Adding Objects

You’ve perfected your Blueprints – good job! Now it’s time to start adding your objects and inputting information.

Add a Single Object

To add a new object to your Base, click or tap the + icon on your Objects page.

Objects page

Give the object a title and select the ideal Blueprint from the dropdown list (your Core Blueprint will be selected by default).

Add an Object

The selected Blueprint determines the fields you will see.

Blank Object Form

We'll begin by adding an image (jpg, png, or webp). Drag the image into the Add Files box or upload it. (You can do this later if you don't have an available image).

Add an Image

Enter object information into the fields. Fields that require information are indicated by an asterisk. In the Tags field, you’ll enter helpful key words (for example, butterflies).

Enter Object Data

When you're finished, remember to save using the button at lower right.

Save Object

Import a Batch of Objects

If you'd like to upload a group of objects, the first step is to determine the ideal Blueprint for that particular batch.

Object data can be uploaded via CSV for a single Blueprint type. To help you get started, the MOON Object System generates helpful, downloadable CSVs based on the fields in your Blueprints.

You can upload data for 500 objects at a time.

Please see the CSV Guidelines for detailed instructions on how to download a CSV template, how to enter information, and how to upload a CSV to your Base.

Add Files

For each object, you can add multiple images (jpg, png, webp, or gif), videos (mp4), audio files (mp3), and pdfs. The file size limit is 50 MB.

Click on Add Files to import or simply drag your files into the box.

Select your Hero Image by clicking on the star to the right of the file name. This is the image you'll see when you view your Base objects.

Adding Files

Click on Files. You can also add new files or update your Hero Image here.

View Files

For each file, you can add a caption, alt text, rights and credit information, and notes.
