Metadata Import will import metadata from .csv files into Custom Fields.


Before you begin, make sure:

1. The filenames are in the first column of the spreadsheet to be imported.

2. The relevant custom fields are created. (Canto will map the data in the other columns to these custom fields).


To run the import:


1) Navigate to the Settings and select the tab Links & Connections, followed by the sub-tab Metadata Import.



2) Click “Choose File” and select a .csv file with the relevant metadata.



The details of the import will be listed under the Summary section.


*** The values in the filename column in the CSV SHOULD match the filenames of the content in your Canto library. ***


Note: Portals need to be synced from the Settings to receive imported metadata labels. Go to the Portal’s settings and click the “Sync” button.
