But First, Have You Checked Out Frontify for Desktop?
We want to share with you how excited we are about the response we got for our Frontify for Desktop app. Since December, we saw a 120% increase in app consumption.
Frontify for Desktop allows you to find assets up to 4 times faster. So, if you haven’t checked it out yet, you really should.
Key New Features
You can now manage your recurring projects more efficiently with custom-made project templates. Eliminate the redundant work of setting up the same project – every time – and always add the right team members, metadata, descriptions, and other parameters. A project template is a less error-prone way to manage a project consistently without having to start from scratch every single time. Learn how you can use project templates here.
We're now adding a publication approval functionality for print and online templates. Using this feature, you’ll be able to strike a balance between autonomy and consistency. Your users can still create their own assets from customizable templates. But, now you can have peace of mind that users won’t use the assets they created before they’ve been reviewed by the right people.
For all the stakeholders like you, who approve assets before they’re sent out into the world, you’ll benefit from the ‘Requests’ view feature to quickly approve content. With a single view, you’ll see all the pending requests, open ones, and everything you have approved in the past.
Turn Off Email Notifications for User & Group Invitations
From now on you can enable or disable invite notifications for any invite action – helping you further manage your updates (and your life). You are now in control of what information your users shouldn't miss out on and what information is necessary or too early for them to know about.
Move Assets Between Libraries of the Same Type
More often than not, you have to create different libraries of the same type for different projects or users. And we know how time-consuming it is to create the perfect library in which each asset has the right title, description, tags, and metadata. With this new feature, you don’t have to worry about that anymore. Starting from today, you can move assets between libraries that have the same type (e.g., icon to icon library, logo to logo library, etc.) without losing valuable information and going back to square one.
