ResourceSpace is logging every time a user is downloading a resource from the system, even one of its available sizes. By default this is not shown on the view page of a resource. There are a few configuration options which can change this behaviour as you will see in the Requirements section.
Find out from the Knowledge Base how to get started with the ResourceSpace Digital Asset Management System.
Resource tools provide options and controls for managing each resource. The options you see will depend on your user group permissions but the view here is what you would see if you have full access to the resource and all system actions.
Resource previews are an important aspect of ResourceSpace as this is the first contact users will have with your resources and is likely to be how they will decide which assests to use. Missing previews are the first thing that should be remedied after upload.
Resource status and access are central to controlling how ResourceSpace users interact with resources. The Status determines whether the resource can be found or edited by users, the Access controls which users can download the resource.
Resources and Resource Collections each offer a 'Share' option which allows them to be shared with other users, as well as with non-users of the system, to allow greater flexibility of use.
There is a list of options available to you from the collection actions dropdown menu. This menu is present in the collection bar and from the "Manage My Collections" page, as well as on the search page when viewing resources in a collection.
If you want to have an quick reference overview of what is in a collection, it can be useful to make a PDF contact sheet which can then be printed or downloaded. Simply choose the "Contact Sheet" option in the collection Actions list.
Special search terms help users to find content in a much more specific and controlled manner, either through giving them extra tools or using a prebuilt search.
Allows you to embed Document Resource Previews on another website using a short HTML script. The script is generated by doing the following: Browse to the Resource with the configured resource type (Ask your administrator if you are not sure) that you wish to embed on another site.
Enables upload of multiple image files as a single zipped resource, with video preview and download. This allows collections of images to be kept together within the system, such as animation frames or sequenced shots.
The video splice plugin allows users to trim individual videos and to merge videos together within ResourceSpace to create new, separate files. Version 9.6+ Trimming videos The trim tool allows you to easily select portions of a video to be recreated as a new video file.
The way users access and interact with resources is easy to control and modify by User Group Permissions. Although configuring user groups is the responsibility of a system administrator, for those managing resources it is important to understand the implications of these user permissions with regard to resource access.
When users have restricted access to a resource they must place a request before they are able to download it, what happens with the request depends on the 'request mode' setting on the user group.
As you will have seen in the Concepts section, well organised metadata is central to working with ResourceSapce, and a key way to arrange your metadata for maximum relevance is through resource types.
Within your fixed list metadata field there may come a time when you need to add, remove or edit some of the options, which you originally created. To do this, simply edit the field and choose the "manage options" link.
The default user groups are: Administrators : almost everything, except System Setup (aimed at your internal resources team) Archivist : can edit resources in the 'waiting to be archived' and 'archived' states only.
Advanced options are ordinarily hidden from view to make the user group page easier to use. To view these options, click the " > Advanced options" header above the save button. The following is a list of the advanced options available and what they are intended to do: Parent and child arrangements If you have a complex user group arrangement, it can help to organise them under each other.
This plugin is better suited for administrators and users with elevated permissions in order to obtain the correct information and due to the risk of inserting incorrect data into ResourceSpace. The plugin allows you to edit existing resource metadata as well as to create new resources by uploading a CSV file.
This plugin allows users to create custom video files in alternative formats/codecs. Optionally the user can select subtitle and audio track files that have been uploaded as alternative files for a video resource, thus producing multiliingual variants of videos from within ResourceSpace with no further post-production efforts.

ResourceSpace is able to map between embedded metadata stored in your original files and the metadata fields in ResourceSpace itself. This synchronisation can be two way, so that imported metadata can be automatically extracted into a configured field, but also that metadata added to the resource after import is written back to the file at download.
The 'action_dates' plugin will automatically perform certain actions based on resource metadata, for example, archiving a resource when an expiry date is reached.
This allows you to add opening and closing image slides to a video stored in ResourceSpace. You will need to upload your slides as alternative files for the video resource. Under Resource Tools you will see the Bookend option.

The image banks plugin provides the ability to search external image banks for photos without navigating manually to their system. How to use it Searching an external image bank can only be done from the simple search box and using the new dropdown selector called "Search external Image Banks".
Emails are used in ResourceSpace to notify users of ResourceSpace activity that they may be interested in, such as resources submitted for review, user account requests or resource download requests. By default most email notifications have now been replaced by system messages, however you can still opt to receive emails by modifying your user preferences.
One of the central features of ResourceSpace is the ability to control which resources users are permitted to see and how they are able to interact with them. Setting user group permissions may grant access as limited as resource viewing only or as open as full edit and download rights.
E-commerce functions are available in ResourceSpace to allow users to purchase different sizes of your Resources at set prices. Payments are processed via PayPal. Enabling e-commerce functionality is done on a per user group basis, the user group should have restricted access to the resource they will be buying (either tick permission 'g' to restrict all resources or use one of the 'X' permissions to restrict access to a specific resource type).
When files are uploaded into ResourceSpace they are stored in their original form but derivative files in other resolutions are also created and stored alongside the resource. The default sizes of these derivative files are appropriate for most uses, however you may require a specific size to be available, new sizes can therefore be configured in Admin -> System -> Image Sizes.
ResourceSpace maintains a record of the actions of each user, saved as a log which is accessible in the Users section of the Admin area. These logs record the date and time of user logins, resources they have created, deleted and downloaded, and edits they have made to resources, showing both the previous and new values.
The purpose of the offline jobs function is to delegate slow processes, such as creating a preview for a video file, to another script/process to be run asynchronously. The upload process therefore focuses on getting files into the filestore, later working from a queue for further processing.
This plugin allows you to import files from ResourceSpace directly into Adobe InDesign and Photoshop.
This plugin allows you to choose different formats when downloading files which are generated on the fly.
The Image Text plugin allows the contents of a selected metadata field to be included as a caption when a resource is downloaded. Configuration settings within the plugin allows you to choose which resource types and file extension types the caption should be applied to and which field the text should be extracted from, for example title.
When generating previews using H264 encoding (automated alternatives or just normal previews) sometimes, depending on options used to generate the preview, QuickTime can complain that the downloaded mp4 file is corrupt.
With this plugin enabled acceptance of terms and conditions can be made necessary prior to the download of certain resources based on their metadata. The plugin configuration allows you to select a metadata field value which, when met, will require your terms to be accepted, useful for resources which are sensitive or should be used in certain cases only.
The Resource usage plugin allows users to keep a log of how a resource has been used, along with the usage medium such as Print or TV. Enabling the plugin adds a new section to the bottom of the resource view page where you can click "New usage" to create a new record of where the resource was used.
When we click on a resource we are shown all the available metadata for that resource, and also a list of available versions.
There are various actions that can be performed that will affect the items in the collection, available from an actions menu on the collection bar.
ResourceSpace include comprehensive reporting and analytics capabilities.
You can export data and the configuration file from ResourceSpace for testing purposes This functionality requires offline jobs to be configured and the config option $system_download_config to be enabled first.
