Integrate LinkrUI for Microsoft Office

  • Updated

View LinkrUI assets

You can view your assets in thumbnail and list view. The view buttons are at the bottom right side of the panel.

The LinkrUI panel displays only assets supported by the application running LinkrUI.

It is not displayed if a specific file type is supported by the Optimizely Content Marketing Platform (CMP) library but not supported by the application running LinkrUI.

Thumbnail view

LinkrUI displays assets in thumbnail view by default, creating a visually intuitive approach to content discovery. On the thumbnail, you can see an asset preview and asset name. Hovering over the asset's thumbnail displays the file type and offers an actions menu button.



List view

List view optimizes space and consolidates important asset information, including small previews, names and file types, at a glance.



Details view

View Asset Details displays an additional view section with the details of an asset.

To open and close the Details section, click View Asset Details. It is available in thumbnail and list views.



Actions menu

The Actions menu gives you the following options:


  • Place – Use the selected asset as an item in the document or deck you are working on.
  • Open – Open the document or deck as its file.
  • New Version – Replace the CMP Digital Asset Manager (DAM) version with the active document or deck. 


You can search your assets based on a search term. When you enter a search term, LinkrUI sends the search request to the DAM and retrieves the DAM search results back to LinkrUI. Use the search bar on the top of the panel to find assets.

Search results in LinkrUI are identical to those in the CMP DAM.



You can refine your selection of assets and filter for the asset you need by type by clicking the filter button.



Upload assets

You can upload new assets directly into the DAM from your local file system. To upload a file, open the menu and select Upload New Asset.


On the Upload New Asset page, you can:

  • Give the file a name that is different from the original file name.
  • Specify the destination folder in which to upload the assets. (DAM specific)


After you set fields, click UploadUpload Progress page is displayed

You can close the Uploads window to continue working with LinkrUI while uploading assets. To track the upload progress, click the menu and select the Uploads option.
