Hello Pickit admin, we're glad to have you here! Pickit is the world’s simplest digital asset management system, built for the modern workplace. We're convinced it’s the easiest way to organize, optimize and share your company images, documents templates and brand assets in Microsoft 365 and on the web.

Reference

Pickit uses some terminology that might be new to you, so we put together a reference of terms and definitions that will appear throughout this guide. 

Add-inCan also be referred to as an app or plug-in for Office. When using Pickit in PowerPoint, Word, and Teams you will be using the add-in interface.

AdminA Pickit admin can upload images, invite users, style the image bank and assign user permissions on the web. We do not limit the amount of admins per image bank.

Collections – All images live in a folder or album type environment that we call collections. Typically images in a collection share a common theme or concept

Collection GroupThis is an organization system where you can easily group together multiple collections that share a common theme or concept.

Company Images – A private and secure Azure-based image bank where admins can upload and share internal images. There is no restriction on storage.

CurationThe process of styling and organizing your image bank for a strong visual impact.

Featured Collections – Collections can be promoted into a more visible location of the image bank. Featured Collections appear near the top of the add-in with square shaped thumbnails. If there is a Hero Collection, the Featured Collections will appear below the Hero in the add-in. 

Hero Collections – Collections can be promoted into a more visible location of the image bank. Hero Collections appear at the top of the add-in with a rectangular shaped thumbnail.

OwnerWhen Pickit creates an image bank we need to assign an Owner, which is just the original Admin for the image bank. You have the exact same rights as an Admin.

Pickit CuratorYou have the option to activate a Pickit Curator. When activated, this allows a Pickit employee to log in to your image bank for curation assistance and support.

Public Images – A database of 1 million+ HD images that are royalty free with no usage restriction. Each image has been hand picked by a team of image professionals at Pickit. Admins can allow users to see Public Images or disable access.
