Who can use this feature?

Only Admins, Content Managers and can see the File Vault

Available on all plans

The File Vault is where you manage the storage of assets for the account. This is typically the best place for an Administrator or Content Manager to upload files into the account. Only Content Managers and Administrators can see the Folders Panel.

You will find two kinds of containers in the File Vault: Folders and Organizers. Folders are the foundation of your storage, they contain files and other folders. Every file in your account lives in a Folder. Organizers contain folders. You can think of an Organizer as a drawer in a filing cabinet, while Folders are the file folders inside the drawer.

You can organize these any way you want, just like folders on your computer. This includes moving them around, renaming them and building folder trees.



The File Vault is only visible to Content Managers and Admins.



Folders are the foundation of your storage, they contain files and other folders. Every file in your account lives in a Folder, all assets are uploaded directly into Folders. When you click on a folder you’ll see the upload icon at the top of the window, and when you're selected on an organizer you don't get the upload icon.


To aid in visual organization, we’ve added Organizers as a way for Administrators or Content Managers to further categorize their top-level view. Assets cannot be uploaded directly into Organizers, they are for visual organization only.
