Edit metadata with a manifest


##Create a manifest There are three different ways to create a manifest file that you can use for editing metadata. * **Use the export feature** to [export the metadata manifest ](doc:export-metadata-to-a-manifest) and then modify it to suit your needs; this manifest will contain all metadata keys for all files, not only for the selected ones. * **Create a manifest from scratch** - see [Metadata manifest file format](doc:format-of-a-manifest-file) * **Download our template** from the **Edit metadata with manifest page** which you can then modify. See below for further information.
