Asset categories are created in the Content section.
As shown in the visual below, the categories appear in the Content > Home > Asset library folder (node).
There are two asset category types (or hierarchy levels):
You can have as many Categories sitting within the Asset library folder node as you wish, and as many Sub categories within each Category.
It is your choice how you wish to categorise and structure your Asset library.
To add a new category:
For additional information on the save options, view the Various saving and publishing options page.
Now that you’ve completed your category structure, you can assign them to an asset.
To assign categories to an asset:
^ Both categories and subcategories can be selected, however, if categories contain subcategories, please select the subcategory only (it is not necessary to select both). Therefore, only select the top-level category when there are no contained subcategories.
To batch update categories across multiple assets, view Batch modifying assets.
Asset file formats (Asset Groups) such as Logos, Icons, Templates, Video files etc can be linked to Categories.
Once linked, selecting the File format (Asset group) button in the Asset library frontend will also automatically select the linked category. Conversely, selecting the Category in the Asset library frontend will also automatically select the linked File format button.
For more information, view the “Asset and Photo lists > Asset file format to Category link” section of our User Guide.
