Here at Brandfolder, we believe that brand management should be easy and efficient. That’s why we’re so excited to announce two new features to help you improve your workflow: downloadable color palettes and exportable event feeds!

Read on to find out how you can download your brand’s color palette right into Adobe design software and export your Brandfolder’s event to a CSV file.

Downloadable Color Palettes

Downloadable color palettes make it easy for designers to create accurate, on-brand designs in Adobe design software and wherever they use CSS. Without having to request, send, or individually add specific brand colors, both brand managers and designers can save time and get back to doing work that matters.

How to Download a Color Palette:

1. Inside a Brandfolder, head to the colors sections and select any number of colors you’d like to work with.

Export Event Feed

Our exportable event feed makes it possible for brand managers to gain a comprehensive understanding of how their brand is being used.

Admins of enhanced and enterprise Brandfolders can export a detailed CSV report of their event feed to see when, where and how people are using their brand assets.

How to export an event feed:

1. Within the Brandfolder of which you are an Admin, select the Admin button and choose Analytics & Events.Improve Your Workflow With Brandfolder :: Events and Actions :: Brandfolder2. Select the Download All Events (CSV) link.

Event Feed Export Tips: 

Action will tell you which type of action took place within the asset.

Eventable Type will tell you which type of artifact prompted the event to occur. Such events include:

  • Asset
  • Attachment
  • Brand
  • Invitation
  • Link
  • UserPermission
  • Subscription

Examples

  • Eventable Type = Brand and Action = Show will show you all views your Brandfolder has received.
  • Eventable Type = Attachment and Action = Show will show you all downloads of an asset’s attachment.
