We're happy to announce the release of MediaBeacon 20.0. Check out what's new!
It’s a struggle to get users to fill in the data you need to describe your assets and ultimately, to make them easily searchable for users. In MediaBeacon 20.0, we’ve introduced Dynamic Forms to help guide users through the data input process by only showing them the relevant fields and values at the right time.
The new Dynamic Forms in MediaBeacon allow for rules-based field visibility and editability controls. Each metaform now has Custom Metaform Rules to configure the initial form view, and how the form will update based off of filled in criteria.
In addition to the form rules, Dynamic Forms also allow for hierarchical data sets to be split across fields. Each field is aware of the others to ensure data writing is seamless and easy for users.
Your data can be complex, but it doesn’t have to be for your users. Using the Dynamic Dictionaries in MediaBeacon 20.0, you will be able to organize on your hierarchical data by assigning different levels of your taxonomy to specific fields.
To support the Dynamic Forms functionality, MediaBeacon 20.0 Dynamic Dictionaries keep hierarchical data correlated across multiple fields. Dynamic Dictionaries can be created from importing a standard CSV format.
In many cases the data you’re asking your users to input is repetitive. In MediaBeacon 20.0, we’ve introduced Metaform Templates to help automate this data writing process. Your users will be able to pick the template they want to use, see all of the autofilled values it will write, and update specific values as needed. Less time spent on writing data, happier users.
Metaform templates can now be created from the Create – Metaform Template menu. Once the data for the template is input, it can be shared to groups and users, to simplify the writing of commonly used data.
