Asset tagging screen

The Tagging screen lets you tag the asset with thesaurus terms. Find this screen in Settings  Tagging within the asset menu.

These terms should allow you to classify content according to common terms and can be used in conjunction with the Related Asset Listing Page to display related assets. For more information on Thesaurus Terms and Related Asset Listing, refer to the Thesaurus manual.

Cascade tag changes is selected by default.

If you do not want the changes to be cascaded, deselect this option before you click Save.

Manual cascade lets you cascade any current terms on the asset to all of its child assets. If you have made changes in the tags and weights sections and did not cascade the changes, select Manually cascade schemas and click Save to cascade these settings. Any additional terms set on a child asset that conflict with the ones set on this asset will not be changed.
