Project Keywords


Using project keywords is a powerful way of leveraging common project information. For example, when you tag a project with the keyword of "London", any files you upload to that project will automatically be assigned the London keyword. It's a lot easier to tag 500 projects with keywords than it is to tag 10,000 files. ​

Project Keywords

Project keywords are searchable in the search bar:

They are displayed on the project list page found in the "Browse"->"Projects" section of OpenAsset.

You can also set up a homepage "Browse Projects" widget that works as a keyword shortcut to the Browse->Projects page in OpenAsset.
