Set color or rating on ingest.
« on: January 31, 2008, 07:02:36 AM »
Is it possible to set a color code / star rating during ingest?

If not, please add that to a future enhancement request.

I color code all images that have a sound file attached to it.  Currently, I have to ingest, then do a find on the entire folder for the IPTC field where I put {sound} variable, then set the color color code for all selected items.  This means reading the folder twice. It would be nice to skip the FIND and the color setting step if I could just define a rule on the ingest panel for what to set a color code (or star rating) to during the ingest.

Thanks.

-Mike

Rob Galbraith requested such a feature a while ago.  It is on our list.  I don't know when it will be implemented however.

Fair 'nuff.  As long as it is on the list, I am fine.

Thanks.
