Asset Library


The Asset Library simplifies collaborative publishing and asset management within Sprout’s publishing suite on the Enterprise plan. You can easily organize, edit and publish assets from a central location to create and deliver visually engaging social posts. Media can be attached directly from the library or from Compose.

Using Assets


Configuring Asset Library Settings

Asset Library settings can be accessed from the gear (  ) icon in the upper right corner of Sprout Social and clicking Asset Library.

Choose to limit assets by groups or show assets across all groups. When selecting limit assets by group, the asset will only show in the group you upload it to.  If an asset is needed in multiple groups, but not all, upload it individually to each group. Adjustments to this setting are not retroactive and will only take effect after the new setting has been selected.


Managing the Asset Library

Managing assets can be done from Asset Library located in the Publishing tab.

Choose how you would like to view the Asset Library, by toggling between the grid view and list view with the (  ) icon.

The grid view allow users to view all assets with large image previews.


The list view allows users to view assets by assets detail, including a small image preview. Sort assets by NameUploaded ByUploaded Date or File Size by clicking the specific column header.


Uploading Media

The Asset Library supports JPEG, PNG and GIFs (maximum size of 8 MB). 

For videos, it supports MOV and MP4 (maximum file size per video upload is 1.75 GB).

Select +Upload and choose an image (or multiple images) from your desktop to upload.

Enter a name, description, and tag if necessary.

Note: Sprout’s tag management system is universal. The tags available are the same ones available for your group in the Smart Inbox and when composing messages.


View Assets

Click an asset in Asset Library to view the name, description, who uploaded the image and when it was uploaded.

Other asset information available includes file size, extension, who the last person was to attach the asset to Compose and when. Also, send the asset directly to compose from this view.


Editing Assets

Images in the Asset Library can be edited with Sprout's image editor. View an asset and click the pencil icon to edit it. 

The edited image will be saved as a separate new asset, while the original will remain unedited.


Using Assets

After images or videos are uploaded to the Asset Library, they can easily be attached to new messages from the library itself, or when composing a new message.

Send Asset to Compose

Select the asset(s) you want to publish by clicking the checkbox in the upper left corner of the image, then select Send to Compose.


Compose: Attach from Asset Library

When composing a new message, click the camera icon and choose Asset Library.


Select the asset(s) you'd like to attach to the post and click Send to Compose. The library can be viewed in list or grid format in this view.
