Lightboxes - New Generation Capture

  • Updated


Enable easier collaboration for front end users with lightboxes.

Lightbox is a Capture term defining a curated collection of assets by the front-end users.


The Lightboxes page provides back-office administrators with a list of Lightboxes available in the system. This is a convenient way for the back-office administrators to access and organise or troubleshoot the collections.




Front and back-office users can easily access the Lightboxes to view and retrieve assets without having to search or browse through the entire asset repository.




Filters within the Lightboxes page allow users to refine and narrow down their Lightbox searches based on specific criteria.

By using a filter, you can streamline your Lightbox management and quickly access your preferred sets within the page.


Filters help you focus on specific subsets of assets, enabling efficient browsing, searching, and retrieval.


How to use filters?

Click on the filter icon to prompt the filter form.


You can filter by:

  • Name

  • Last Name

  • Company Name

  • Email

  • Lightbox Name

Once you have made your selection, apply it to the asset library. This action will instruct the system to display only the Lightboxes that match your criteria.



 To clear your search, remove the filter term and click on the apply button.




Within the Lightboxes page, you have the ability to view, edit and duplicate lightboxes.
