Add data set to project direct from bookmark

As a customer, I search the community and find a data set of interest. I bookmark this and add it to my project.

In order to add this as a data asset, have to first download a local copy of it - which can be time consuming and is pointless since I have no need for a local copy.

I then have to upload this to add it as a data asset.

I would instead like to be able to drag and drop the bookmark and have the asset directly created within my project, bypassing the download / upload process via my local machine.

n.b. I can now add the data asset directly from the community, but if I have bookmarked it then all I can do with the book mark is preview or download. I would have to go back to the community and search again to find the asset (bookmark will not take me back to it) in order to avoid the download / upload steps.

    Hey Philip,

    In order to add this as a data asset, have to first download a local copy of it - which can be time consuming and is pointless since I have no need for a local copy.

     

    You can add a data asset from the Community page to a project by clicking the (+) button to the right of the Bookmark button. I agree that this should be possible from the asset's page. 

     

    I think we already have an open issue for this; if we do not, I'll create one.

     

    Thanks
