Uploading PDFs, images, fonts, videos, audio files, and any other assets to file manager will equip you with all of the materials that you need to build out your pages, posts, and emails. Use the file manager to upload and host your website's assets on HubSpot's content delivery network servers. 

This article walks you through how to upload your files and manage them directly in the file manager. You can also upload files when editing your content via the content editor.

Create folders to organize your files

In your HubSpot Marketing Hub Basic, Professional, or Enterprise account, navigate to Marketing > Files and Templates > Files. You can create a new folder by clicking Create folder in the top right.

 

Upload files to a folder

Now you can open the folder you've created by clicking on its name.

There are two ways to upload files:

  • Click Upload files to browse your computer's hard drive for files to upload.
  • Drag the files from your hard drive to the open file manager window and release.

It's possible to upload multiple files, and upload time depends on the size of the file. If you have any trouble uploading your files, check to be sure you're uploading a supported file type.

 

Get file URL

The quickest way to copy the URL of a file is by clicking Copy URL from the sidebar of the file manager. Files are hosted on HubSpot's content delivery network system domain by default, with cdn2 appearing in the domain of the file URL. You can update your settings to host all files on one of your connected domains.

 

Managing your files

Review a list of features you can use to manage your assets in the file manager. To learn more about the Stock Images tab, check out this resource about the Shutterstock integration.

Search for files

You can use the search bar at the top of file manager to search for any file or top-level folder. The search is not limited to the folder that you are currently viewing.

Replace files

You can replace a file in your file manager by clicking on the file name. Next, in the right sidebar, click Replace. Since HubSpot files are hosted across a content delivery network that loads your assets from all around the globe, after you replace a file, you may sometimes see the cached version of the file for a period of time.

Move files

You can move a file in your file manager by hovering over the file and then clicking Move.

Choose the folder that you want to move the file to and then click the Move button to finish moving the file.

Archive files

If you want to hide a file from appearing in your file manager, but not delete it permanently and have it still be accessible at its public URL, click on the file name and click Archive in the right sidebar.

To see a list of your archived files, you can use the drop-down menu at the top of file manager to view Archived files.  

Delete files

You can permanently delete a file from your file manager by clicking on the file name and then selecting Delete in the right sidebar. You'll be prompted to confirm your choice and click Yes, delete file.

Clone and edit

For images, there is a Clone & edit option. This creates a copy of your file you can modify in the photo editor.

Export all files

You can export a zipped archive of all of your files, too. Just click on the Export button at the top of the file manager and provide an email address for us to email a link to where you can download the zip file when it's ready.
