ANATOMY of an Asset
An asset is simply a representation of your files and can be made up of 1 or more attachments. When an asset contains more than 1 attachment, we term it as a “stacked asset”. Additional attachments can be always be added or removed from an asset by editing it from the asset preview. Lastly, the asset name, description, tags, and attachment metadata are all searchable in Brandfolder. This is especially important when you begin to tag all of your assets.
PRO-TIP: Brandfolder will recognize files with the same filename. If files with the same filename are uploaded into the same section, Brandfolder will allow you to merge the files together or create the files as distinct assets.
- The asset preview pane is for viewing an asset's attachments. You can hover over each attachment thumbnail to see a preview.
- The attachments associated with the asset.
Best Practice: Only stack attachments that correspond to the same asset. Examples include different sizes or formats of the same logo, localized versions of the same document, or different view angles of the same product.
The filter bar contains high-level categorizations for assets in a Brandfolder. The filter bar contains both sections and pinned searches. Sections will filter based on asset type or organizational preference. Pinned searches may span multiple sections and search for key terms. Select any available filter to view its results.
There is also a search bar to allow you to find assets based on their name, tags, metadata, or description. Type your search term into the search box and any matching results will display. To clear a search, simply select the X below the search box.
PRO-TIP: You can also filter and search by tags or custom fields by clicking on them as shown below.
