You can manage formats using the panel either by right clicking on the row or by using the three dot menu

Media Files panel on the asset page of iconik

The formats are presented in the files panel like the following.

If the format is stored on more than one storage, there will be multiple filenames shown next to each storage it's on.

The options available can depend on whether you have the correct roles to perform the action, or ACLs on the asset.
