New Features in Dedoose 8: Descriptor Auto Link!


Looking to speed up linking descriptors to your media? Dedoose has you covered! Now with version 8 is the new Auto Link button at the bottom of the Descriptors tab. Using Auto Link will take the title of your media and link it with any descriptor that matches in a field of your choosing.

Let’s do a quick example!

1. Make sure you have a descriptor field that has your media titles in it (Note: The names will have to match perfectly, but ordering will not matter as in the example below):

3. Click Auto Link
