There’s a new way to notify anyone about the latest assets – it’s called Paths. Paths is a new feature in the Widen CollectiveⓇ that allows you to create custom, automated notifications when assets meet a specified state – no coding required.
As a digital asset management (DAM) admin, you know that the role is no small task. Training users, monitoring uploads, and managing permissions are just a few of the ongoing responsibilities.
One of your weekly or monthly duties is to email users with updates on new content. Until now, gathering the information on new assets, compiling share links, and sending the emails was a manual process.
We want to make this workflow easier for you — and help you deliver those assets faster. So we created Paths.
What can you do with Paths?
Paths is a feature in the Collective that helps you automate email notifications so your people know about the right things at the right time.
Notify users of new assets. Automatically inform sales teams, distributors, or e-commerce groups when new marketing collateral is ready for distribution to downstream channels. Or notify domain experts of new content that requires metadata entry.
Customize your email notifications. Use your brand voice and tone to deliver a clear message.
Insert a variable into your email. A variable automatically pulls information about the event you selected into your email. Variables include the number of assets, asset group name(s), asset share link(s), and asset detail link(s).Do-it-yourself automation. The user interface makes it easy to select a trigger and custom notification – no coding required.
