You may need to attach an Asset to your Question. You can attach Assets that have been pre-loaded into the system. If the file you want to use is not listed, you can upload it to the project. Some Assets may require Metadata, if the metadata was not saved with the Asset, you are required to add the metadata to the Asset when you attach it to the Question.


For more information on uploading and accepting Assets, refer to Uploading an Asset and Accepting an Asset respectively.
