Limits on facet displays

Most facets are hidden!





What does it cost to create metadata l.jpg
What does it cost to create metadata?

Consider complexity of facet and ambiguity of content to estimate time per value.

Machine-filled fields have costs too.

Is this field worth the cost?

Estimated cost of tagging one item. This can be reduced with automation, but cannot be eliminated.
