Property

Also sometimes referred to as metadata, properties are the granular elements of data stored on a document. There are different types of properties:

  • text properties are strings;
  • dates are stored as such;
  • yes/no properties are booleans;
  • numbered properties use integers;
  • blobs are used to store binary content such as files.

Properties can also be a list of these types, such as a list of dates, a list of strings. They can even have a more complex structure (like a list of “contact”) and are then named “complex properties”.
