Remove outdated content from circulation and keep it on hand to reference, repurpose, and reuse in the future.

With your entire back catalog at your fingertips, old content can serve a new purpose — giving content creators a head start and generating more value for your brand.

Approval status

Activate and deactivate content with a single click. Assets marked approved are available to everyone. Want to lock something down? Just mark it restricted. Now only users with the right permissions can see it.

Expiration dates

Have time-sensitive content in your library? Set it to expire automatically. Once the expiration date passes, the content is removed from circulation. Only users with the right permissions can access expired files.

Version history

Avoid mix-ups about which version is current. When you update an asset, it replaces the old version across your Canto library. Want to reference a previous version? They're all archived automatically in the asset’s version history.

Cold storage

Have content you don't plan to use in the future? Add cold storage to your Canto library. Assets in cold storage are still visible to administrators and contributors — and retrievable on request.

The versions feature in Canto is a game-changer. The old versions are still there in the version history if we need them, but the current one is always at the forefront.


Canto helps with version control and the ability to retire assets when they should no longer be used. I think it’s a great investment. We use it every day.

Before Canto, it was difficult for us to find and reuse things. Now we have a go-to spot where the whole department has access to a central storage hub that contains multimedia files.
