Editing a document means modifying its content (i.e. the attached file of a file document, the text of a note, etc.), or simply editing the title, description or any property of the document.
You can also edit documents using Nuxeo Drive. For more information, see Nuxeo Drive Editing Documents.
Properties of the documents, a.k.a. metadata, help the document to be more accurately referenced. Some properties are automatically filled in by the system, but most of them need to be filled in by users. When you create a document (file, note, workspace, section, or any other document type), its properties are empty.
The Nuxeo Platform uses Dublin Core metadata by default, although not all of them are necessarily displayed to the user by default. Dublin Core metadata are:
|Nature||Nature of the document. Values come from the nature vocabulary.|
|Subjects||Topic(s) of the document. Values come from the I10nsubjects vocabularies.|
|Rights||Information about the reproduction rights of the document. Rights informations often encompass Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright.|
|Source||The references of the resource from which the document's content is derived (totally or partially).|
|Coverage||Information about the geographic reach of the document. Values come from the I10ncoverage vocabulary.|
|Created at||Date automatically filled in by the system when the document is created.|
|Last modified at||Date automatically filled in by the system when the document is modified.|
|Format||Format of the document, if any is preferred.|
|Language||Language used in the document.|
|Expire on||Date on which the document stops being valid. Click on the calendar icon to select a date. This date is not indexed in the system. It is just in indication for users but it is not processed by the application.|
|Author||User who created the document. This field is automatically filled in by the system.|
|Contributors||Users who modified the document. This field is automatically filled in by the system.|
|Last contributor||Last user who modified the document. This field is automatically filled in by the system.|
Although properties are not mandatory, filling them in will make your documents easier to find using Nuxeo search engine.
