Bulk actions have been designed to select several assets to collectively work with them, rather than several times individually, saving you time. There are two different ways to perform actions in bulk. The first is using the bulk action toolbar at the top of the screen, and the second is to use the editing sidebar.
Bulk action toolbar
After selecting several assets the top left-hand side will indicate how many you have selected, if you click on it again it will select all assets in that folder, and the third click eliminates the whole selection.
You can include different assets in an existing collection or create a new one.
You can move selected assets to an existing project, or create a new project and/or a folder.
Allows you to delete all the selected assets.
Selecting several items, including assets, folders, and all the contents, can be downloaded at once.
The editing sidebar opens as soon as you select one or more assets from the asset overview. It opens on the right hand side of the screen, and is split into the two sections of Metadata and Settings. If only one asset is selected, you will also see the Relations tab.
This tab will allow you to edit basic information about the asset such as it's name, description, workflow status, tags, licenses and copyright, as well as custom metadata properties.
The tags section is where you can set manual tags for the selected assets. AI-generated tags can only be managed on a single-asset basis. Purple-checked tags have been applied to all selected assets, purple tags with a plus symbol are applied to a part of your selection, and gray tags are applied to assets in the library but not the assets in your selection.
You have the option of modifying the standard settings, such as naming the creator, and licenses, and creating a lifecycle for the assets, it is also possible to set a copyright notice for multiple assets simultaneously.
Custom metadata can contain any type of extra information you need for assets in your library. These are set up in the metadata management area.
In the settings tab of the editing sidebar you can control the asset availability and targets in bulk.
