The Add Asset option allows you to upload items such as images and CSS for use in creating your styles and product marketing. You can upload items by selecting a file or providing a URL.

Uploading Assets

To upload an asset:

  1. From the Marketing menu, select Assets, and click Add Asset. The Add New Asset dialog appears.
  2. Use one of these methods to specify the file to be uploaded:
    • To upload a file that is located on your computer or a network drive, select File, and then use the browse options to locate the file.
    • To upload a file that is hosted on a Web server, select URL, and then enter the URL of the file.
  3. If you want the current upload to overwrite an existing file with the same name, select the Overwrite file of same name check box. If this check box is not selected, the system will prevent you from uploading a file whose name already exists in the assets list.
  4. Click Save.

  • Within your styles, you can reference the asset by using the following format (replace items in red with your own values):
