  • I tend to use this screen if I’m doing mass edits that involve copying and pasting the same (or very similar) content over and over
  • The default screen will add metadata for the entire item.
  • Note that first page is selected, metadata fields now blank.
  • Save and Next will open the editing screen for the next item in the list of items. Save and Back moves backward in the list.
  • You can cancel or pause uploads from within the Upload Manager
  • Deletes the item just from the editing mode, not from the entire collection.
  • Occasional bug I run into. Note: if you have shared collections, make sure that someone else isn’t editing it! Also be careful not to do this unless you have already approved and indexed your changes. Otherwise you might lose them. If you meet both of those criteria, then proceed to…

    • 6.
      • Select items for editing, option #1: Select All

    • 11.
      • You will be taken to the screen where you can begin editing your items
    • 12.
      • You can edit fields directly on this screen, but beware of bugs that will lose your changes
    • 13.
      • To edit an item, you can either…
    • 14.
      • … check the item’s checkbox and select “Open in Tab”
    • 15.
      • … . Or you can double-click any of the item’s fields
    • 16.
      • Either option will open the screen where you can edit the item’s metadata
    • 17.
      • Double clicking a field will open a bigger window for easier editing

      • (Example of what that looks like)

      • When editing a compound object, you can also select individual pages and add metadata for each of those
    • 21.
      • To return to main metadata for item, click the name of the item at top of the list of pages
    • 22.
