The Box Web Application is about to get even better, with a brand new metadata experience that delivers a streamlined way to add metadata to files and folders. We're making it easier than ever for Box users to add context to content, more effectively structure business centric data, and trigger policies based on this information. Rather than navigating to individual files to add metadata, you can now apply metadata at the folder level, and create cascade policies to apply metadata templates & attributes down to subfolders and files.
This update will first be available as a Public Beta, enabled directly from the Box Admin Console, with the full launch happening later this year. We'll be providing more detailed resources about this opt-in public beta soon, so stay tuned!
