Library and Projects Release Notes

Hero_image__19_.png

Projects

The Projects module is where working files are kept, within the separate projects that they are needed for, these can be shared with your work group so that you can collaborate on them. From within a project you can save all the versions you have of a file submit new versions for approval, annotate photos and videos for clear feedback and also store supporting documentation such as scripts and other planning documents. When the files have had final stage approval, you can send them to the Library Module for easy retrieval later.

The Library

The Library module is where completed assets are kept. Your assets can be organised into collections so that it is easy to find them again. From the Library it is easy to send an asset for delivery. You can share assets with people internally or outside your organisation, either as individual files or as a completely branded professional looking presentation.

This release incorporates enabling new Navbar 2.0 to all clients, Minor feature enhancements, Core performance improvements introducing limitation in searching the assets and Critical bug fixes

The Adstream Platform consists of several apps and as such are presented to the user from the top bar navigation element of the screen. As the platform developed these apps have gone through various UI iterations and had fallen out of sync. The affect on the user is a mix of UI styles and designs which make the user experience less than intuitive.

To realign the platform we have been refreshing the UI design to fall in line with the Snowdrop visuals and as part of this alignment the top of the screen navigation has been unified across all work areas. This document is a brief on what to expect and how it will look.
