What is metadata?

Metadata is data that provides information about your document.


When you send a PDF document, a metadata file is created, this file will allow your archive to be searchable.


This metadata file is created in the same folder that the PDF file is saved. The metadata file is an XML file with extension “zdx” and the same name as the PDF file. The following metadata will be included in the file:


Document Name

Date and Time

User Name

Document Classification type


Email Subject

Email Body


If the Save Metadata as CSV option is selected, a CSV as well as an XML file will be written. This metadata file will have the extension csv and the same name as the PDF file.


Note: the CSV file will not use “” to delineate fields.
