The Asset Manager now replaces the Creaitve Library, giving users the ability to import and access images, emails (.htm, .html) and other media assets such as PDF’s.
Users will be able to access the asset manager when attempting to import images into the email editor, landing page editor as well as Leadbox. Before, image sections in either the email or landing page editor required users to import from their local device every time. While the images would be saved on their account server, they could not be accessed from this menu. Asset Manager unifies all image upload functions to call the manager every time. Additionally, editing images with the image editor tool deprecated the quality of the image.
With asset manager, images uploaded or accessed from the manager can be edited while still maintaining quality. Lastly, the on submit CTA of initiating a file download required that the user create a file path for the assets they wished a record to receive after submitting on a form.
With asset manager, users can import their media ahead of time, and call from the asset manager media they wish leads to download after submit - while also logging the asset download in the record’s Timeline Report. As a lead submits on form and receives the asset, the name of the form as well as asset will be logged against their history. The url will also be unique to the recipient and have an expiration so it may not be shared.
Asset Manager can be accessed on the main navigation bar (folder icon).
File Info - Clicking this will reveal the URL path for the image as well as the type and size of asset.
Upload - When clicking into a folder, uploading an asset will place the file type into the designated folder

Resize - this will resize the image, where the aspect ratio can be maintained or not. Users can also select to create a new image or overwrite the existing file
Crop - users can trim the original image
Rotate - image can be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise 90 degrees per click
Adjust - a list of image definitions to scale up or down (i.e brightness, sharpness, contrast, etc.)
Presets - instead of adjusting an image, select from a list of preset definitions.
The Assets folder is a system folder that cannot be edited, however when clicking on the down carrot, users will be shown three separate folders; Emails, Images and Media. The intent is for any email assets (.html and .htm) to be placed in the Email folder, images in the image and other media assets in the media.
Users may create subfolders within each master folder to more seamlessly organize their files. Emails saved to the library will be stored in the ‘drafts’ folder automatically while emails deployed will be pushed automatically to the ‘sent’ folder.
Users may also elect to change how assets are viewed. By clicking on the gear icon in the top right of the manager, a sidecar panel gives the ability to view files by thumbnail, list or a compact view. May also sort by file name, date added or file size. Lastly, if thumbnail is selected, users can change the size of the thumbnails.
Accessing the Asset Manager
When importing an image either through an image section or a rich content block, the asset manager will be shown. Users can elect to edit images or import new images into the asset manager and pre-determine the location prior to injecting into a template.
The asset manager can be accessed regardless of using our drag n drop preset templates or with 3rd party html.
Users will also be able to import via the ‘my library’ step of the Email Wizard html that’s been previously sent, saved as draft into the manager or imported as a file.
Within image sections of a preset template or importing images via content sections of a landing page, the asset manager will now be loaded.
Within the leadbox editor, when attempting to import an image as header, background or within a content section, the asset manager will now be loaded.
