Get your assets ready to move to your DAM 

So you’re ready to set up home with a new digital asset management tool. Congrats! 🥳

Your assets, however, might not be ready just yet. They could be scattered across your team’s shared drives, tucked away in Google Drive, or sitting hostage in a Dropbox folder.

 But fear not! Whilst you’ll need to spend time collecting assets from your teams, it doesn’t have to be a difficult process. 

This data migration worksheet will help you organise your images and videos ready to move to your DAM. ✨

Here’s a quick guide on how to use the worksheet: 

  • List all the people who’ll need to transfer assets to your new DAM

  • Create a central file location in a tool like Dropbox, Google Drive or a local network folder - add the link to this location in the worksheet 

  • Send this worksheet to your teammates and ask them to fill out the fields including: the assets they're
    responsible for and the location of their assets (if they’ve got files saved on their computer, they can use your central location link)

  • Once everyone’s filled out the worksheet, send this to your DAM vendor ready for migration! 🎉

If you choose Dash, we’ll migrate all your assets for free. We can also work with you to create the best folder structure and taxonomy for your system.

Oh, and we've already filled out the Dash column for you. ✨

In this worksheet, you'll find:

  • A template for building your DAM shortlist
  • Sent to you as an editable Google Sheet or Excel spreadsheet (your choice!)
  • All of Dash's information already filled in for you
  • Bonus: A glossary of DAM terms, in case our competitor's jargon gets confusing 😉
