Owners and Administrators can configure collections

Collections allow you to custom select which assets your users should see and hide what they should not. Whether you need to ensure that Sales only has access to the assets they need or that your partners are pulling from the right asset pool, collections help you provide the right assets to the right audience. 

Most Brands can benefit from collections. However, we’ve put together a few points that might help make your decision easier. 

  • Do you need the ability to hide certain assets from specific Brandfolder users?

  • Do you want to share a set of assets (which can change over time) with specific users?

  • Do you want to share public assets from your private Brandfolder?

  • Do you want to share the same asset with different groups of users?

  • Do you need your partners or clients to upload assets but only see what's pertinent to them?

Create a collection and add assets

  1. Select the assets you want to be provisioned to the Collection on the Brandfolder level.This image shows someone adding an asset to a collection using the bulk action toolbar.

Pro tips:

  • Sections are only visible in a Collection if assets have been added from that section.
  • Collections can have unique pinned tags and privacy settings.
  • Collections can have a customized header image.
