Browse > Classification to be included in DAM UI to give visibility to taxonomy

Moving to new consumer home page - DAM UI, users would like to browse through classification. They have lost this capability. Impact on the user experience and search


Hi Marilyne,

I read your request as a similar one already in Voice:


So I think our response may apply to your use case as well, but let me know if I did not interpret this well:

"In the Content Workspace (new DAM UI) we try to guide people to content based on metadata. The main navigation is based on spaces which are visual entry blocks pulling people into subsets of content and to start filtering from there. Spaces will be available on content groups like collections (static or dynamic) which on their turn can be powered based on metadata, including classification structures.

So the strategy of the new UI is to surface classifications as metadata, as an end-user typically isn't familiar with 'classifications' or 'taxonomy'.

There will be use cases where it will make sense to surface parts of the taxonomy to the user to support filtering, but we wouldn't expect to surface a full tree. What we expose will be driven by classification list fields."
