Adding asset sources 🎦


This article will give you step by step instructions on how to add asset sources to your account. These assets sources will provide resource options for uploading media to your assets page. 

Asset sources are a powerful tool in CareerArc that allows users to connect to 3rd party asset sources. Once a user connects (authorizes) an asset source, it becomes available to the user within the asset library under the Add Media options on the dash menu. Users can add an asset source to their account by selecting My account > Asset sources.


This will take the user to their asset source list page. Select Add asset source to open the available options for asset source connections. 


CareerArc can connect to the following third party sources:

  • Dropbox 
    • Credentials required
  • Google Drive
    • Credentials required
    • Connects to company accounts only
  • Microsoft SharePoint
    • Credentials required
  • YouTube
    • User provides a YouTube channel URL

Select the asset source you would like to add and follow the on screen prompts to connect the account. For example, if you would like to add a specific YouTube channel as an option for media to include in your assets, select Add asset source > YouTube. Enter the url for the channel you would like to add and select Save. 



Once the asset channel is added, the page will load My asset sources, showing all the assets channels linked to the users account. Users can reauthorize and delete asset channels from this page.
