Admin Console

  • (SR) Folders' drag and drop reorganisation

Added possibility to drag and drop folders within Library explorer (FMAW widget) to change their hierarchy.

  • (SR) SAML SSO improvements

We now support IDP (Identity Provider) initiated SAML flows, that will ease integration with your systems and access federation.

  • (BT) Advanced Search and Filter

The biggest challenge in DAM is enabling users to find the right asset in the fastest and most convenient way. Successful collaboration is all about speed, ease-of-use and quality of results.

We developed a 2-tier search based on filters & search strings. Filters will limit the set of results, while search text will find the right asset.
Available filters: by popular tags, resolution, orientation, etc. We'll add more filter like face vs no face, file type, dominant colour, during the upcoming month.

Filters and search strings can be saved for later re-use.

  • (BT) New Users' Roles

Brand new and more granular User Roles have been implemented, allowing for a fine tuned visibility of features and settings. The role-based permission model allows you to create users with different privileges which can access and add assets as well as contribute by editing and annotating assets, access billing information and consult the analytics.
