Managing Libraries

Multi-Library is a new feature available to customers on the Organizations or Enterprise Tier. Multi-library allows for much greater flexibility and team enablement than ever before. Tiled users can now be apart of multiple Tiled libraries with different permission sets in each library.

This is a great feature for companies that have different teams or departments that use Tiled, but may not need to access other departments' microapps. In other cases, a designer may need access to multiple departments' libraries in order to create microapps for the teams they work with. Multi-library is a great solution for both scenarios.

Add a new library

NOTE: Only Account Admins can add new libraries.

Adding a new library is as simple as clicking a button. On the left navigation bar, click the "Create Library" button.

This will bring up the create library pop-up, where you can name your new library (this name can always be changed in the "Library Settings"). Once you have named your library and, optionally, changed it's library avatar. Click "Create"

Your new library will appear at the bottom of the list of libraries in the left navigation bar.

 

Change a Library's logo

A libraries logo can be changed in 2 places. First, when creating a library, you have the option to change the logo. (See video above.) Simply hover over the pre-made icon and click to upload a new logo. The dimensions should be a minimum of 150px x 150px.

Second, under a given libraries settings, you can select "Change" under customer library avatar.

Delete a library

At the moment, libraries can not be deleted. If you have a business case where a library needs to be completely removed, please create a submit a ticket and our support team can assist you with this request.

Add users to the account.

Users can be added to the account in two ways.

Option 1: Manually

  • Account Admins have the option to manually add users via the Account Settings -> User Management tab

    On this page, Account Admins can click the blue Plus icon in the top right to add users to the account:

    This will bring up the Create New User Modal. The admin will need to specify a name, an email, and at one or more libraries to add the user to. (Note: at least one library is required, and users will be added initially as base users. This can be modified later from the same User Management Screen.)

    There is also the option to make the user an Account Admin, only select this if you want the user to have full account access and administration rights.

Option 2: Via SSO

  • The other option is for users to be created automatically via SSO. 
  • First you will need to enable SSO on the Account General Settings:

    • mceclip6.png

  • Once you enabled SSO, make sure all the relevant SSO info is filled out. 

  • Next, make sure you have enabled Auto Provisioning new users (down the page slightly)

    • mceclip7.png

  • This will ensure that new users will be placed into a default library if one is not specified in your externally SSO directory

Clone (duplicate) a microapp to another library

  • Cloning a microapp is a simple as a few button clicks, to start, click on the three dots in the top right corner of the microapp you want to duplicate, then click the "Duplicate" option.

  • Then select one or more libraries that you want to duplicate the microapp into and click "Duplicate"

  • The microapp will then appear, unpublished, in the selected libraries. 

  • NOTE: while it will look the same, this is a completely separate microapp, similar to making a copy of a document. Thus, changes to the original microapp will not populate in the duplicates and vice versa.
