Add assets to a product family

Under the Assets tab, there are various options for uploading files as assets or linking assets from Sitecore Digital Asset Management (DAM)™.

To add assets to a product family:

  1. On the menu bar, click Products and select Product families.
  2. Click to open the required product family.
  3. Select the Assets tab.
  4. Click + Add.

    You have three options to select from:

    • Upload files
    • Link items
    • Paste from clipboard

Upload files

Upload files allows you to upload files stored locally or insert links to the images, subsequently used to import the external assets.

  • Upload: allows you to select the locally stored files to be uploaded. Once the upload is complete, click Done.

  • Import links: allows you to insert one or more links to the images. Once done, click Import.

    Warning

    File storage platforms such as Google Drive and Dropbox are not supported.

The assets are then uploaded and associated with the product family:

Add existing items

Selecting Add existing items opens a new dialog box, which offers full-text and faceted search capabilities.

To choose which assets to add to the product family:

  1. Click the checkboxes in the top-left corner of the assets.
  2. Click Add to confirm your selection:

Paste from clipboard

Paste from clipboard allows you to copy assets stored locally or in Sitecore DAM to the clipboard and then past them to the product family.

Note

To use the Paste from clipboard operation, you first need to copy the assets to the clipboard.

In this example, we use the full-text search in Sitecore DAM to locate assets containing the term chocolate as follows:

  1. On the Assets page, enter chocolate in the search bar.
  2. Click the checkboxes to select the desired assets.
  3. Click Show all items and select Copy to clipboard:

  4. Back to the product family detail page, click + Add and select Paste from clipboard.

    The previously copied assets are pasted into the product family. A notification informs you that items are being pasted:
