Modify metadata using the visual interface


In case you need to modify metadata for multiple files in your project, you can do so by exporting metadata from all files in your project. The metadata are stored in a manifest file which you can download, change values for the metadata fields and then upload it back to the Platform, thus applying changes to metadata in all of your project files. To export metadata to a manifest file: 1. Navigate to your project. 2. Click the **Files** tab. 3. Click the ellipsis menu. 4. Click **Export metadata manifest**.

Choose the location to save the manifest on your computer. 6. Click **Save**. After saving the manifest, you can make the required changes to the metadata and then upload the file back to the Platform to apply the changes (see below). ##Applying modified metadata to your project files To apply changes to metadata to all of your project files: 1.
