Resource Browser

The Resource Browser is used to add images and other resources to flipchart pages.  You have 2 options for resource storage: "My Resources" & "Shared Resources".  In either, you can create folders to store resources in a way you can quickly find and use them.  When you find a resource, click the resource and drag it onto the flipchart page.  (Click on images for larger views.)
