The anatomy of the asset modal


  • Brandfolder


Owner, Administrator, Collaborators, and Guests can view the asset modal.

The asset modal is laid out with the end user in mind. At the top, you will find the core tabs for your asset's navigation, details, and consumption.

Overview Tab

The overview tab highlights basic information about the asset(s). You can find the attachments and the ability to download them on the right side within the modal. 

This image shows the overview tab of the asset modal.

Below the asset preview on the left, you will find a few fields indexed by Brandfolder and searchable by any user, such as:

  • Date asset was created
  • User that created asset
  • Date asset was last updated
  • Date asset will be published (if asset availability is enabled)
  • Date asset was expired (if asset availability is enabled)
  • User that approved asset (if approvals are enabled)

Metadata tab

On this tab, an end-user can quickly see all associated EXIF metadata and additional details like text from images for each file or attachment. All the information on this tab is indexed by Brandfolder and searchable by any user.




Similar tab

This tab allows users to see all assets within that Brandfolder or Collection similar to the selected asset and any duplicates. This image shows the similar tab of the asset modal.

Duplicates show other files that are exact duplicates of the attachment selected.

Visually Similar attachments are based on tags and pixel-level data. They will show the most overlap attachments. This works at the attachment level and will differ for each attachment. This section will be blank if attachments do not have tags or tags.

Suggested Assets are based on user behavior. It works at the asset level and surfaces assets most often accessed in the same user session but across all users in that Brandfolder. You can think of it as an average of all users’ behavior, and the more users and usage in a Brandfolder, the better these suggestions become. For example - if people often use the same set of assets to build a brand-compliant PowerPoint, these assets would all be surfaced as suggested for one another. Suggested assets are the same across all users in a Brandfolder and for all attachments on an asset.

Embed tab

This tab allows users to embed the asset using Brandfolder's CDN functionality.This image shows the embed tab of the asset modal.



Usage tab

The usage is where an admin will get an overall view of how this asset is being shared and used with the Brandfolder Embed CDN functionality. This tab also shows what Brandfolders and the collections it is associated with on the left-hand side. This image shows the usage tab of the asset modal.


Workflow tab
