Brand Management

Brands represent defined constructs of where associated content is attributed as branded packages. If you have multiple distinct properties you want to upload content to, this is one way they can be organized. These brands will show up as places to upload and manage content (See MANAGE user guide).

The user can also filter by the title of the Brand, status, and sort by date when managing an account with a larger number of brands.
