Besides getting ready for the 6th annual Widen Summit this October 16-18 (that you can still register for, by the way), we’ve been up to quite a lot here on the software development and UX side over these last few weeks, and we think you’ll like what you see in the Widen Collective! As always, feel free to reach out to the Central Support team or your customer success manager if you have any questions. We value your feedback.


Resolved Issue

  • The issue with users receiving an error when registering their Box account to download assets from the Collective has been resolved.


Quickly Download Single Assets

We’ve simplified the downloading process for individual assets in portals. After you select to download, simply select which the file type you’d like and it'll automatically download!

New Grid Layout for Collections in Asset Sections

When you add collections to a portal, you'll see a new layout with a cleaner look that you can easily navigate. Each collection is represented by a single image that can be selected and cropped.

Note that previous collections with four-card previews will exist on portals you created prior to this update.

Want to update the current layout to the new collection grid layout? Follow these instructions and you're good to go!

Searching for and Selecting Multiple Collections

You can now search for and add collections to asset sections much the same way you add assets. Add collections, then select them individually, hold shift and click to select a range, or drag your mouse over multiple collections to select a range.


Sort Collections

After you’ve added collections to the portal, select a sort order and pin collections you want to give prominence to.


Redesigned Mobile Access Page

The page to enter an access code to view a portal on a mobile device has been redesigned and streamlined to be viewed easier on the device.
