Multi-file uploading is based on permissions and metadata settings similar to single file uploading. If a user has access to the feature, they will see the multiple assets button on the upload media page.
The multi-upload feature was designed for bulk assets to be uploaded and labeled by power users or remote users. As with single uploading it is recommended, though not required, that each asset be labeled upon entry into EnterMedia.
Select the multiple assets section in the upload area to begin. Files can be dragged and dropped into the folder area or manually located by using the 'Pick Files' button. Depending on the file types being uploaded, and the information available in the file, some of the fields may be set to pull metadata automatically themselves.
Once you have designated the assets for upload you will be taken to a labeling screen similar to the one for the single asset upload. Notice that there is an automatically populated field that includes the file name so you know which asset you are editing. Though the file name can be a metadata field, it is not always labeled in a search friendly way. It is recommended that you only use this field as a book-mark, and designate another field as the primary, such as 'Asset Title'.
Once you have filled in the desired metadata fields, click the upload button on the top left to proceed. The files will be put into a loading queue and made available in EnterMedia as they complete the conversion cycle.
For information on other upload options please refer to: Multi-File Upload, Hot Folders, or Creating New Records.
For information on the metadata options in the upload area please refer to the articles on metadata.
