How to create an Audio asset

To create a new Audio asset, within BLOX Assets select +New at the top of the Search Results panel and then select More... > Audio. This will populate the Audio (new) panel where the required information can be completed to build the asset.

 

Audio asset requirements

Audio assets support a wealth of options, but only require the following:

  • Asset title
  • Audio file
  • Section tag


Building the asset

Audio file: Use the dropdown menu to locate an audio file located either on a local machine or Dropbox account. 

Preview: Add an image to represent the audio file within content blocks and search results by selecting +Change and then adding an image from local drive or Dropbox account. 

Authors: Use the dropdown menu to attribute an author to the audio file. The menu will include registered Admin/Normal BLOX users. 

Byline: A Byline may be included. This will appear either alongside the Author or by hovering over the Author, depending on the presentation style. 

Title: Add a meaningful audio title. 

Description: A caption can be included that will appear beneath the audio asset. 

Start Date/time: Use the date/time tools to specify when the photo should be available to readers. 

Display Priority: The default value is null, or 0. Enter a value here to signify higher importance for the day it's published. 

Tags: Within the Sections panel, select +Add and then select the URL the asset should belong to then then choose Save to build the Audio asset.
