Key benefits of including metadata in your Documents and Document Groups via the API
Adding metadata to a document makes it easier to locate specific documents. By assigning relevant tags or keywords, users can quickly find what they're looking for without having to go through each document manually.
Metadata helps categorize and organize documents. It provides additional information about a document to easily sort and classify documents based on various parameters such as creation date, author, customer ID, etc.
Ease of automation
With detailed metadata, businesses can automate specific processes like routing documents to appropriate departments or individuals and updating internal records. This increases efficiency and reduces the chance of human error.
Explore common use cases for document metadata
Use metadata to track the progress of each agreement you send for eSignature. Upon completion, you can receive a webhook response with this metadata, allowing for quick updates in internal systems without manual intervention.
Add metadata like an applicant’s name, the position they applied for, and their interview stages to hiring documents. When an applicant completes a document, the HR system will receive a webhook response containing this metadata, automatically updating the applicant’s records.
Safeguarding confidential documents
For industries dealing with sensitive documents, you can add metadata pertaining to the level of confidentiality and authorized personnel. Webhook responses carrying this metadata can trigger specific protocols, like moving a document to a secure storage or notifying authorized employees upon its completion.
