Key terms

Content Automation Asset: Image resources that can be uploaded into Content Automation templates. This may include logos, social media graphics, illustrations, photography etc.

Content Automation Asset Library: The Asset Library is a central repository for all the images, logos and icons used in your documents.

Content Automation Template: Templates are files that act as a starting point when creating documents. Templates contain pre-formatted elements to help you design your collateral according to your brand's style guidelines. Each template is populated with and controlled by a number of Inputs that allow users to edit the document's content.

Document: Documents can be created by users from their available suite of templates. Documents are the individual pieces of collateral that live inside a project folder e.g. brochures, web ads, signage, business cards, social media tiles etc. These documents can be edited based on the inputs available in that template. Documents may or may not require approval in order to be exported and downloaded, shared or printed.

Tag: Tags are labels you create to meaningfully group teams so that you can efficiently manage the content they have access to.



The Content Automation Library is home to all images that can be used within Content Automation templates.

Depending on how your account is set up, you may have access to the following libraries:

  • Your images - This is a space for you to upload images and use in templates when allowed.
  • Account images - These are images that your account administrators have uploaded to be used in templates.

Frequently Asked Questions

I can see an image in the library but I can’t find it when editing a template?
If you can’t find an image or library while editing a template, your administrator may have locked the template input to only specific images. This is to ensure that all collateral produced is on-brand.
