Many of our customers have shared that cloud storage services like Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox are an integral part of their day-to-day processes. They have asked for a more seamless way to connect with these cloud-based storage services and simplify syncing of their assets. As a result, we have developed a connector for Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox. With these integrations, users can sync finalized assets from a chosen folder to Bynder for use across their organization. How does it work? Configuration is simple. Configure the connector from within Bynder’s settings, selecting the folder or folders to be served. When an asset is added to the folder or folders configured, it will be sent to the Waiting Room to await admin approval and assignment of metadata.What’s the result? Bynder continues to serve as your one source of truth for finalized assets.Time is the most precious asset we have, with this integration you will no longer have to manually download and then re-upload these a
There are a ton of AI technologies, albeit, most are very new and in beta, out there today. At Bynder, we’re approaching the use and implementation of AI to focus on the actual positive impact a particular AI technology can have on your day-to-day operations. Some things are not applicable for a DAM. For example, Adobe’s Firefly technology which utilizes generative visual AI to create content variations, are great for creative tools, but not for a DAM. We integrate very well with Adobe, therefore, once you create such assets, you can push them into our DAM using the integration, etc. At Bynder, automation and AI (that actually makes your life easier and saves you time) are integral to our products. But we’re not just throwing around AI for AI’s sake- we’re focused on the automations that streamline your workflows throughout the content lifecycle: Create, Manage, Distribute.Create: Studio automates asset creation, localization, and personalization with easy-to-use templates that exponen
Are you using any of the Adobe Creative Cloud products or Microsoft Office 365? This is intended to help you understand more about the LinkrUI integration and its capabilities. LinkrUI is a plugin for the Adobe Creative Suite connecting InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier, and AfterEffects with both Bynder DAM and Webdam products. Users are able to interface with their DAM directly through the Adobe Creative Cloud product. Assets used in projects are synchronized from the DAM, eliminating the need for manual updates of layouts when changes happen.The plugin was created so that users can save time by editing metadata and tags from within Adobe CC and/or Microsoft Office 365, preventing workflows from being disrupted. You can streamline collaboration among teams by automatically finding and fixing broken links.For more information on how to install and enable the plugin, check the knowledge base article Adobe Creative Cloud Integration.How are you using LinkrUI? We want to hear f
“Has this ever happened to you?” You want to view and use the metadata in your assets in outside of Bynder but when you go to download a CSV of your metadata it downloads the physical assets along with the metadata? If the answer is yes, we understand how frustrating this can be. As an onboarding manager, I have heard from many customers asking about this and I’m sure many of you have as well. We are proud to say those days are over. That’s why we recently introduced the ability to download just the metadata information to a CSV without downloading the physical assets. Now, you can view the metadata of your assets via the comfort of the CSV you always wanted without having to constantly download the assets along with it. Downloading metadata of your assets can be useful in a number of ways. Some reasons I have seen customers download metadata of their assets are:For audit purposes. This can allow you to view the metadata of your assets in a clear, concise way via CSV to ensure data qu
Portal User Management UIThank you Bynder, for reworking the User Management interface. This is now far easier to work with.Interface remembers your fields Interface remembers your filtering optionsBefore these changes it was incredible difficult to use this and manage DAM users, if you wanted to edit a user and after you did so, returning back to the main page would reset the page to default removing all of your filters, you would have to reset them. eg. Status -Active/Inactive, Groups and Profile level.Another great improvement, keep it coming.
Hi Bynder community 👋We are excited to announce a new feature that will give you more control over your portal's theming experience. We understand the importance of keeping your portal's look and feel on-brand, and until now, we have been involved in every custom theming request, and there was a cost associated with most of them.With our latest release, we are empowering you to make some changes yourself, without relying on us, and free of charge. We have built three self-service pages that will allow you to manage some elements of your theming experience for free. You can now upload and manage your theming fonts from the Font Manager Page, change primary and secondary colors, choose a font for your headers and body text from the Portal Theming Page, and even change the favicon of your portal from the Favicon Page.We understand that every brand is unique, and these three pages will allow you to personalize your portal to better represent your brand. Moreover, from these three pages yo
In case you missed it, we recently launched an integration of generative AI into our Content Workflow tool to help accelerate creation of text content.Scale and efficiency has always been core to Bynder's value proposition and AI is just an extension of that - so we're excited and proud of this launch and how it will help our customers scale their content creation. I'm sure some of you have mixed feelings on AI - it's exciting but it can also be sensitive. So I want to first assure you that we are taking a very responsible approach to our AI strategy and roadmap. We want to make sure that everything we do with AI will augment and accelerate your processes - NOT replace them. And that is no different when it comes to the launch of Content Workflow's AI Assist. The goal is to help your copywriting and editing teams significantly reduce the time it takes to produce content while keeping control of the final, approved version. If you're concerned with control, accuracy or plagiarism, you'l

I’m super excited to announce that we will soon be launching an almost entirely new creator UI in Brand Guidelines.Outside of just being a far better user experience for our Brand Guidelines creators, this product improvement aims to enable more visually appealing and impactful content and brand experiences for the end users consuming it and lay the foundation for even more flexibility in the future.Key highlights We will be removing the floating toolbars that have been a bit fiddly at best, and downright infuriating at worst, especially when working on small screens. All the layout configuration (page/section and widgets) will happen in the right-hand Settings Panel. Brand Guidelines creators will be able to resize the sections, set margins as well as fully control alignment and padding of widgets. This gives a far better control over the look and feel of the guides and takes guidelines content to another level. We are bringing our modules closer by having a similar interactio
You can now access Bynder’s UCV (Universal Compact View) via a Google Chrome extension. Here’s more info in the Knowledge Base. It brings your assets and collections (and derivatives!) to wherever you’re working without needing to switch to a separate browser to login and search for assets. It’s SO easy to set up- took me less than 20 seconds.
Digital Brand Templates becomes Studio - Stronger capabilities, increased efficiency, and cost savings
We're thrilled to announce an upgrade that keeps pace with your changing needs and consolidates content creation and templating capabilities into a single platform - Studio.Inspired by what our customers are creating and their ample feedback over the years, Studio comes to address the Digital Brand Templates (DBT) pain points and: Offer a more seamless user experience. Increase the productivity of designers and content creators. Diversify the supported content types - allowing you to easily expand your content creation from image content to videos and gifs. How you benefit from this upgradeMore advanced editing capabilities, visibility restrictions, and approvalsThe most common DBT pain points are a thing of the past: The need to re-upload design files when users want to make changes to templates in DBT is solved with edits on the fly in Studio. Limited compatibility between the supported design tools and DBT is resolved with extended support and the option to create designs fro
We are so excited to share that the Smart filter performance just got an upgrade! The Smart filters of the type smart-single (those that have multiple lists) will now load and open faster. What’s changed? Essentially it looks and behaves the same, but now you won’t experience a delay in opening your Smart Filters. We revamped part of the back-end and front-end to load options beforehand, resulting in a speedy page load and instant open. Under certain conditions, it took 8 seconds to load a Smart Filter. We’ve reduced that to instantly, to help increase our user's productivity.Why? We know that delays in Smart Filter performance have been causing headaches and slowed loads and we wanted you to have a better experience! It was more than that initial click of opening a Smart Filter. When users would do ‘clear filters’, re-opening the Smart Filter would again lead to a wait. Another reason we took into account is the growing amount of metadata that we see customers wanting to store inside
Have you always wanted to receive event notifications from Bynder to Slack or MS Teams? Well now you can!
Are you a Bynder Admin and you use Slack or Microsoft Teams extensively? Have you always wanted to be notified in Slack or MS Teams of changes in Bynder, like if a new asset is uploaded, deleted, updated?With Bynder’s new connectors to Slack and Microsoft Teams, we are taking notifications right to these two integral platforms for greater visibility where you work. As a person that is guilty of missing messages in my inbox, I know how important it is for updates to be shared in the channels your teams use most. For me, I live in Slack which is why I’m thrilled to roll out this new notification feature for Slack and Microsoft Teams. Now you can stay informed of new assets or updated versions while ignoring your inbox.. not saying that I promote ignoring updates 😅 @toni.aquino - Group Product Manager How does it work? Configuring the connector is simple. You can do so from within Bynder settings, selecting the event notifications you want to receive as well as who should receive them.On
Hey everyone, Last week the Bynder team did a webinar centered around our Studio product. We covered:Trends in content creation that we’re hearing, specific to the present moment as brands close out 2022, focus on 2023, with the backdrop of a tougher economy and constrained resources. What we hear most often is an objective to reduce agency spend, consolidate systems, and diversify the content creator base. Down economy or not, brands still need to personalize to their most valuable customer segments…its just that now, in order to get there, many brands are reimagining their content creation process. A business case for Bynder DAM + Studio put together earlier this year by GoHealth (image below). They highlighted the need to better enable stakeholders, open up bandwidth for new strategic initiatives, and avoid the need for additional resources. They estimate Studio will reduce the # of creative requests they get by 31%, and that DAM + Studio will allow them to avoid making a full tim

With Studio, one of the newest features that stands out to me the most is Blend modes! Why? While I am no designer, when I saw a demo of blend modes in action I was in awe. It allows users to make more complex and richer compositions. It also increases your ability to recreate specific effects that originate from other design tools, like Photoshop.What does this mean for you? Users can change the look of their visuals by selecting a blend mode that determines how the colors of a layer blend with colors on underlying layers. This is based on their hue, saturation, luminosity, or a combination of these components. Our Product team is most excited about blend modes because it adds yet another powerful tool that designers and editors are familiar with, unleashing the creative possibilities of Studio…Click here to learn more.With 16 standard blend modes, what amazing designs can you create?

There’s a lot of cool stuff on Bynder’s product roadmap. Let’s talk about it! I do appreciate the increased transparency around the product development this year, because I often have onboarding clients who want to know when the features they need will happen, but also because I just enjoy thinking about and using new features myself. Anyway the in process roadmap item I’m most hype for is the integrations with Google Drive, Box and Dropbox. Tile for new cloud storage options: google drive, box, dropboxIf an onboarding client doesn’t already have another DAM, they almost always have Dropbox/Box/Drive and ask me if there’s an easy way to migrate assets from all their myriad folders into the DAM. From what I hear the Drive integration will act like a hotfolder: if you put a supported file type in there, Bynder will upload it to the waiting room for approval.There’s a bunch of other integrations on the way too, Hootsuite, Stensul, Sprinklr, and Microsoft Office. At first I wasn’t sure wh
One of the latest additions and big projects of Bynder is the launch of Dynamic Asset Transformations (DAT) next to the standard derivatives upon upload. Did you know that DAT can be used across multiple integrations? Not just your CMS or website. See an overview of the potential options below: DAT integration optionsOther tools include Marketing Automation, DXP, CMS, PIM, E-commerce and Social platforms.

Have you heard the news? Asset Zoom Slider is now available in Collections! We checked in with our Group Product Manager, @Laurens Kalf, and here’s what he had to say about this feature release. There was a big ask from customers to be able to view either smaller or larger 'thumbnails', previews, in the asset overview in the Bynder asset bank. The reasons for this were different per customer. Some of them wanted to be able to see more, smaller, assets in one glance. Other customers actually wanted to be able to see more detail on their images as they scrolled through their asset bank. Therefore we introduced this functionality first for the asset overview. The response we got was very positive! Thanks to the positive customer reactions, we decided to bring this feature to collections as well since we got feedback from customers that they would like to leverage this same functionality in collections. So I'm excited that we have been able to bring this innovation that is received very w
