Immediate and easy access to all the assets you need is a great timesaver. However, with access to thousands (sometimes millions) of assets, it is not always easy to pinpoint which assets to bring into play for a particular purpose. Creating a campaign for the opening of a new branch or store, or designing the next exhibition stand, can be a demanding task for most and you need all the help you can get.
Assets can be browsed in several different ways in XMedia, but sometimes browsing for yourself is not enough –you need to show something to someone else. Presentation View lets you do just that. No need for everything to be presented in Icon and List view. With Presentation View you can place text next to each asset that you want to present, making it easier for users to choose the exact right asset for the job at hand. Folders utilizing the Presentation View even allows you to create an introduction to the entire folder – in the form of text, images, or interactive Flash files.
When preparing for a new campaign, imagine that your brand manager has laid everything out for you in a folder on XMedia. All you need to do is point your browser to the right folder, and the campaign is presented for you, with all the assets you need, ready at hand together with an explanation on how to activate the assets for the campaign.
The "Asset Availability" module enables you to plan and execute campaigns at the moments of your choice. With the appropriate access rights, you can upload assets while keeping them hidden from others, until the moment of your choosing. Each folder or individual asset can have individual ‘available’ and ‘unavailable’ dates configured. This will make sure that the folders and assets appear only at the chosen time for the designated users. At the end of the campaign when the folders and assets are about to be removed (also automatically), you will receive an email notification allowing you sufficient time to prolong the availability time if needed.
