File Types

File Types are used to differentiate between different file formats (e.g. JPG, PDF, MOV, etc.) and to control how yeager handles these types of documents. yeager recognizes the most common types of documents automatically upon upload. Alternatively, the File Type can also be specified manually.

Among the most important properties of File Types is the File processor configuration, which controls the creation of File Views.
