Read-Only Mode of Utility Trees
You may find it convenient to use the read-only mode of utility trees, which is accessible from the Utility Bar, to accomplish mass actions, quickly. For example, tagging pages or assets with taxonomy tags can be time-consuming if you were to open and tag each page or asset, individually. The following steps demonstrate how to assign multiple assets (or pages) to a common taxonomy category via utility trees.
- Navigate to . The Taxonomy Tree displays in the main view area.
- Click the category that will be configured in the Taxonomy Tree.
- Select its Associations tab.
- Click the Asset Tree icon in the Utility Bar. The Assets Tree opens in the Navigation pane.
Note: Utility trees are read-only (dimmed) in the
Navigation pane - i.e., you cannot rename an asset from this location - to ensure
that no inadvertent changes are made while performing a mass-action task.

In this way, you can be assured that the pinned utility tree will remain open and available.
- Once the Assets Tree and the Taxonomy view are side-by-side, select multiple assets
from the Assets Tree that will be tagged (associated) with the specified
category.TipIf you access Ingeniux CMS from a Windows client, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift, then select the appropriate assets from their tree. If the assets you want to select are grouped in the tree (e.g., within a single branch), you can expand the parent nodes then click+hold+drag to select the set of assets (or pages).
- Drag the set of assets from the Assets Tree to the Associations tab. The selected assets populate the Associations tab.
- From the Site Tree, you can associate taxonomy categories with pages or components.
- From the Site Tree, you can drag xIDs into applicable elements within page or component forms.
- From the Taxonomy Tree, you can drag category nodes into elements within page or component forms.
