Related Assets

This article covers the following topics:

Introduction:

The Related Assets tool enables admins and contributors to link assets together – meaning that if you’re viewing an asset, previews of its related assets will appear in the right panel. (Those previews will not appear if the user doesn’t have permissions for the asset.)

Admins and contributors are able to relate up to 123 assets. Assets must be active to appear in the related list (but not required to relate them).

You can also use Related Assets to control which assets are eligible for use in Webdam Templates.
