With the related assets feature, you’re able to link the assets in your libraries with each other. This way, you can directly see all related assets in one glance and navigate between them even quicker, without having to download attached assets. Read along to learn how to make the most use of it and how to set it up.
The use cases of the related assets feature are various. By relating assets to each other, you’re, for example, able to connect all assets you’re going to use in a campaign, or project with each other. Another use case would be to link assets with similar properties, who only differ in terms of logo color or language, to each other. All in all, it helps you to implement an additional sorting structure for your libraries.
Finding the Asset Relations feature
To find the related assets functionality, you first have to go to the backend view of the respective library. You can do so by entering the library project from the project space. Then, go on and open the preferred assets. Now, you’ll find an information icon in the power bar on the left-hand side. Click on it, and switch to the ‘Relations’ tab.
Linking related assets
Now you have the possibility to relate assets to each other. To relate assets to one another, you can either look through your locally saved assets , or use the asset chooser to browse the assets, which already exist in your Frontify projects. Once you open the asset browser, you can see the different asset statuses assigned. Note that all relations you set up are bi-directional.
As soon as you have connected assets with each other, the related assets will appear on your right-hand side. Simply click on the preferred asset to switch to the related one. To remove a relation between assets, simply click on the three dots on the right > Delete.
If you have the Publisher functionality in place, you can also relate a source file to an asset in the same way. This way, you can track back the template used to publish the given asset.
When you enter an asset from the frontend view, you’ll find the tab called ‘Relations’ on your right-hand side as well. There, all the related assets can be seen. Simply click on one of these related assets to open it in the frontend view.
