Better Asset Management

  • Easily sort and organize assets (drag/move - organize in folders)
  • Take bulk actions ( multiple asset upload - multiple select - move to folders - delete assets)
  • Rename assets and define image alt text
  • Replace every instance of an asset throughout the project by replacing it in the Asset Manager
  • Find assets in the manager using a search bar

    2/9/18 Update:
    Hi All! Our designers have a lot of ideas around how to improve the asset manager, especially unifying the assets that you use on static pages and CMS collections. This improvement is important to us, but we are prioritizing larger features that will allow you to do more with Webflow, such as Multi-language, CMS Gallery, and Pagination. We can’t give you any dates for this right now, but we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.

    Also:

    • Remove all unused assets
    • Show only assets on selected pages

    Follow up on what Yuan is saying. 
    Lets sort them after whats in use on the website. Bulk delete everything that is not in use of images or files that are linked to.

    Folders would be definitely a grat help in large static websites. +1

    This is a merged feature request from January 2017, so it's much older than December 2017. Please please please implement a better asset manager soon! The asset panel is one of the worst aspects of Webflow currently (and those are very few and far between!).

    I am glad the Multi-language feature is a priority for you, we Europeans almost always need to provide our clients with a website in English plus the local language. However, batch deleting assets is a huge pain right now, any chance that we might see this soonish or is there currently any workaround?

    What we need are more supported file formats for download but at least *.zip and the possibility for EDITOR users to upload files for download at static pages and dynamic pages at the link settings.

    Very much needed!

    Currently dealing with a site with around 400 images and it's a real pain. Folders and bulk delete are must-haves. Please do this. (Now you've finished ecommerce!)

    I need support for special characters (non-English languages) and better handling of assets, for example: filename, display name, alt-TAG, title-TAG support?

    Imagine not having folders on your computer. How crazy would that be!? No other feature makes sense if you can't organize your assets. This is fundamental.
