Emailing bulky files is a thing of the past, as ResourceSpace allows you to share assets both internally, and externally, without compromising security. You can also encourage the formation of collaborative communities by using shared resource collections.
- Let’s get social
ResourceSpace knows that sometimes you want to share your creativity with a wider audience, and that’s why we support easy publishing to social media channels; you can export to your favourite platforms, such as YouTube, WordPress, Flickr, Drupal, Joomla and many other CMS systems.

Once you’ve compiled the perfect collection of images or produced a show-stopping video, make your work available to view on external sites by embedding slideshows or video content. The Knowledge Base offers simple instructions on producing slideshows and embedding videos to third party sites.
- A community that contributes
Your users can contribute resources, which can then be reviewed and approved by your designated admin. Once available to others, you’ll have a system of user-generated content that encourages members to participate.
Protect and secure files with advanced privacy settings.
- Permissions you control
With ResourceSpace, you can always monitor and oversee the viewing and use of your assets. Assess and approve user uploads, allocate access, and generate secure URLs for third party sharing.
- Enterprise Single Sign-On
Tested with Microsoft Active Directory and Oracle Directory servers, the LDAP plugin allows users to log into ResourceSpace using the same credentials that they use to log on to computers on the network of your organization. ResourceSpace supports a large number of single sign-on solutions using our SimpleSAML plugin.
- Configure for multiple user privacy
Within ResourceSpace, you can enable multiple users whose resources are kept private from each other. This allows you to create an exclusive environment where collections of assets can be divided from the central hub and given their own restricted access, ideal if you are an individual working across a number of separate client accounts.
Locating your digital assets has never been faster, with comprehensive search accuracy.
- Faster file finding
Minimise time spent searching for files with ResourceSpace’s advanced system. Our accessible search panel is available on every page to facilitate rapid asset sourcing.
- Global search
ResourceSpace’s comprehensive search functionality allows you to pinpoint your assets by geographic location. The system also supports a wide range of languages, allowing you to experience a truly international search experience.
- Searching on your own terms
We offer more than just basic file searching. With ResourceSpace, you can accurately define the terms you require, in a more detailed and controlled manner. Using special search tools such as full string matching and searching by criteria or field value matches, you’ll be able to find what you need, first time. If you’re open to browsing, the wildcard option will bring up words that also contain part of your original search query.
- Intelligent ordering
Search results are intelligently ordered, using previous search activity to suggest relevant resources. This promotes the discovery of higher quality assets, encouraging the utilization of your best content.
Workflow and Versioning
The DAM system that improves the way you work.
- Workflow states
Monitor the status of any given resource at a particular point in time using workflow states. According to the status of an asset, such as live or archived, you can determine who can see and edit the content, and the workflow actions that can be performed.
- Workflow actions
Actions form the links between the workflow states, visible as buttons to those with relevant permission to carry out the action. Whilst some standard actions are provided with the default installation of the plugin, they can also be created, edited and deleted within the Team Centre.
- Ready to revert
If ever you change your mind about an action, our version control tools allow you to enact a simple revert process. In one click, you can undo uploads, or metadata input, functions which are found within the Resource Log - for reverting on a bigger scale, we allow batch undos for an entire collection of resources.
Make your assets work harder by monitoring their performance and usage with reliable data processing.
- Actionable analytics
Assessing and presenting your findings has never been easier - the analytics function of ResourceSpace allows for detailed reporting on a variety of system actions, broken down by user group and filtered by a number of different options. You can add reports generated to your dashboard for easy access.
- Reports you can rely on
With reports created by ResourceSpace, you can track in-depth information about downloads, uploads and views, presented in a detailed table structure. You can see reports directly in your browser, or access them as CSV files for spreadsheet software.
With advanced tagging and categorization.
- Metadata matters
Using metadata as the primary method of organization allows resources to be classified in many different ways at once, ensuring that it can be found via a multitude of different criteria. ResourceSpace utilizes advanced metadata tools to give depth to the structuring of your files.
- Fixed Metadata
ResourceSpace allows you to retain control over the input of metadata by restricting the entry fields that are available to complete. Create drop down lists, radio buttons, check boxes or category trees with fixed metadata selection options to manage the amount and type of metadata that is submitted.
- Embedded data extraction
Exiftool is a third-party tool which allows the data embedded within an image to be automatically uploaded into its resource metadata. This applies to any metadata stored within a file, and the fields that this is applied to can be configured by an administrator.

ResourceSpace provides file previews and conversion for hundreds of image, video and document formats, including page-by-page browsing of PDFs, and automatically generating web-ready video previews.
- Direct download
Resources can be directly downloaded to the user’s computer in the custom size, quality and format that’s required – there’s no need to open third party editing software, as these simple conversion tasks can be carried out in-app.
To retain authority over ownership, watermarks such as logos can be placed over images. Watermarked images can then be displayed instead of the usual thumbnails or previews for selected user groups.
- Automatically transcode
ResourceSpace can automatically transcode your uploaded files to different formats, resolutions, DPI and bit-rates as required – save time by providing your staff with the format they need.
