Hi all - another update here: now you can select multiple (or all) of your assets at once in the wide view of the asset manager to delete unneeded files faster. Read about this update in our release notes.
[insert confetti gif] heck yes, it's in development!
This is strongly needed!
Please add a bulk delete option, and a sort by size option, and the ability to organize by folder. The asset manager is too basic for such a great software - We LOVE Webflow. We HATE having to delete a template's assets one by one. It's excruciating. Also, please add a tagging option for assets, too. Thank you!
This feature with all these suggestions would be a very welcomed improvement!
Yes I too think it's really important that the Assets section comes with a basic management system, including:Checkbox system so you can delete more than one file at once
Easy way to rename assets
Folders and subfolders
Ability to delete entire folder and all assets in it
Check box system so you can move multiple assets to a different folder at once
Curious whether this is also going to inlude adding (any reasonable filetype) to the assets as an editor user..
most things said but trying to migrate a site with over 100 press releases... folders would really help... even a sorted by added or by A-Z would help...
API access?? It would be amazing to have that.
Clean up (Remove assets that are not used in the site) is the most important missing feature. And it’s reasonably simple to implement!
In the meantime, a couple "low-hanging fruit" I'd like to suggest that would be extremely helpful:
1) Enable export of assets via "Code Export" – I have a hosted plan, and surpirsed this isn't enabled. But, at the very least if I could export my assets only (not code, CSS, etc), I can sort, organize and optomize them all on my own local machine. Now, I can't even do that. I assume this is "flipping a switch" as it's already there, you've just chosen to disable it based on the plan flag. Please, enable it for everyone till the above improvements are done.
2) In the sort popup, can you please put "Sort by File Size"? Again, that data is "visible" to the platform; I'd imagine you can even have that code done by the front end devs.
Please? Pretty please, with a cherry on top? These should be there already, as the Asset Manager as been missing much love and attention, and is really a basic function that should be optimal in function at this stage. You guys really have the eye-popping wow features "done" at the moment; go back to concentrating on the everyday user needs. Love Webflow most the time, but just want to love it even more all the time :-)
YESSSSS! We love you webflow. thanks for constantly growing and improving :)
Yes, yes, yes! So glad to hear it. I understand building a company and this is always the challenge - which segment to develop first? This had to wait a little while, no doubt, but I do think it's time to place the Assets in "It's Own Panel". It holds a lot of weight during every project, I think building it outside of the current panel would be "Smart".
Place it along the bottom left side, with those other buttons; which I hardly ever use anyway. That bottom left side has a ton of possibility for individual applications, that don't necessarily need to work as part of a panel. Just a suggestion to throw in the pot :-)
Woo-hoo! Exciting news, let's go! 🙌🔥
Let's go! Can't wait for bulk delete!!
Better Asset Management has changed status to: In development 🙌🏼🔥
Love that you're making progress here. Excited to see bulk actions. Keep up the great work!
Love this FiiinnnaallY! :)
Hallelujah! So good to see this move to development.
