Time to achieve: 10 minutes to familiarise yourself with our recommendations.

If you decide to change the module menu, make sure you:

  • Keep to letters and numbers as symbols aren’t always supported and won’t appear on some mobile devices.
  • Try to keep names concise and descriptive.

Find out more about editing the module menu by reading our guide.

Files sizes

It’s good practice to keep file sizes low where you can – on a mobile device or slow connection users could be waiting minutes to download files/view images otherwise. If you target mobile devices remember on 4G connections data has a cost.

In particular images are often unnecessarily large.

File types

For text documents/presentations we recommend using PDF for documents where possible.
