File Metadata

Metadata enables you to organize and classify your content beyond folder structures. Use this to filter or analyze content. Metadata tags are manually created and assigned to files. Upfront maintenance and effort is required to create, assign, and manage metadata. This creates a classification and organization system that fits your content set. At Heretto, we use metadata tags to classify where content is published.

Metadata Types

Taxonomy Metadata
Enforces users to assign only the metadata values defined in a related taxonomy.
Label Metadata
Enables users to assign any metadata value. Labels already used for other files are remembered and suggested.
Text Metadata
Users can create any metadata value. No values are suggested as the user types.
Date Metadata
A date picker is provided to choose a calendar date.
Note: Only Administrators can create and manage metadata. Any user can assign metadata to files or filter the Content Library with metadata.
