There are a few ways to initiate an upload and update the assets in your Library. Incoming files can be uploaded as Assets, Attachments, or Versions. Assets must be uploaded into a folder within a Workspace, whereas Versions and Attachments can be appended to existing assets wherever they are visible.
- Assets are the main source objects in your Library. They are the files you can see and interact with in your library, that Versions and Attachments can append to.
Attachments are files appended to an existing asset(s) that are not processed visually and non-interactive, but are stored and retrieved from the cloud. These could be project-related information, raw files, or other files to enrich the associated source assets.
Versions are files that append to an existing asset that are processed visually and are interactive. Versions superficially replace and inherit the metadata of the asset it's appended to. Versions track retouched assets without using a separate folder, reduce duplicates in your library, and keep filenames uniform.
