Your document has to be a PDF-file format (Portable Document Format) to upload it. If your idea is in a file format other than PDF you may convert your document to PDF using one of the options below.
Your PDF must meet the following requirements when uploading:
1. Your file must be unsecured.
2. You need portrait view. See below.
Option 1: TurboScan App
The TurboScan App turns your iPhone into a multipage scanner for documents. With TurboScan you can quickly scan your documents and store or email them as multipage PDFs or JPEG files. For more information, click on this link.

Option 2: save your Word-file as a PDF-file in Microsoft Word
You can use the Microsoft Office-programs to save your files as PDFs.
Click the File tab. In the ‘File Name’ field, type or select a name for the document. In the Save as type list, click PDF (*.pdf) instead of Word-document. Click ‘Save’. Your document is now saved as a PDF-file.
Option 3: use an online converter
Several programs and websites are available on the Internet which can convert a file to a PDF-file. The website Doc2PDF.net will convert files to PDFs within minutes, free of charge.
An error occurred in the upload?
This use of your web browser could be the cause of the error. Especially using Mozilla Firefox or Safari. Try to use a different web browser. If the problem continuous with a different web browser (for example Internet Explorer or Chrome), please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Save your file in portrait view
If you want to upload your file, sometimes this message appears:
‘The file could not be uploaded. Please verify that your document is not protected, has a pdf version of 1.4 or lower and is in portrait view’.
Powerpoint presentations often have a ‘Landscape’ view. What to do now?
1. Save your PowerPoint as a PDF file.
2. Click ‘Options’.
3. Select ´Handouts´ instead of ´Slides´.
4. Choose the number of slides per page. Make sure your document is readable, so not too many slides per page.
Save your PDF-file in ‘Portrait’-view (standing) instead of ‘Landscape’ (lying)
