Exploring the Brandfolder Interface

Brandfolder is designed to be intuitive and user friendly, requiring little to no training for end users. Below are some highlights of our user interface. 

Folder-less Organization 

Don't limit yourself with folders. Brandfolder provides a modern, flat organization structure that is supplemented by a visually intuitive interface and sophisticated taxonomy. 

  • Sections are customizable categories to which each asset belongs. They are the broadest organization mechanism and are commonly used to separate assets by their category, type, or purpose. 
  • Pins are saved searches that appear beneath your Sections. Clicking a pin filters your Brandfolder down to only the assets that match the associated search query. 
  • Collections are groups of related assets within a Brandfolder that can be shared with (or hidden from) specific users. Collections can be private or public.

Thumbnail View

  • By default Brandfolder displays assets in thumbnail view, creating a visually intuitive approach to content discovery.
  • On the thumbnail, you can see an asset preview, asset name, file type, if multiple files are included, and a selection box.
  • Hovering over the asset surfaces offers quick edit and download buttons.

List View

Brandfolder's list view optimizes space and consolidates critical asset information - including small previews, names, tags and file types - at a glance. Toggle to list view by clicking the icon furthest to the right of the Sort by options.

Sorting Your View

By default, your Brandfolder is sorted by Position added. You can toggle your view to sort assets by: 

  • Name - Orders alphabetically 
  • Updated - Orders according to update recency
  • Created - Orders by original asset creation date
  • PopularityPopularity is the combined events each of your assets has associated with it, like views, downloads, shares and more. Sort by Popularity to discover new insights based on data-driven asset events.

Sticky Sections and Pagination   

  • As you scroll through your Brandfolder, the currently viewable Section and Pages (if applicable) will stick to the top of your window. 
  • Within each Section, Brandfolder will automatically create a new page when your asset volume exceeds 100. E.g. if a particular Section contains 550 assets, 5 pages will exist. 
  • Pagination helps speed up load times of large-scale Brandfolders, providing quick asset delivery in a manageable interface.

Bulk Action Toolbar  

Batch updating is a must have for efficient asset management. Brandfolder supports the following bulk actions: 

  • Download - assets can be resized, converted, and downloaded in bulk. Hover over Download and click the Download Some button to try it out. 
  • Share - share any number of assets with a single share link. Share links can be viewed, edited, and deleted by admins. 
  • Add to Collection - add any number of assets from your Brandfolder to one, multiple, or all Collections. 
  • Merge - combine related or duplicate assets into a single asset container
  • Tag - apply tags to multiple assets at a time, and manage commonly shared tags of selected assets in bulk
  • Delete - delete any number of assets from your Brandfolder view. Admins can visit their /recover page to restore recently deleted files. 
  • Move - move assets into other Sections within your Brandfolder, or to other Brandfolders you have access to within your Organization
  • Set Availability - apply Publish and Expiration dates, times, and timezones to control the viewability of your assets to end users. 
  • Approve Assets - admins with approver rights can bulk approve any number of pending assets
