Q. Can I upload Captivate output to SharePoint – where SharePoint is being used as our intranet?
While there are articles on the web about using Flash output (SWF) in SharePoint, this note assumes HTML5 output from Captivate.
- Publish your HTML5 output from Captivate to a local folder
- Rename index.html to something like project_name.aspx (make sure you are editing the extension – so you don’t get project_name.apsx.html) – We are doing this so that SharePoint(and the IIS web server) will know this is content to display – a web page, not a text file to open like a word document.
- Open the top level folder in windows explorer (we will copy the web page and supporting folders form this in a moment)
- In the destination document library in SharePoint create a folder for this project (see the File Tab on the ribbon for the new folder tool)
- Open the new folder
- From the ribbon in SharePoint select Files Tab and then Explorer view
- Copy all the content including sub folders from the local folder to the SharePoint explorer window
- Then you can link to the project_name.aspx file from a SharePoint web or wiki page
- Tested on SharePoint 2013 – should work on SharePoint 2010
