Best practices for organizing your Media Library

How you organize the media assets in your Media Library is down to you. We recommend, however, that you organize them in a way that makes sense to you, allowing you to easily find files when required.

Organize by file type ๐Ÿ“‚

If you only have one, or a handful of Flipbooks, you might want to organize by file type, meaning s separate folder for your images, one for videos, etc.

Organize by Flipbook ๐Ÿ“š

If you have multiple Flipbooks, the number of files in your Media Library can quickly get very large. Consider organizing your Media Library by Flipbook. This means that you have a specific folder for each of your Flipbooks, with relevant media assets housed within subfolders within.
