Learn how to upload individual assets to Assemble and manage version control.
What Makes Individual Assets Unique?
Individual assets are self-contained assets. This means that when you open an individual asset or share it, it will not have left and right scroll arrows to access other assets in the same phase folder. The asset will be a standalone asset to keep the user focused on that specific asset.
Additionally, individual assets are the only asset types that contain version control.

Uploading an Asset
If you'd like to upload an individual asset, open the Phase where you would like to add the asset, click the + Add button in the top right, and select Asset.
On the next screen, click Browse to select a file from your computer, or Drag & Drop it into the window to upload the asset.
If you would like to add a file as a link from another website (i.e. Google Docs), click the Add a Link button at the bottom of the page and add in your link, then click Insert.
By default, the files will be uploaded with their original file name. If you would like to change the file name, just click the Title and enter a new name.
When finished, click Done and the asset will be uploaded to your project.
Bulk Upload Assets
If you'd like to upload multiple assets at once, just add as many files as you'd like to the upload screen. All of the assets will upload simultaneously.
Once the assets are finished uploading, the will all be added to your project as individual files. For instance, if you upload ten photos together, each photo will be added to the project as a standalone asset.

From this menu, click Edit Asset in order to change the title of the asset.
Inviting Collaborators to Assets
To share an asset with other team members on the project, open the asset and click the Share button at the top right, then select Invite Collaborators to this File.
Within this screen, you can grant access to entire Teams or individual Members. You can also Invite new members to join the project via email.
Adding team members to an asset in this method will require them to create an Assemble account to join the project.

This will enable you to share this asset as a public link that can be accessed with no login required.
Once the link is shared, external users can review, comment, and approve the asset.
