It is now even easier and quicker to upload your content, flexibly rearrange your collections and enrich your metadata at any time. This means you can get started right away safeguarding your valuable content without needing to get everything predefined.

What's new:

Save time editing your metadata in bulk

We’ve enhanced our popular bulk metadata editing feature*. Save time curating your collections by editing Dublin Core or MODS descriptive metadata across multiple assets in your folders or subfolders. Really handy if you need to change spellings or apply dates or a rights statement across your collections.

Easily upload, preserve and view emails

We’re always adding to the formats you can preserve and view with Starter.

As well as being able to bulk upload files & folders and ZIP files you can now drag & drop email files such as Outlook PST, EML and Google MBOX. Starter will automatically unpack and preserve the individual email messages and make them easy to view. Perfect for preserving the emails of elected officials, senior stakeholders or donated collections from well-known individuals.

Add thumbnails to folders and assets

As an archivist you spend a lot of time and effort curating your digital archive, making sure it is just right. Now you can easily choose the best thumbnail for your folders and assets. Just right‑click on any folder or asset and choose 'Change thumbnail' from the Actions menu. It’s that easy.

Quickly upload your metadata in bulk

And don’t forget you can also now upload your metadata in bulk as a CSV file. Another great time saving feature that will help you build your digital archive super quick. Get in touch if you’d like to learn more about how to upload your metadata in bulk.
