Up until this year, if I wanted to upload a new file to my course, I could do so from the content page I wanted to add it to. The named file would appear as usual with the option to view, download, etc., and it would automatically be added to the Files page. Now, however, when I try to upload a new file directly to a content page the only thing that appears is the work Link, which I assume is a working link. This is problematic since my files lives on my computer, which is only on during school hours.
In order to upload a new file that will appear on the content page as a named file with the option to view, etc., I have to go to the File page first and upload it there. Why the extra step? It was much more convenient to be able to upload the files directly and then organize them on the File page at my leisure.
