What are Media Library Targets about?
You might have already used the previously introduced Style Guide Targets functionality to granulate your Style Guide and tailor parts of it to certain targets. With Media Library Targets, you can take this break down to the asset level, meaning that you can define the visibility of your assets for different departments, markets, and more.
How to set up Media Library Targets?
As with the Style Guide Targets, you can set up targets, and assign them to users and user groups, on the ‘Usage Overview’ page. To enter the usage management page, click on your profile picture > 'Usage Overview'. Then, switch to the “Targets” tab to create new targets. You can define the target name, and add a description.
Assigning targets to your assets can be done in two ways. The handiest way to set targets for your assets is by entering the backend of your libraries or projects. Once there, hover over the preferred assets to select them. Then, provided that you've enabled targets for the respective library, a new target bulk action will appear at the top of your screen. Click on it and switch from the ‘All Viewers’ tab to the ‘Targeted’ one as done in the GIF below to apply the preferred targets to your assets.
To keep the overview in the backend of your Media Library, you can also move a group of assets to folders, and assign targets from there.
An alternative method is to set targets on assets displayed in your Style Guide. Simply switch to the edit mode, and enter the settings section of your preferred asset by clicking on the cogwheel. On the bottom of the window that appears, you’ll find a section called ‘Visibility.’ Switch from the ‘All Viewers’ tab to the ‘Targeted’ one to assign targets to the chosen asset.
Note that the Targets feature only helps to differentiate between viewers. Editors and account owners will still have the ability to see and edit everything. Further, viewers with no targets assigned are only able to see untargeted content.
