Asset Links

Links in Zoom are relations of files as a one-to-many relationship. The link can be used to indicate to a user which files a file corresponds to. For example, an Adobe InDesign document may contain many images within it. Each of these images are links and this relationship can also be seen inside of Zoom.
An important thing to understand with links is that a file can have Links to and Links From. In the instance of an InDesign file, the Links to items are the images. The items that they link from is the InDesign document.

Zoom has automatic integration with application such as Adobe InDesign to read the related links. When Zoom has links related to the selected asset, they show up in the Links panel.

Links can be used with any file-type. For example, it can be used to see the relation between which images or diagrams were used within a Microsoft Office document. It could be used to show which movie files were used within an Adobe Premiere project. It could be used to show which assets were using in an After Effects project.
The link between assets can be created manually within Zoom for assets that do not support automatic link detection.
