Our Portfolio users know firsthand the adaptability and flexibility of this DAM. But many people don’t know the power of Server Side Scripting. In this free webinar we’ll demonstrate two versions of the orientation script, which can transform process automation in your workflows:

1. orientation_onjob.js

This Server Side Script applies an item's orientation value (e.g. Landscape, Portrait, or Square) to a desired custom metadata field (e.g. "Orientation").

Script is manually initiated by users on each selected asset via the "Run Scripts" menu within the Portfolio Client interface.

2. orientation_oncataloged.js

While similar to the script above, this script applies an item’s orientation value to a desired custom field during the initial cataloging process.

Script is initiated immediately after an asset is added to Portfolio.

During the initial cataloging process, this Server-Side Script automatically applies an item's orientation value (e.g. Landscape, Portrait, or Square) to a desired custom metadata field (e.g. "Orientation").

Script includes Catalog "Blacklisting" capabilities, so you can exclude the script from running for specific Catalogs.

James Grace, Chris Stevens, and Richard Bamford as they explain how this and other custom scripts enhance Portfolio.
