When working on multiple files in the Brand portal of Elvis 5 — such as downloading or sharing them — the first task is to find the files you want to work on. Typically these files are stored in multiple locations.
Instead of working on the files in their original location one-by-one or in small groups, you can first add them to the Basket. From there you can work on them in one action.
Figure: Files that are stored in multiple locations can be easily worked on by first adding them to the Basket.
