Restrict access to additional files

Additional files are extra files that you can add to assets. For example, this can be a release form or a price list. You can manage who has access to the files.

Use case

Additional files enable you to link all kinds of files to your assets. The files can contain related images, release forms, or price lists, if your assets is a product. If the information in the additional files is confidential, then only selected users should be able to view the files. That's why you can consider restricting access to additional files and manage access bases on permissions.

  1. Contact your Bynder Customer Success Manager to enable this feature for you.

  2. Go to settings-icon.pngSettings > Users & rights > Permission Management and enable the View additional files permission for the user profiles that should have access to additional files.
