Daminion allows you to create your own custom tags in the web client so that you can address your tagging requirements more precisely.
To create a new custom tag, log into your catalog as an administrator, click the three dots icon in the upper right corner of the web client interface, and select Settings.
In the window that opens, click Custom tag settings.
In the next window that opens, click the Add custom tags button to open the following dialog window.
If the String type is selected, you will need to define the following parameters of your custom tag:
– Multiple values can be assigned to the same file
– Tag values can be hierarchical
– Tag has a limited number of values that can be assigned to multiple files
If at least one of the parameters is selected, the custom tag will be displayed in the Filter panel. If none of the parameters are selected, the custom tag will only be available in the Properties panel.
Click the Create button to create your custom tag, close the Settings window and refresh your browser view.
Please note that Custom Tags can be written to the metadata of the files. Starting with version 7.0 Custom tags can be renamed after being created. However, the name will be only changed in Daminion interface and will not be changed in the metadata of the file. Therefore, please be sure about the name of the custom tag before creating it.
To rename a custom click, right-click it and select “Rename”.
