Article: New Features in Dedoose 8: Descriptor Auto Link!

12/21/2017 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):

    Click the "Descriptors" Tab


  2. Click the Descriptors tab

    Click the "Descriptors" Tab


  3. Click Auto Link

    Click the "Auto Link" Button


  4. Select the field with your document titles in it

    Select the Field with your Document Titles


  5. Click Continue

    Click "Yes" to Autolink Codes


  6. And that is it, your media will be auto linked.
