Create Custom Triggers for Metaproperties

When you upload a file and choose a particular metaproperty value, you might want that value to activate a certain function. For instance, if you pick the value Copyright from the Terms of Use metaproperty choices, it will automatically select the Watermark option in the Advanced Rights section. Another option is to have select Copyright fill in the Explanation Restrictions metaproperty with a predefined text.

Note

Custom Triggers can be set up for metaproperties of the Select and Select2 type.

How do you create custom triggers?

  1. Go to settings-icon.pngSettings > Taxonomy > Metaproperties management.

  2. Click settings-icon.png for the metaproperty, which is the option that should trigger the action.

  3. In the options overview, click the link-icon.pngdependencies icon for the option that should trigger the action.

    Note

    Custom Triggers can be set up for metaproperties of the Select and Select2 type.

  4. In the Custom Triggers section, select the following:

    1. Choose trigger - decide if you want the action to happen when the metaproperty option is selected or deselected.

    2. Choose target - decide which other metaproperty option should be affected by the trigger.

      Note

      Only the Text or Longtext metaproperty options can be selected as targets.

    3. Choose action - decide what should happen to the affected metaproperty.

      • Select - the affected option should be selected. This selection is available for the watermark, and it is downloadable and archived, with limited options under Advanced Rights.

      • Deselect—The affected option should be deselected. This selection is available for the watermark, and it is downloadable and archived, with limited options under Advanced Rights.

      • Prefill—The affected metaproperty option should display a text or date. Select one of the available metaproperty options and enter the text or date. The option must be filled in the bottom text box.

        Tip

        Use the month/day/year format when entering a date.

      • Empty—The affected metaproperty option should be left empty and not displayed in the text. This selection is active for the Text, Longtext, and Date metaproperties. You can use this action if, for example, all other options display text, but this particular option should not.

  5. Select the plus icon to create the custom trigger.

  6. Now, selecting the specified metaproperty will trigger an action. If you want to edit the trigger or the prefilled text in the custom trigger, you must delete it and create a new one.
