Organizing Files with Boards

Print Friendly and PDF

Boards are collections of files that help you organize your Digital Asset Manager. You can create personal boards for yourself or group boards to share with others.

Note: While boards do help provide a visible organization, the auto-generated tagging, details, and metadata makes it easy to search and/or filter your entire Digital Asset Manager to quickly identify any file.

Default Boards

By default, Faithlife’s digital asset manager includes three boards. default boards

  • Favorites: Any asset you have personally marked as a favorite.
  • My Assets: Any asset you have personally uploaded.
  • Deleted: Any asset deleted from the digital asset manager by anyone in your group (visible to all users in your group).

Note: Personal boards do not make your linked assets private or hidden to others in your group. Adding assets to a board has no affect on the asset’s permissions. Learn more about setting default group permissions or about overriding your default permissions with asset-level permissions.
