Figure 1.  Metadata Page

The Metadata page (Fig. 1) allows you to manage Metadata items specific to the selected Site.  Site Metadata items are custom name-value pairs you can use for your own reference purposes or to facilitate searching for Sites in the Mako Central Management System (CMS).

Some potential uses for this could be to record an alternate location ID for the Site, the phone number of the DSL modem, the location manager’s name, the store type, etc.

You can then reference these Metadata items when searching for Sites.  See the Search Sites documentation for details.

You can also manage Company Metadata and Mako Metadata.
