If you prefer, here’s a 3-minute Video tutorial.
When you login, you’ll arrive at your Dashboard, which displays all the articles you’ve submitted, and their status, e.g., Approved, Pending, Declined. It’s also where you can Delete any article you no longer want to appear in the library. (On your first login, you’ll see a message saying you have no files to view.)
You can click on any article title to review it.
Click Add Document
You’ll see a blank Add Document screen
Enter Title and Summary
1. Enter your article’s Title
2. Enter a Summary that explains your article and motivates lawyers to read it.
Tip: If you intend to enter a number of articles (as we hope you will), you may find it helpful to create a spreadsheet in which you’ve already prepared the handful of content categories you’ll need.
Here’s an example from mine:
Choose Categories and Subjects (tags)
Lawyers can find content three ways: 1) Browsing categories and subcategories within a directory tree; 2) Clicking on main categories and viewing subcategories within; 3) Clicking on a list of Subjects (tags); 4) keyword search.
To choose a Category, click on the Category field and scroll down the list until you find what you want. Or begin typing and let Dezurve suggest categories. If none of the existing categories is appropriate, you can create a new category.
Choosing/creating Subjects (Tags), to avoid duplication, as you type you’ll be prompted with existing tags. To use the existing Tag, click on it, not “Add Tag.”
Use “Add Tag” only if you’re creating a new Tag, where no prompt is offered:
Enter Questions and Answers
You’re welcome to enter these any way you choose. However, I’ve found it easier and faster to create the Q&A beforehand, then copy and paste all the questions at the same time, then all the answers. Click Convert to Quiz and Dezurve will convert these into Q&A for you:
Click on the Type dropdown and select your Q&A format for each question.
Attach and Submit your article
Drag and drop your PDF into the Content field, then click the green Submit Content button.
If the Submit Content button isn’t green, that means you’ve left a field blank.
After a successful submission, you’ll see your article displayed. Use the vertical elevator to view the entire article to make sure it’s correct:
