How to Batch Edit Asset Metadata

Proxy

You can now <strong><em>Batch Edit</em></strong> the Metadata for assets you have selected in your basket.This is a super handy way to update several assets at once and will save you a lot of time.For example you might select several assets that obviously belong to a single Region. You can use BatchEdit to update the Region field for these in a single edit, rather than edit one at a time or resort to Exporting and Importing a Metadata CSV. Another example: You might have renegotiated your Usage contract with a photographer so you can set a new Expiry date for several assets at once.<strong>Here’s how.</strong>

  1. Login as admin and navigate to the Admin console
  2. Select some assets to edit (so they appear in the basket/side panel/favorites).![](https://brandkit.businesscatalyst.com/img/batch-edit-screen-1.png)
  3. Click the Edit selected button.![](https://brandkit.businesscatalyst.com/img/batch-edit-screen-2.png)
  4. Then click the new Batch Edit button at the bottom of the pop-down panel (note batch tag editing has it’s own button and has been available for some time).
  5.  In the Batch-Edit Modal select the fields (e.g. Region) you wish to batch edit. This will display the input fields.![](https://brandkit.businesscatalyst.com/img/batch-edit-screen-3.png)
  6. Make the entries (e.g. New York) required and click Save all changes.![](https://brandkit.businesscatalyst.com/img/batch-edit-screen-4.png)
