Adding or Updating Your Metadata

Togotiki has dozens of meta-data fields for every piece of content.  The following is an overview of the main meta-data fields:

  • Tags
  • Collections
  • GPS Coordinates and Address
  • Description
  • File Title
  • Common Dublin Core Fields
  • Multiple Date Fields

To access and update your metadata in bulk, go to File Library, then go to List View.  From here you can download the metadata for all of your files.  The instructions tab will explain what is available in each field (column) of the metadata.

The Metadata tab in Excel will contain one row for each piece of media in your account.  The first 3 columns in the tab are “Client Name”, “Client ID” and “Unique ID” do not change or adjust this information.  The instruction tab will help you understand what type of data can be in each column.

This can be an easy way to add or update GPS location data to your files.  You have two choices if you want to update GPS information for your media:

  • Enter a valid address – we will convert that to GPS coordinates
  • Enter the GPS coordinates directly

You cannot use both methods in the same upload.  Use one method at a time it will update every piece of media in the file when you upload it.  If there is media you do not want or need update then delete those rows prior to uploading the file.

Not all of these fields are displayed in Togotiki, but they are used in the Search indexer.  Our implementation team can also create custom UI displays to show this information, if needed.
