Library and Projects Release Notes



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.

  • Updated comment formatting - now when adding comments to files, all intended formatting will be retained.
  • Multi-audio playback - for library video assets which have passed QC, and have multiple audio tracks, you can now select which audio channel to play back, when playing the video.
  • Hiding fields - now as an admin user you will be able to hide Common Metadata fields from Project forms as to ensure a clear view for you and your BU members, when creating new projects.
