Metadata helps to set parameters around how users enter their information in the intranet and makes it more discoverable. It is available within My Hub and CMS applications and enhances our ability to search for data such as profile information of users or the content within CMS (pages, files etc.). 

Metadata is a system Admin application and can be managed by Superusers via the Admin interface.

Certain Metadata fields are set by the system. Administrators with Superuser permissions can create new metadata fields to capture information from Front End users. Once created in the Admin, these fields must  be added in the Front End to a Master Profile in My Hub or to a CMS folder. Users will then be able to populate data into these fields while editing their profiles or while adding/editing folder contents (i.e. pages and files). The information thus entered by users can be searched via the Profile Directory component and the Search component.
