Bynder app

Managing brand assets across channels is essential for building a strong, consistent brand image. With the Bynder app in Contentful, it is now easier for brand and marketing teams to use the most up-to-date assets together with their published content.

The app is a widget that allows editors to select media by browsing asset collections from their Bynder account. Assets are directly linked into your Contentful entries and can be previewed in Contentful. Once published, any updates made to the assets in Bynder’s DAM are directly reflected across digital channels that are powered by Contentful.

Image Focal Point app

The Image Focal Point app allows you to set a focal point for an image, which you can use to crop assets and optimize them for different devices and screen sizes, such as desktop, mobile and tablet. Learn more.

Authentication and security improvements

IC-2 Security reporting Contentful has recently released several enhancements designed to help you manage access for teams.

Contentful has successfully become a verified, pre-configured SAML-supporting app in the Okta App catalogue. Contentful organizations can now set up SSO even quicker than before. Learn more here.

Users can also now protect their Contentful accounts through two-factor authentication. 2FA verifies users through an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator, Authy, or Duo Mobile. 2FA can be enabled through user settings in the Contentful web app.

And with enhancements to how admins manage roles and permissions for teams, an Org Admin or Owner can now assign space memberships to a team, which is then inherited by every individual user assigned to that team. This makes it easier for organisations to manage and embrace growth, securely and efficiently giving new team members the right level of access from day one.

Build a better editor experience with extensions

Deploying structured content depends on many specialized tools, but working between interfaces and tracking integrations can slow everyone down — especially if editors already swimming in a sea of open tabs.

New Contentful UI extensions allow you to customize the editorial experience and add third-party integrations to your workspace.

Dialogue extensions help users access all their preferred tools within a single interface. See how. bynder demo 40

Sidebar extensions can be used to provide sensitive language check, a preview tool, and more. Read more. screenshot-2-2
