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

    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.

    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?

  • EQS Design commented
    February 16, 2018 15:49

    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.

    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!)

  • Martin Rommel commented

    I hope improved asset management is not held back to push people into using CMS features which then prevents the export of the website!

  • PS Werbung commented
    April 12, 2018 09:17

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

  • Adam Strange commented
    April 17, 2018 17:13

    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.

  • Rob Saville commented
    April 26, 2018 10:02

    This would possibly be at the top of my most wanted features. Being able to quickly sort through and organise / manage assets, would be a major boost to my personal workflow.

    Another huge upvote for this from me! I can't add any additional suggestions to what others have said already, but I agree with all points mentioned here. As someone whose sites are pretty much entirely made of gazillions of photos, pretty please, I'd love to see this become a priority! Thank you!

    In Backlog. Lol. A request for better ASSET MANAGEMENT in a CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM..... is backlogged. In favor of .. multi-language support. You should see the look on mah face right now. And looking at the "merged" ideas....... it hurts.

    Creating workarounds for basic, yet absent CMS functions is maddening. Ive been working with a client for around 8 months, building their corporate site, and I deeply regret using webflow. 

  • Zen Kick commented
    July 28, 2018 14:28

    Backlog? What the heck, guys. I was just getting back into Webflow and considering recommending it again to my clients. But, if we still can not delete and organize images, and use existing assets in collection records, then I can't sell this for anything but the most basic sites. Gah.

  • Davida Pitts commented
    July 30, 2018 04:46

    ugghhh...came to the wishlist specifically to see what the status of this was currently....and to my surprise it is backlogged. for the life of me i don't understand why this would not be a priority. it would be great if the webflow team picked this back up and started working on it.

  • Davida Pitts commented
    July 30, 2018 04:49

    also i would think better asset management would go hand in hand with adding e-commerce functionality which is in development. e-commerce sites rely heavily on images and being able to sort, organize and perform bulk actions on them will be really important.

  • Hywel Thomas commented

  • David Wallace commented
    September 24, 2018 14:06

    Putting all assets into one folder is not a good idea. I can't find some graphics because of all the images and other content. The ability to remove and put images into specific folders would help with the number of assets I have imported.

  • Chloe Can commented
    October 23, 2018 07:21

    Seeing all unused asset and possibility of bulk deleting them is a must.

    Also, ability to see where an asset is used

    My website has hundreds of unused images and I have to delete them one by one and I'm not even sure of the ones to delete. This makes the editor very slow and causes it to sometimes crash. I think that as you move towards ecommerce, you'll have to make the editor more robust and focus on this feature. 

  • Julien Vanwinsberghe commented

    Adding directories and detailed view would be very useful!

  • Julien Vanwinsberghe commented

    ability to delete several images at once in asset manager. the two-step process limited to only one delete at a time, slows down my workflow so much... seems like a simple fix?

    My site uses many images. Trying to work with them in the asset manager is a PAIN. If I could at least put them in folders based on my criteria - that would be very helpful. You have done it with the Pages manager, please do this in the asset manager.

    This forces me not to use Webflow essentially.   

  • Jim White commented
    04 May 20:06

    I would say this is by far and away the worst thing about Webflow. I literally avoid using Webflow because of their asset manager. Honestly it is hard to believe it's survived this long without basic asset management. Any site without stock photography is basically pointless to start because of this. Go to Duda and just copy what they do at the very very least and do it sooner than these other pointless upgrades. 

  • Fernando Lins commented

    Please add to this: Importing data and using API we should be able to link to reference or multi-reference. Like this idea: https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-937

  • Joshua Magee commented
    27 Jun 15:04

    Guys, you've got a dedicated user community who really love what you do, but this needs to be fixed as soon as possible.  It is nearly impossible to build a large functioning website (especially ecommerce) without a much improved Asset Manager panel or window. 

    It has been over 16 months since your last update stating that this isn't being prioritized.  Please, recognize what your users are telling you, and jump on this with a sprint (or two or three) immediately.

    Thank you!

    I start new sites by duplicating previous sites that have 1000+ images that I then have to go back in and remove one at a time. Takes forever!! 

  • Mike Dee commented
    12 Jul 21:02

    Any update?

     

    I’m sure there is a comment in here somewhere about it. But we often have clients wonder why there is no way to access existing uploads when changing content in the editor. They have to upload images from their computer.

    Been over a year since the last update, anything new on this?

  • David Sawkins commented
    19 Jul 11:05

    This asset manager is a real killer. I've got one tourist based client that has 50 odd lightboxes throughout their site each with at least 25 images in. 1250 images and no folders or bulk actions, not to mention having to put each image into the lightbox one at a time. Come on, this has got to be sorted.  

  • D2C commented
    19 Jul 13:38

    I can not believe that it's been years, and we still do not have news about it ... they're prioritizing big things but forgetting the basics, what's the point of having big things that we're not going to use all the time if we do not have the basics we use all day?

  • Dario Covino commented
    30 Jul 11:37

    Please DO THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, every single project I have to work with using webflow is embarrassingly unoptimized assets-wise when engineers and such analyze the performance of the website.

     

    This issue can singlehandedly drawback the performance and overall size of all websites created with webflow.

    Whatever transpires needs to be consistent across the Designer and the Editor.

    • Editors can't replace images with existing asset manager images.
    • Editors can't edit alt text of new and existing.
  • Tiada Guru commented
    05 Oct 20:41

    Oh, God. This is the absolute worst file manager on ANY web app I've ever used.

    It's a...list. That's it. No folders, no renaming, and you cannot select more than one image? Is this a joke? Did you accidentally ship one of your VC prototypes?

    Terminal and the Windows Command Prompt have better file management. Webflow, this is a stain on your brand. Get your priorities straight. 

    If Webflow can only ship "search' after 18 months, Webflow needs to ask, who is Webflow's target audience? One-page landing page designers? If it's anything more, it's numbingly out-of-touch to thrust this should've-never-left-the-drawing-board trash can onto your customers.

    On September 2019, Asset Manager remains a trash can of files. Hope you can find the one SVG you need out of the hundreds of images you're using. This glaring, even disrespectful oversight, utterly handicaps the enormous power of CMS. Just....very off-brand.

    How...have you shipped anything else while leaving Asset Manager like this?

    For shame, Webflow. Be better.

  • Steve Neville commented
    22 Oct 23:21

    The fact you can't replace images in the Asset manager is an absolute joke. Please can you finally do this work? It's a huge time waster and means now it will take me hours to replace images on my site for optimisation.

  • Jordan Stambaugh commented
    23 Oct 19:32

    All I need is being able to bulk DELETE photos. Literally just a "check all" button -> Delete. I LOATHE duplicating a project and going through one by one to delete each image and uploading the new ones.

    Not to mention that to currently delete 1 asset it takes 3 very precise clicks. Clicking hundreds of times to delete media from a website is absolutely nonsense, Webflow.
