Batch Editing Asset Data when Adding New Files to the Asset Library
Adding and editing assets as a batch is handy if the assets share similar details. If you are adding more than one item to the Asset Library, you'll have the option to edit items as a batch when you're up to the third step of uploading assets to the asset library.
If the new assets will be stored with the same information and keywords, click the checkbox to activate that shared field. Then add your searchable information into the respective fields. Save your changes by clicking Apply Changes to all Assets.
To individually add metadata to your assets, click the Edit Individually button. Once you’re happy with your changes, finish adding your assets by clicking Next Step to continue adding your asset to the library.
