An attribute is a property or characteristic. VIDIZMO by default has certain attributes that are associated with media on the platform. However, users can also customize attributes to improve search visibility and metadata. 

For instance, in large organizations, there are multiple departments that store content in bulk. At times, this content needs to be segregated and categorized by assigning an attribute to it. This helps in easy retrieval, indexing, and searches. 

Custom attributes can be marked as mandatory for all on the content available in media management or can be specified to audio, documents, images, presentation, quiz, surveys, and videos.
