Support and Documentation


The CloudConvert plugin extracts text from files uploaded into Brightspot, and editors can search for those files using free text. For example, if you upload a Word file, the plugin extracts and indexes the text, making the file searchable.

The CloudConvert plugin works in conjunction with Digital Asset Management, which provides document, spreadsheet, and presentation content types. These content types support file uploads.

The plugin uses the CloudConvert API to convert document, spreadsheet, and presentation formats to text. The following table lists the formats you can convert.
