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.

    Some of the limitations in Webflow – like this one – make me miss Wordpress.

    The fact that we can't find all the images added in the project inside the Assets Panel is actually very frustrating and as commented bellow, the workarounds are very time consuming.

    This vote was from 6 years ago now. Maybe this year will be the year they add this feature. Fingers crossed

    I agree that this is a feature that should have already been implemented. With the ability to compress files in the asset manager, it is even more valuable. Please prioritize this as the workarounds are very time consuming.

    I spent the weekend learning and experimenting with Webflow. Despite my love for the tool, I was disappointed to find that certain features, such as the ability to select previously uploaded assets within the CMS page template, are not supported.

    HOW IS THIS NOT A FEATURE! Unbelievable. It's such a basic thing I don't understand

    It's absolutely ludicrous that this very basic feature is still on the wishlist five years later. It's one of those little bits of friction that makes me hate Webflow every single day.

    Can't understand why this is not already a feature? 🫤

    This is currently deal-breaking for our organization and discouraging us to move over 50 websites to this platform.

    Micromanaging images in separate folders only to find out your can't use them later is dissatisfying to say the least.

    100%. I just uploaded some images to the Assets tab expecting to be able to use them in my CMS collection, only to discover that there is no way to use those images and I have to upload them again.

    Such a basic function, yall got your priorities crooked.

    It´s just a small feature but I couldn´t agree more. The images we upload directly into the assets folder are curated and optimized but when an editor has to upload it by himself we are missing the control over the image quality and content

    This is an essential feature for our sites. It creates a lot of rework to upload images each time and makes no sense to duplicate file storage. Please please please add this asap!

    I'd love this feature. I added images to my asset manager from another machine, but I need to have them added to my CMS collection now. Only way to do this is download all of these images to my machines then reupload them to the collection. This can be easily solved by adding an asset manager picker to the image upload option in CMS

    I'm working on my first Webflow project for a client and ran into this issue within the first hour of development. I'll join the chorus, this is a critical feature for anyone using collections.
