Creating a workspace and uploading documents

This article explains how to create your first workspace and begin uploading documents.

Before you can start creating annotations on your documents, you need to create a workspace and upload your documents into it. This can be done by following two simple steps.

  1. From the Home page, click on the green Create a new workspace button.


    Click on the Create a new workspace button to create your first workspace.

  2. Choose a name for your workspace. You can also add a description to provide further information about what the workspace is for.

Congratulations, you have created your first workspace! To add additional workspaces at a later point in time, go to the Home page and click on the following icon:

You can now add documents to your workspace. To upload a document you can simply drag and drop your documents or folders onto the Documents tab. This will begin the upload(s) automatically.

Alternatively, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Upload a document button on the top left of the screen.


    To upload a new document, click the Upload a document button.

  2. Select the documents that you wish to upload. You can do this by browsing the files on your device using the Select Files button, or by using the Drag and Drop feature. Annotate.co targets .pdf documents, but you can also upload documents in Office formats, including MS Word (.docx, .doc), PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx), text files (.txt), and images (.jpg, .png, .tiff). Annotate.co will convert these formats to .pdf on upload. Your documents will upload automatically once you have selected them.


    You can select documents for upload by either clicking the Select Files button or using the Drag and Drop feature.

Your documents are now uploaded and are ready to be annotated!

    This was very helpful for me to establish a workspace. I read the assigned articles from my professor, but I was curious how all the tools I have learned about annotations would fit together. This article shows me how to create a workspace, drag and drop my documents or articles I want to keep or upload from the files I have saved and begin to use all the annotation tools to create a beautiful piece of work that can be filtered into notes for easy reading and access. GREAT IDEA!

    Annotate.co allows users to create a workplace and upload documents from the homepage. This two step process includes clicking on the create a new workplace tab, naming, and providing a description to the new workplace. Users may drop, drag, upload and store documents in this space. The documents will be converted to PDF files . Files are ready for annotation.
