Adding information about the requesting user in an action

This feature is available both in Standard and Extended actions

When a user runs an action that sends files to a destination, you might want to add information about the user that requested the processing.
FotoWeb can add this information to specific fields in the metadata of the processed files.

In the properties of the action in question, go to the Destination asset tab and turn on the Apply user identity to metadata toggle.
