Asset Status

Overview of the file statuses in Zoom

One of the unique abilities of Zoom is the ability to check files in and out as you are working on them. The following instructions will explain how to checkout a file from Zoom using Asset Browser. Before doing so, it is important to understand the different file-statuses that exist in Zoom.

Status Description
Up to Date There is a working copy of the file on your computer that is currently up to date and the latest version from the Zoom Server.
Modified There is a working copy of the file on your computer that is currently modified and is a newer version than the one on the Zoom Server. This file needs to be checked in to the Zoom Server.
Need to Update There is a working copy of the file on your computer and there is a newer version on the Zoom Server. You need to update
Conflict There is a working copy on your computer that was modified based on an older version of the file and there is a newer revision on the server. Zoom does not know which version is the correct version.
Lock The file is locked on the server. Only the user that has the file locked can edit the file.

Within Asset Browser, it is easy to see the status of the file below the thumbnail of the asset. You will see the different icon indicators indicating the status of the file. If you do not see an indicator next to the file, this tells you that you do not currently have a working copy on your computer.
