Once the metadata is defined and indicated in the object’s class, the authors can start using it. Try adding a new plant topic as described in the following steps.
Adding a topic with metadata
Popup the menu on one of the ‘Plants’ folder and select ‘New>Pant topic’. The ‘New’ window is now equipped with a ‘Next’ button. Click on it and you see the available metafields: ‘Plant division’ and ‘Project’.
Selecting the metafield values
The value for ‘Project’ is already selected. For ‘Plant division’, however, no value has yet been selected. If you click on ‘OK’ without selecting a value for this field, you will be prompted to do so because that field has been marked as a required field.
The security mechanism applied to a metafield determines whether a user is allowed to see that metafield or not.
