  1. Go to Account Settings > Advanced Metadata > Field Settings
  2. Expand any of the Code and Attribute sections and switch on any fields you which to display in the Label, Album and Track fields.

    For received content: By switching these to Active you will have access to these fields from your original publisher's data if they also have turned on Agent access to ON in their account.

    For originated content in your account: you will be able to provide your agents with access to these fields. Any active fields will be included in downloaded metadata.

  3. Click the X close button at the top of the modal to save your changes.
