Using Shared Preview Thumbnails Metadata

Feature availability 🛈
⭕ Personal ⭕ Shared ✔️ Suite

Asset preview thumbnails are also part of the shared content metadata derived from the asset content. When the user uses shared content metadata, all preview thumbnails get sourced as already available metadata from the cloud storage enabled for this feature.

Since the preview thumbnail represents the asset content at the moment of the metadata harvesting, which isn't the present moment, the current state of the asset content on the particular user file system may already be different. Therefore, the preview thumbnail may be inaccurate. 

If you want to make sure that all asset preview thumbnails in your Connecter instance are in sync with the current state of the assets' local content, go to Settings > Preferences and uncheck the "Use shared content metadata" setting, which will tell Connecter to use the metadata it gathers by processing assets' content locally.
