Frustrations and Fixes
Whether you call them “pain points” or “pains in the neck,” we all deal with DAM frustrations. Read about some common ones, and how to fix them, straight from our master librarians.
How Do I Make Sure Metadata Is Cataloged Correctly?
A dedicated librarian can ensure correct metadata tagging, but when one is not available, the next best option is to create easy-to-use reference materials everyone can use.
Why should I care about Rights Management?
Why should you care about rights management? It's essential to have a systemic approach so creators can safely use an asset.
How do I get people to repurpose existing media?
The central goal of a DAM is to make your assets accessible for DAM end-users, no matter their workflow. The ability to reuse content maximizes investments already made.
Tagging seems easy, but doing it well, and sustainably, is deceptively hard. The people assigned to cataloging and tagging need to be dedicated to the task.
What questions should I ask when looking for a DAM?
In the DAM discovery process, you have to take in a lot of information and assess its value to your organization, and distilling it all can be a challenge. However there is a checklist of sorts that ensures you ask and answer the right questions for your unique situation.
Why Can’t I Find Anything in the DAM?
The definitions for your keywords, terms, or tags are useless to your DAM without a good taxonomy. A taxonomy is a system that defines the keywords and terms attributed to your assets. A successful taxonomy lives behind the scenes, connecting your assets to your end-users.
