Customization and automation

Some workflow and processing decisions can be made or viewed in the dashboard and others are created at the development level.

Resources for dashboard configuration

The Preservation Planning tab allows editing or addition of commands for identification, tools, characterization, event detail, extraction, normalization, transcription, validation and verification. Please see the Format Policy Registry (FPR) documentation for instruction.

Basic workflow configuration is feasible by administrators or end-users in the Administration tab of the dashboard.
