Manage Custom IFDs & YAGs

After creating customized Instructional Focus Documents (IFDs) and Year at a Glance documents (YAGs), users can manage these items through the My Content page (this section may be restricted by the district).

In addition to search filters being provided, there are a number of options available that allow users to modify, print, or share custom content.

SITE ACCESS: Tools > My Content > My IFDs or My YAGs


Click on the Tools drop-down in the site’s main navigation menu, and select the My Content option.

  • Add to District (Content Admins only) – allows Content Admin to add the item to the district repository (District Content section of System Management)
  • Collaborate – allows user to share the editing privileges of an item with other members of his/her campus or district. Collaborated items are shared equally by all collaborating members, so if one member deletes the item it will be deleted for all other members
  • Archive - removes the content from view, and stores in the system for later use (search filter provided)
  • Delete – deletes the record from TEKS Resource System (please note that this action CANNOT be undone)

NOTE: Once an item has been archived, it will be hidden from the general search. However, use the Show Archived filter to view any previously archived items, which will be shaded in a solid color and state "Archived" under the Status column).
