Create Metaproperty Options

  • Updated

Metaproperty options belong to specific metaproperties and play a big role in your portal's taxonomy. They allow you to classify your assets better and help users find the assets they seek.

Metaproperties and their options are essential to your Bynder taxonomy and should be configured before you upload your assets. You cannot add options for the metaproperties of linked assets, text, and button types. 

For example, if you have a Country metaproperty, you can add countries as options to this metaproperty.

Once you have set up your metaproperty option, you can change them.
