Types of Conent

There are two primary types of content in DAU.mil and the Communities sites: Workforce Contributed and DAU Sponsored. All content on Team collaboration workspaces is private to the members of those teams and will only be visible in search by users who have at least Read permissions to the individual Team workspace.

Within each content type (DAU Sponsored and Workforce Contributed) there are different categories of content that can be uploaded: documents, links to documents, links to websites and job support tools (JSTs).  A job support tool could be of a variety of file types, to include: video, Word, Excel, PowerPoint or PDF.  Job support tools will all be displayed within the Tools pages of DAU.mil, however, when tagged appropriately will display in the search results or curated lists within community pages.
