Add and edit metadata

Metadata is the additional information that could be added to a barrier. This information can include the barrier type, its condition, owner and location.

Bowtie Master allows users to add customised metadata (i.e titles and colour formats) to the barriers they have identified. Improving the visibility of critical bits of information related to the controls of your operation. This guide details how to add and delete metadata.

A standard list of metadata types could be created for your organisation via the settings menu.  If you would like to create metadata types for each of the bowties you create have a look at adding new metadata at a bowtie diagram level
