You can upload assets from two types of sources: local storage, or cloud storage.
You can upload assets from any source that you can access from your computer, including internal drives, network drives, external hard drives, thumb drives, optical drives, and SD/XD cards. If you can access a file from Windows File Explorer or the macOS Finder, you can upload that file as an asset to Extensis Connect.
To upload from a local source:
Click Upload and choose Local Drive.
Select files to add to Connect.
Connect lets you upload asset files from Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive.
To access a cloud storage service:
Click Upload and choose a service.
If prompted, sign in to your service account.
If prompted, let Connect access your service.
Box and Google Drive each open a pane within Connect, while Dropbox opens a new browser window or tab.
In your service window, select one or more files.
Click the Select button (✔ in Box or Choose in Dropbox) to upload those files to Connect.
Unsupported cloud services
If you need to upload assets from a cloud service that isn’t supported by Connect (such as iCloud Drive), temporarily copy the assets locally, upload from your local drive, then delete the local copies.
Be aware that some services, such as iCloud Drive, will move files (not copy them) when you drag from one drive to another.
