Adding files to your project (coming soon)

From the Content Hub, click on Files & media in the left menu to view your project files. To add files to your project, click on the 'Add files' button.

You'll be greeted with an upload modal. Here you can either drag and drop items from your computer onto the modal directly or click 'Browse my local files'.

Once you're happy with the files you want to add, click 'Add to project'.

Viewing files

To view files at their actual size, and see where they're currently being used, click on the file name.

This is the file viewer. You can see details such as file size and type on the right-hand side, as well as which items that file is currently being used on.

Tip: Items that a user doesn't have permission to view won't be individually listed.

Downloading files

To download a file, click on the options menu in the top bar and select 'Download'.

Tip: You can also use the shortcut Shift + D to download a file straight away.

Deleting files

As with downloading files, you can delete files from the same menu.

When you delete a file, it will be removed from all items that it is currently attached to.

Note: Deleting files is permanent and cannot be undone. When choosing to delete files that are currently being used on items, you'll be asked to confirm your choice to avoid accidental deletion. If you do accidentally delete a file you'll need to add the file to your project and necessary items again.

Adding files to an item

You can add files to items by using Asset fields. Once you've added an Asset field to an items' structure, click on 'Add files' when in the content editor.

You'll then be greeted with the Add files modal. The first tab you'll see is the Project tab. This displays all of the files that already exist in your project. You can search the name of a file and change the view between grid and rows.

All that's left to do now is to select the file or files, you wish to add to your item, and click 'Insert'.

If the file you want to use isn't yet in your project, click on the Upload tab. Here you can either drag and drop items from your computer onto the modal directly or click 'Browse my local files'.

Once you've chosen some files, you'll be given the opportunity to check you're happy with what you're about to upload. If not, hover over a file and click the 'Trash' button to remove it. Otherwise, choose 'Upload'.

After you decide to upload your files, you'll see their progress. Once complete, the files will be inserted into your item.

In rare instances, a file may fail to upload. If this happens, just click 'Try again'. If it keeps happening feel free to reach out to our support team.

Interacting with files on an item

You have various options when interacting with files in Asset fields. Hovering over the files will bring up the options, as well as more details about the file.

Here you can choose to:

  • Download the file straight to your computer
  • Delete the file from the item (this doesn't delete the file from your project)
  • Comment on the file
  • View a larger version of the file (for files where a preview is available)

Tip: You can download all files on an item from the item menu.

Interacting with files on the content hub

Interacting with files works in the same way as items. Clicking on a file will select it. You can repeat the process to select multiple files. Selecting files will bring up the action bar at the bottom of the browser.

Here you have two options:

  • Download the file(s) to your computer (Single files will download straight away. You'll be emailed a download link for multiple files.)
  • Delete the file(s) from your project

Note: Deleting files is permanent and cannot be undone. When choosing to delete files that are currently being used on items, you'll be asked to confirm your choice to avoid accidental deletion. If you do accidentally delete a file you'll need to add the file to your project and necessary items again.

File size limits

Maximum size limit

You can only upload assets that are smaller than 50Mb per file.
