A Catalog is usually a collection of Assets owned or managed by a Record Label or Music Publisher under a specific brand name. An Organization can therefore manage several Catalogs, giving the possibility of virtually isolate them from each other.
To add a new Catalog, go to the navigation menu on the left, open the "Properties" section and click on the "Catalogs" list. Then click on the orange button "New Catalog" located at the top right of the list.
A pop-up window will open to enter the necessary metadata to add a new Catalog.
To save the new Catalog, click on the orange button "Save" located at the bottom right of the pop-up window. The new Catalog will then be immediately available in the "Catalogs" list. To stop the action, click on the grey "Cancel" button next to it.
We did not consider developing a tool to add Catalogs in bulk to be necessary.
To edit a Catalog, go to the navigation menu on the left, open the "Properties" section and click on the "Catalogs" list. Select a Catalog in the list, point them and click right (or click on the three dots icon
