Getting started with Cloudpress

Welcome to Cloudpress!

Cloudpress allows you to publish content created in Google Docs to your Content Management System (CMS).

Before you get started with Cloudpress, we suggest that you read through our How Cloudpress works document to get a better understanding of the product.

Register and Log In

To get started with Cloudpress, you will need to register with an email address and password. Once registered you can log in to Cloudpress with the email address and password you used during registration.

Linking accounts

After you have logged in to Cloudpress, you will need to link your Content Management System accounts. Linking an account give Cloudpress access to that account, thereby enabling it to publish your content to that account.

To link your accounts, you can go the the Linked Accounts section of the Cloudpress application.

If you have not linked any accounts yet, you will see a screen similar to this:

From here, you can proceed to link the accounts by clicking on the button corresponding to the type of account you want to link. For example, if you want to link your WordPress account, you can click on the Link a WordPress account button.

For more detailed guides on linking each of the different types of accounts, you can refer to the following documentation:

Publishing a document

Use the Google Docs Add-on

The most convenient way to publish a document is by making use of our Google Docs Add-on, as it allows you to publish content without ever leaving your Google Docs editor.

Refer to the following information to use the Add-on:

Use the Publish Documents page

You can also publish documents by making use of the Publish Documents page.

This approach is useful as it allows you to publish multiple documents at once.

View published documents

Both the Google Docs Add-On and the Publish Documents page will allow you to navigate to the published document on your CMS after it has been published.

Alternatively, you can also view a list of all published documents by going to the Publication History section of the Cloudpress application.

Here, you will see a list with details on all the documents previously published:
