Default Metadata Values

Aug 3, 2011 at 8:51 PM


This tool is extremely useful for us and we basically use it to tag some columns for multiple documents. 

We have found an issue with Default Metadata Values:  The Batch Edit window displays the default value for the columns in a library and there is no way to set the fields to blank.  Therefore, when trying to update some metadata for a group of documents, we are forced to set a value for columns configured to have a default value.

It would be ideal to have all the columns (including choice or Managed Metadata with default values) showing blank and to update those columns only if a value is set; if not, Batch Edit can keep the value already stored.

Thanks very much.
