Digital content management is the key to staying organized. It is also critical to increasing the speed at which your project advances from development to market ready. FROST enables tagging and storage of assets within its asset repository, allowing them to be easily discovered and used in current and future projects.
Managing & Organizing Your Assets
FROST allows you to assign metadata values to your assets and content. For organizational purposes, FROST’s metadata consists of the following three types:
- Key-Value Pairs – A set of two linked metadata items, where the “key” identifies the metadata (i.e. “Difficulty Level”), while the “value” is the data represented by the key (i.e. “Easy”). These are frequently modeled as lookup tables.
- Tags – Otherwise known as labels or keywords, tags are content descriptors that provide information and descriptive metadata, which are frequently used to simplify searches and build a quick model of the content within a project.
- Taxonomy – The taxonomy is a hierarchy of tags that classifies, organizes, and structures content. It’s frequently used to access and update similar content objects, such as making bulk edits. Examples include: the folder structure on a disk, the Dewey Decimal Classification for libraries, and the table of contents of a book.
Storing & Searching Assets
Uploading media assets for storage is as simple as dragging and dropping into the browser window, or you can quickly upload multiple assets at one time. Once media is uploaded to the repository, it can be tagged and stored for use within your project. This feature also gives you, and others if you choose, the ability search for desired media quickly and easily.
Do you want to allow other users to have access your media? FROST allows for that, too. Marking media as “global” allows others to easily browse, discover, and repurpose your stored media assets in other projects.
