Consumers have view-only access, meaning they can't edit, upload or manage content. They do have downloading, sharing and limited collaboration privileges.

They can view:

  • Assets marked Approved (if there is no approval process in place, all assets will be treated as "Approved")
  • Assets in portals that they've been granted permission to

If an asset has a watermark applied to it, Consumers will only be able to see that asset with the watermark overlay.

Consumers can:

  • download files
  • add comments
  • assign content to albums
  • follow assets
  • view metadata
  • share to various platforms

Consumer privileges can be edited by admins under Settings > Users & Groups > Privileges.

Here is a list of all the Contributor Privileges:

When creating a consumer user, the admin may set an Expiration Date for that user if required.  This Expiration Date can be edited or removed any time in Settings > Users.

You will have a limited number of Consumer seats as determined by your account plan. To add additional seats to your account, please get in touch with your account manager.
