Assigning metadata

Metadata is used to label your content and describe it in order for other websites, search engines and your organization’s website itself to understand what your content is about.

Standard Metadata consists of keywords relevant to your form along with a description of what your form is about.

  1. If you don't already have the form open, begin by finding your form in the form list and click on the title to open the form.

  2. With the form open, you'll be on the Pages tab and will see the form structure. Click the Details tab to open up the form details.

  3. Click the button Assign Metadata to open the Assign Metadata popover.

  4. Now enter some metadata into the fields:

    Additional Keywords: this field should be used if you feel that when you assigned navigation categories to your content, they did not effectively describe what your content is about (when entering additional keywords make sure they are all comma separated and are all entered in lower case).

    Description: this field is the only mandatory field and all information you enter should be in lower case and contain no punctuation. Here you are required to type a general description of what your content is about. Remember when you compose your description to consider writing it from the point of view of your customer. Imagine if they were to perform a search what would accurately summarize the topic of your content.

  5. Click Assign Metadata to close the popover.

  6. Click Save to update the form settings
