Integrate Emplifi with Cloud Storage Providers

With Emplifi' integration with cloud storage providers, the use of PublisherCommunity and Content Collections is easy and streamlined. In Emplifi, you can easily access your shared assets from the following cloud storage systems and searches:

  • Link (URL)

  • Web Search

  • Google Drive

  • OneDrive
    (private accounts only)

  • Box

  • Gmail

  • Facebook

  • Instagram

  • Google Photos

  • Dropbox

  • Bynder

With the easy integration of cloud storage applications directly in Publisher, Community and Content Collections, you can improve workflows and collaboration, without the need to switch from one platform to another. This is an efficient and secure approach to working with content assets across the platform.

Storage Systems and Searches

After selecting either the video button, the camera/GIF button or the album button, all the storage systems will appear in a sidebar:

Depending on the chosen social media platform for publishing, the buttons might vary. For example, for Instagram, there are no GIF or album buttons available - only videos and  photos:

In Content Collections, it is only possible to upload images -Videos, GIFs and albums are not compatible.

  • My Device
    Upload files from your device. Pressing this button will open a new window where you can search through your device’s folders. This option is not exclusive for the integration.

  • Link (URL)
    Include GIF(s) or image(s) URLs by simply copy-pasting the corresponding addresses.

  • Web Search
    You can search for anything here. All the images available for upload are copyright-free, so use them without restraint.

Storage Systems

There are currently 8 storage sources you can choose from: Google Drive, One Drive, Gmail, Box, Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox and Google Photos.

  • To use a source, you will have to authorize the storage system to access the files. For example, you have to enter your Instagram login to have access to the content published.

  • The small ON icons show which logins you are currently using. The login token is not kept for longer than a few hours, so you might have to have to re-authorize the storage system to access the files each day.

  • The small number icons display the number of content you are selecting from each source.

You can then easily upload the content and add it to your post, community response, or content collections. The preview of the photo/GIF will appear directly in the text area.

Finish off by editing the post however you’d like – and don’t forget to preview the whole content piece in the right-hand sidebar. You can generate a preview for Desktop and Mobile here.
