I PURCHASED A DIGITAL PRODUCT BUT AM NOT SURE HOW TO DOWNLOAD IT.
The easy solution is to simply login to your YM360 User Account, click on the "downloads: purchases" tab and all your files will be here. Find your download and click the link associated with it. Clicking this link should initiate a download, assuming you have not exhausted your allowed downloads/IP address restrictions.
WHAT IS A ZIP FOLDER AND WHY IS THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION SO IMPORTANT?
A zip folder is a compressed folder containing lots of folders and files. This is how we deliver most of our purchased digital resources. So, you'll need to know how to open this folder once you download it. Once you've downloaded and saved, simply right-click on the file folder and choose "extract all" in the pop-up menu. Or you Mac users, just double click on the zipped folder to open.
MY DOWNLOAD WAS INTERRUPTED OR IT DIDN'T WORK THE FIRST TIME. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Log in to your YM360 User Account and click on the "downloads: purchases" tab. Find your download and click the link associated with it. Clicking this link should initiate a download, assuming you have not exhausted your allowed downloads/IP address restrictions. If you're still having trouble, please don't hesitate to contact us.
I DOWNLOADED A DIGITAL STUDY OR FREE RESOURCE AND I CAN'T OPEN IT.
Virtually all issues of this type are due to software issues on the computer attempting to download the file/folder. Here are some pointers that should help you get started troubleshooting the issue:
Many of our FREEBIES are downloaded in compressed folders called ".zip" files. These folders must be "un-compressed" before they can be accessed. You'll need to make sure your computer has compression software installed and up-to-date. Consider downloading WinZip (http://www.winzip.com) or 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org) if your computer does not have compression software installed. Some of our FREEBIES aren't in folders but are individual .pdf files. You must have a PDF reader to access these files. We recommend Adobe Reader. You can download it free here. (www.adobe.com/reader) Make sure your machine has completed the download. Often, in their excitement to access the awesome free content from YM360, our customers will try to open a file that has not yet fully downloaded. Patience is a virtue, you know. If you've taken these steps and still have issues, please don't hesitate to contact us.
HOW DO I ACCESS THE NATIVE VIDEO FILES FROM MY MEDIA DISC ON MY YM360 PHYSICAL PURCHASE?
Insert your Media Disc into your computer. MAC users = Right click on the disc to open it. WINDOWS users = locate the disc through using the "my computer" area. Look for the folder labeled "Data." Open the "Data" folder and you'll see the native files of the respective videos. The .mov file is ideal for Mac users (Quicktime), whereas the .mpeg file should work best for those using PC's (Windows Media Player).
HOW DO I UPLOAD AN E-VOTION TO FACEBOOK FROM MY YM360 PRODUCT?
Make sure you're logged in to Facebook. Then, drag to your desktop the E-votions you want to upload. Go into Facebook and follow Facebook's instructions for uploading images. When given the option to select an image to upload, simply choose one of the E‐votions you have on your Desktop. Once you've uploaded the E‐votions, message your students. Have them read the devotions and respond on your wall, or in the comment section.
I CAN'T OPEN A LEADERS GUIDE, STUDENT WORKSHEET, OR OTHER PDF. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
You'll need a program that allows you to view PDF's. We suggest Adobe Reader. You can download it for free here. (http://get.adobe.com/reader)
I CLICK ON THE TEACHER PREP VIDEO LINK IN MY LESSON PLAN AND NOTHING HAPPENS. HOW CAN I VIEW TEACHER PREP VIDEOS?
If you're having trouble clicking through to a Teacher Prep Video, try copying the link and pasting it directly in to your web browser's address window. This should fix any issues you have. Or type it in.
I'M HAVING TROUBLE ACCESSING A DOWNLOADED FILE ON MY IPAD.
There's good reason for this. Most of our downloaded files are contained in .zip folders. Your computer will handle these folders, but your iPad will not. Also, unless you download an app that will allow you to read PDFs, it could be tricky for you to access the downloaded lessons that aren't contained in .zip folders.
