    Is it possibile to add custom fields to a Images & Documents module?
    For example, adding a textboxes and drop-down lists that could be used to search for documents. I am new to Sitefinity, so I need details. 

    Thanks, Derrick

    Hello Derrick,

    It is possible. You need to add a new metafields. Check out our User Manual, section Add custom meta fields. If you are running version 3.6 you should use external templates.

    Let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.

    All the best,

    Thanks for your response. :)

    Is it possible to search for documents by more than on field at a time?  My client wants to be able to enter criteria into a some custom fields and retreive all the documents that match that criteria.  Also, can checkboxes, and radio buttons be added as custom fields.

    Thanks.

    Hello Derrick,

    Currently we can provide a way to search in Images and Documents( and especially documents) only using one field. Searching using multiple requests at the same time will be available form version 4.0.
    You can use different control types, but the type of this metakey should be specified in web.config declaration. Example : ShortText, LongText, Boolean etc.
