Quick Start Guide for Compact View


Depending on your user rights and the configuration of your portal the Compact View on your side may differ from the Compact View shown in the examples and screenshots of this article.

  1. In order to make use of Compact View some additional portal configuration is necessary. Contact your Customer Success Manager, who is happy to assist you in setting this up.

  2. Make sure Compact View is integrated into your external content system or make use of one of our native plugins that already have the Compact View installed. Technical implementation instructions are available here.

  3. If your company's Bynder URL is already prefilled in the pop-up, click on Sign in. If not, enter the URL of the Bynder portal and click on Sign in. A pop-up will open, which allows you to authenticate to the Bynder environment.

  4. Login to the portal in the usual way.

  5. Use the (smart)filter bar to filter or search for the assets you need. Images, videos, documents and audio files can be added via the Compact View.


    Do you need more information on an asset? Hover your mouse over the thumbnail and click compact_view_icon01.png to open the asset detail screen.

  6. If applicable, use the dropdown at the bottom of the Compact View to select whether you want to add the original file or one of the available public derivatives.


    Example of the dropdown


    • The asset needs to be marked as public in order for the original file to be available.

    • This dropdown is only available when adding a single asset. Depending on your setup of the Compact View the dropdown may not be available at all.

  7. Click Add asset(s) to add the asset(s) to your content page.
