Single Asset View

When clicking on the filename or thumbnail of an asset in the library you are taken to single asset view. Here you are presented with a preview of the asset on the left and a number of options on the right showing you Info, Attachments, Deliveries, Relationships and more depending on file type.

Below the preview on the left you’ll see three buttons for downloading{{Working With Assets}}, sharing and more. When it comes to sharing there are two places where you can open up the sharing window: here in single asset view or through the more button (⋮) on the library assets page (the button is only visible once you’ve selected an asset).

Once you’ve opened the share screen you can choose to share the asset securely by inviting specific users via their email addresses, or you can choose to set up a public link which can then be shared with anyone - see the tabs along the top of the window. Here, you can also see the status of any shares that have been set up previously.

Next to the share button in single asset view, you’ll see the more menu (⋮)

Here you will see some or all of the following options:

  • Send to Delivery - attaches the asset to a new order in Adstream's delivery module
  • Add to Work Request - adds to a specific work request in the Projects module
  • Copy to
    • Collection - copies asset to a specific collection
    • Project - copies asset to a project in the Projects module
    • Presentation - copies asset to a specific Presentation
  • Change Media Type - allows you to choose a new media type, 
  • Remove - deletes the asset

You will also see this more menu (⋮) on the library assets page with similar options available..

Underneath these three buttons, you'll notice an arrow which reveals the on-screen controls to navigate between adjacent assets.


Info, Attachments and More

On the right-hand side of the preview you’ll see a row of a number of clickable icons showing different sets of information, depending on your permissions.

Information.png Details. View and edit the essential metadata for the asset with the option to edit some of that information through the icon.
Usage Rights. View and manage all usage rights associated with an asset. See below on adding usage rights.
Attatchment.png Attachments. View and manage asset attachments.

Slate and Storyboard

For any QC'd master file, you will see the  icon where you can access the Slate for the asset as well as an autogenerated, downloadable 8 frame storyboard.

Adding Usage Rights

To add new information on usage rights, click the  icon when in single asset view and then click Add.

You'll then be able to choose the kind of rights to add, such as Visual Talent or Music.

You must then fill in all the required information and click Save.

You can add multiple different types once you've saved. Click Add to repeat the process.

Adding usage rights can also be done from the library assets page, highlight the assets and then use the more menu (⋮) to access the same options as above.

Editing metadata

When in the info section of the right-hand side panel Information.png , it is possible to edit much of the metadata here by clicking the pencil icon blk_pencil.png.

Furthermore it is possible to quickly edit metadata for a group of assets. The trick is to select a group of assets on the main assets page and choose Edit from the more menu (⋮). You will see all the assets you selected and you can edit the common metadata using the dropdowns on the right hand side.


You can also click edit one by one from the top of the screen This will then take you to the large asset view where you can edit the metadata and when you're satisfied, use the options in the bottom right hand corner to either Save and Next, Save and Close or Cancel. Screen_Shot_2018-09-27_at_16.16.11.png
