Add Entry Feature, Additional
Documents added to Content Central using Add Entry Feature or Drag-and-Drop are NOT processed for OCR. Therefore, image files (PDF, TIFF, JPEG, etc.) that are added will not be converted to Full Text Searchable PDF and can only be Full Text searchable using its built in indexes.
There will be no default field values assigned initially to document added in using the Add Entry method. When committing new field values to the document, the document may be re-filed or saved in a different folder based on the Folder Building Items.
Add Entry Feature and Drag and Drop Feature only work on a Catalog and Document Type with no required fields.
