Assets Tree Context Menu

Prerequisites: User groups must exist for adminstratiors to configure the Group option. See Creating Groups for details.

As an administrator, you can determine which actions display to users in the Assets Tree context menu.

If individual groups have no context menu configurations set, then that group receives the default context menu configuration. If individual groups have no configurations, then the groups receive the default context menu.

For example, you may specifically not want Translation group members to remove assets from workflows. You can hide the Remove from Workflow action in the Translation group's Assets Tree context menu.

To configure available Assets Tree context menu actions:
  1. Navigate to Administration > System Options > CMS > Assets Tree Context Menu.

    Select Default or Group

  2. Choose one of the following steps.
    • Select the Default option. This context menu displays to all users.
    • Select the Group option and select the group from the drop-down list. This context menu displays to members of the selected group.
    Additional Information
    If you configure multiple options, save your changes after configuring each option. If you switch from one option to another without saving, you lose your changes.

    If groups have saved context menu configurations, a checkmark (☑) displays next to the group. To clear all configurations for the group, hover over the checkmark and select the Restore Defaults minus (-) icon.

    Restore Defaults

    If you configure the context menu for the Default option and the per individual Group option, each group's context menu automatically overrides the Default option for applicable users.

  3. Select or clear the Assets Tree context menu actions in the list. Selected actions display as highlighted.
    Additional Information
    For example, if you clear Add to Workflow and Remove from Workflow and save your configurations to the Authors group, the Assets Tree context menu hides the actions from Authors group members.
