Batch tagging multiple assets

Why does CatDV add a "(Various)" tag to batch-tagged assets that had already metadata--seemingly rendering my ability to perform a search on all the previous tags that were concatenated with the "(Various)" tag.

Have I lost all of the tags that are now labeled "Various"?

This is not a field value. It’s just a way of showing the fact that you have a bunch if assets selected that have “various” values in that one field.

Imagine if you selected records of all 50 state capitals. In the “state” field, you wouldn’t want to see all 50 states listed (which is what you have in that result) so instead CatDV let’s you know that there are “various” values in that field.

If you selected only cities in New York, then the State field would only show “New York.”

Hope that helps.

Thanks. I get that, but why can't I search on those terms that are now within that ("Various") bracket?
Are those terms no longer searchable at the catalog level but, globally, I guess?

It presents a problem for me because the info in that "keyword" field is what the National Archives needs to accompany our submissions.
