When adding a Resource you can select a Space that has been set up on the site and then choose a Page from within that Space.

When selecting a Page to add as a Resource, you can choose whether to make the resource available before after an activity has been completed (for instance you could make notes or slides from an event available after a user has been marked as Completed). You can also make the Resource available after a specific date, if you wish.

When a Resource has been added to an Event or a Programme it will show for users through their Training Plan or through the Catalogue.
