Link to a cloud doc +” button at the bottom of the 'Cloud doc links' area. Next, type in the address (URL) and the link text you wish to have displayed within your element. Click on the save action button to confirm. 

To delete a cloud docs link, click on the delete action button to the far right of the link.

To create an external link to another website, click on the “Link to a website +” button at the bottom of the 'Web links' area. Next, type in the website address (URL) and the link text you wish to have displayed within your element. Click on the save action button to confirm. 

To delete a website link, click on the delete action button to the far right of the website link.

To create a link to another element (anywhere within your Method Grid platform), click on the “Link to an element +” button at the bottom of the 'Element links' area. From the dropdown box that opens, select an element to link to (all available elements will be presented in the format of “grid name | element name”). Click on the save action button to confirm.

To delete an element link, click on the delete action button within the displayed element link.
