In this article, you will learn how to assign documents (images, videos or PDFs) to a variant. This function allows you to provide variant-related documents while the variant is being produced. Documents are always assigned in ELAM Administration. Documents can be assigned to the variant either under Variants > Open variant > Assign document, or under Documents > Select / re-upload document > Assign variants.
