Ability to add images to the CMS from the Asset Manager

When adding images to a collection within the designer, you have the ability to choose existing images which have already been uploaded via the asset manager in addition to the current ability to upload new images.

    Insane that the CMS (a feature that's built for ease of use and controlled prod environment) can't grab images that have already been processed and greenlit within Webflow.

    This really increases the amount of work, both upfront in uploading and organizing images, then later in maintaining and keeping things organized. It would be so, so much more efficient to integrate all assets. While I really have loved learning about Webflow and what I can create with it, including the CMS, this seems like a really large feature to be left unconsidered and untouched for over 7 years now. Not very confidence inspiring.

    This is an accessibility failure. Alt-text for assets are added from the asset manager. However images added to CMS posts do not have alt text nor any way to add it. That means critical accessibility features are missing from Webflow.

    Very much needed feature! I do not want to upload the images that are already there!

    You're kidding? How has webflow even grown to this size without this feature? I keep coming back every 2 years and finally decided to go ahead with a project thinking Webflow is cooked enough.

    Yet here we are. Basic basic basic feature, which devs have been notified of from 2017.

    Does Webflow even care?

    While running through a client handover the other day, I was left completely red faced when someone asked “and I assume we can just add pictures from the media library?”

    I have sold the concept of Webflow to a number of clients over the years, but issues like this keep coming up and makes justifying remaining on the platform and paying for annual renewals more difficult. I love Webflow, but I feel this is an oversight that needs to be addressed.

    Uploaded 200 images into various organised folders to now realise I can't simply select them? Now have to re-upload them and they end up anywhere 😩

    PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE, for the love of God. 🙏 Webflow is so awesome at so many things, but it is just unfathomable we can't do this.

    I cannot add images from assets to CMS nor can I add alt text in the CMS panel to a single image (however, I can add alt text to multi-images). Without this feature I can't make my website fully accessible even on the CMS plan.
