Content type groups for asset file types

The Content Type Group feature allows administrators to create a custom group and assign multiple asset file types to it. The group can then be applied to folders etc, in the same way you would apply a standard asset file type.

Once set up, Content Type Groups allow you to quickly assign large numbers of asset file types and their accompanying permissions to folders within your site.
