METADATA Tools and or Synonym editor...
I am looking for webinars, literature, PDF, or step by step examples of how to work with and use the synonym editor and the associated metadata tools. I attended a webinar on the 9th of December and one of the topics was the metadata tools. The webinar was not detailed enough to gleen enough information to actually work with the tools. I currently have a "naming conventions" project where I will need to create new names for our data for end users to understand the data better. I will also be creating business views for these end user's to create their own reports. Unfortunately this will be a new process and the learning curve is a concern going forward. Any links, examples, suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
ERINP

Hi Erin,

There are plenty of documentation available on the admin side. You may also consider taking some hands on training through IBI .. for example, training for metadata

Thanks,
Sayed

Sayed,
Thanks for the input. I was hoping to find a previous webinar or walk thru that I could look at as opposed to dropping $600.00 on a training class. Perhaps I just need to poke around within the tool and figure it out.

Thanks,
ERINP

Kerry,
I did review this list previously and I didn't find anything that I thought would help me with the project I have coming up. If an in depth webinar was available for building business views, and/or working with metadata tools I am just missing it... I think once I get into this project I will be able to figure it out I was just looking for a "leg up" prior to the start of it. If IBI decides to create a new Webinar on either of these items I would be more than happy to attend.

Happy Holidays,
ERINP
