On Showpad's Online Platform, you can export a list of all the assets in your library and their properties, such as the id, asset name, size, expiry date, tags, in what Experience it's used, the security permissions, the views, likes, and the slug you can use for asset linking.
You can export this information to a .CSV or Excel file to review the content, create a visual overview, and import into other tools.
Note: You can download an example CSV at the bottom of this article.

Do this step by step
Generating the export file
- Click Library in the top menu. If your organization uses Divisions, click the relevant Division.
- Click the Settings button. Depending on the required export format, click Export All to .CSV or Export All to .XLSX. Note that the list will always contain all assets, regardless of how many are displayed on the screen.
- When you initiate an export of your Library assets, you will see a dialog with a process indicator to let you know the export is being processed.
Once processing is done, click Download.
The column names show you what the exported data is all about.
Note: Dates are in ISO8601 format, for example, 2021-09-16T07:50:17Z.
