Checkin Assets

Via Asset Browser

Prior to Zoom 5.1, the process of checking in an asset was referred to as Commit.

The following instructions describe how to checkin assets using Asset Brwoser. When you have made changes to your files, you should see a RED indicator telling you that your has been modified and you need to checkin that file to the server. When you checkin that file to the server, Zoom will analyze the changes you made to your files and send only the changes to the Zoom Server and create a new version.

After you have checked in your file, a working copy remains on your computer until you delink it. Keeping a working copy on your computer allows you to download updates and checkin changes faster as Zoom only has to send the changes in the files back and forth to the server. To remove the working copies from you computer, see  Delink Assets

With Zoom, you can checkin assets that are linked to the asset you have open at that same time you are checking in your asset.

  1. In your Creative App, click the Checkin button in the Creative App.
  2. Check the checkbox With Linked Assets.
  3. Click Checkin.

For additional information, also look at the guides for applications such as Adobe InDesign and Adobe After Effects for more examples.

Checkin and Convert to Working Copy

When checking in a file, Convert to Working Copy copies the file and converts to a working copy in your default working copy folder to continue working on the asset.

  1. In your Creative App, click the Checkin button in the Creative App.
  2. Check the checkbox Convert to Working Copy.
  3. Click Checkin.

Checkin Parent Directory

When importing InDesign, After Effects, or Premiere projects, often you need to import multiple related files at the same time. With Zoom 5.1, you can now Checkin the parent directory of a file from within Creative Apps.

  1. In your Creative App, click the Checkin button in the Creative App.
  2. Check the checkbox Parent directory.
  3. Click Checkin.
