You can use the cloud to host published documents, images, videos and other file types if you don’t have another hosting service for files.
If they are hosted on the Kapost Cloud, we will provide you with a published URL and a tracking URL that you can use wherever you need make these document publicly accessible. There is no storage limit in the Kapost Cloud.
- The Kapost Cloud is not a substitute for a DAM: you can't pull published content in the cloud into other content you’re creating.
- If you're trying to publish an image to the Kapost Cloud and see an error message saying there's no publish destination configured, you can resolve this by granting yourself publish permissions to the Kapost Cloud as your publish destination. Manage publish access for the Kapost Cloud in the App Center settings area.
Benefits of Using the Kapost Cloud:
If you want to generate a tracking URL (i.e. the bit.ly URL Kapost uses to track downloads and views), a document must be published somewhere (it can't just be marked as published). Since Kapost may not integrate with all tools that you might want to publish content to, Kapost customers can just publish to the Kapost Cloud. Doing so will generate a published URL and a Tracking URL.
Republishing to the Kapost Cloud will replace the document without updating the URL (that is the desired behavior). Our recommendation is that you just publish/house all of your assets in the Kapost Cloud (as there is no file storage limit).
However, if you want to make changes to the content and republish it, all you should do is mark the content as published and then take the updated document and manually replace the original. This will keep the URLs intact.
