Your Check workspace includes a tab for ‘Sources’ within each of your media item pages.

This article explains:

The Sources tab

To access the Sources tab within an item page, navigate to the right where next to Requests, Metadata, Tasks, Notes, and Related you will see Sources.

You can view each time a new source was added to your workspace (1). To see how many items are attributed to the source click the link under the source name (2).

The Source tab in Check’s browser extension

On the browser extension, you can also view the item’s source and URL

Adding Secondary URL's

You can also add secondary sources to the item page, by clicking the ‘+’ beneath the main source URL.

Searching existing sources and creating new ones

You can also search and add existing sources to your media items within the item page.

Where there is no recognised source, for instance with an image upload, use the search bar to find the item’s source. Typing in the search box displays sources that have been added to your workspace.

If the item’s source name is not listed, you can create a new source by clicking ‘Create new’ in the search bar.

Input the name of the main media source and its URL. You can also add secondary source details if available. Click ‘Create source’ to save the source details.

Where Check detects a submitted source, you can edit its details.

Clicking ‘CHANGE’ allows you to search for existing sources where the main name or the main URL are identical to an existing source or create new sources

You can also search for sources from Check’s search bar, by clicking on the search gear and selecting 'Source'.

Viewing lists of items per source

Navigate to any item and from the source tab, click the (number of) items link.

All items attributed to the source will be listed in a new tab.

To keep track of the source, you can create a filtered list.

Metadata for Sources

There are also additional metadata for Sources accessible in settings.

To navigate to the metadata settings tab, click the gear icon for workspace settings (1), select the metadata tab (2) then click ‘SOURCES’ (3).

To add new fields to the Sources tab in the item page, click ‘NEW METADATA’

You will then be able to choose Text, Single and multiple select, Location, Date and time, or Upload file fields.

  • Text field: allows you to add a prompt as well as an optional description and browser extension

  • Single select field: allows you to input a prompt and list options, where workspace members can only select one value

  • Multiple fields: allow workspace members to select multiple values

  • Location: the input field is similar to the text with optional description and browser extension visibility

  • Date and Time: includes a timezone, with optional description and browser extension visibility

  • File upload: prompts workspace members to upload files. Learn more about supported file formats here

Source fields can be reordered to determine their positioning on the workspace and browser extension. To adjust the placement, click the arrows to the left of the metadata name
