Automatically Prefill and Empty Text Metaproperties for an Asset

You can automatically prefill or empty Text and Date metaproperties when you select a metaproperty option that belongs to a Single select or Multi-select metaproperty.

For example, when selecting the Restricted Use for the Restrictions metaproperty option, you can ensure that the Disclaimer metaproperty is prefilled with the desired disclaimer text. When someone edits the asset and changes the Restrictions metaproperty from Restricted Use to Free to Use, you may want the Disclaimer metaproperty to be cleared.
