Custom Tags in the Web client

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 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.

      Enter the Tag name. In our case it is “Perissions to use”

Select the type of custom tag you want from the drop-down menu by clicking the small down arrow icon. You can select from the following: String, Fractional, Integer, Time, and Currency

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 once created, the custom tag cannot be edited, only deleted.

How to assign custom tags

By default, newly created custom tags are not displayed in the Filter panel. Click the gear icon on the Filter panel and check your custom tag to make it visible.

Create new tags under your custom tags by clicking the pencil icon in the Filters panel. Learn more about how to create new tags here.

Once the tags are created, select your files then drag and drop them to the specific tag:
