PDF’s metadata and uploading cell
The PDF’s we usually use may contain metadata. This information indicates the document’s author, subject, keywords, etc. and is generated automatically when the PDF document is created.
When the PDF’s are loaded inside IS-Academia, they also contain this information. Most of time, it’s unused, but a document from IS-Academia may be sent to an external system which may need such information to publish or manage the document.
Inside IS-Academia, a cell has been developed to load a PDF document inside a student’s follow-up. The particularity of this cell, is that it is possible to define, for each document, which metadata we want inquired. The data may arise from the user, or even from a GPS’s detail of the registration used.
The document saved inside IS-Academia contains metadata up-to-date and in cohesion with the student concerned, and may be sent to another system properly.
