Setting an Assets Status
To ensure your next hit stays on track it’s important to keep everyone up to date and on track. To facilitate that we’ve added a color coded status that can be set for every folder and file. Mark items as “needs work”, “coming along” or “done” with red, orange, and green color code accordingly to keep everyone on the same page.
To change the status of a file/folder, select the dropdown menu for the file status. You will be able to select from 3 different status, or remove a status.
Anyone with access to the project can change individual file status.
Asset Column Information
On a desktop device, you have the option to select what information is displayed in the third column of the project screen. This information can be sorted as well to help you quickly locate an asset.
See how many comments are associated with that particular audio file, as you cannot leave comments on any other type of asset at this time.
The date, month and year in which the asset was uploaded to the project.
Shows whether the asset is classified as audio, image, folder, or additional application.
This displays how much storage size a particular asset consumes. For folders, the total amount contained within the folder is calculated including any sub directories. If a folder shows -- that means there are no assets within that particular folder.
This displays the file extension associated with the asset such as .wav, .png, .pdf, etc
Every audio track has the number of plays tracked and displayed in the project screen. The play counter only increases if a track completes playing. This means if someone switches away from a track at the last moment, it won’t count as a play.
The point of the play counter is so you can see if your clients have listened to the track yet.
Q: Do I benefit from getting more plays on my track?
A: No, this isn’t a public streaming service so no royalties are paid for plays like a Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Another way to see information about an asset is to select it on a desktop device. This will bring up information on the right sidebar where you can see at a glance when the asset was uploaded, who uploaded the asset, along with the the size and extension of that particular asset.
