The Parameter Manager screen allows you to control settings for your course and your resources.

From this screen, you can set the resource parameters and their default actions. You can also set which cataloging metadata users can associate with their portfolio files.

Many course coordinators will make extensive use of setting parameters for resources, and for problems in particular. There are a number of modes available. The easiest is probably the helper mode Help, which guides you through the process. Once you have some experience with the system, you might use the overview Help and table modes Help more frequently. Several of these actions can be partially automated by setting Parameter Setting Default Actions.

For setting problem parameters, another convenient mode outside the Parameter Manager is navigating to the problem and using the Content Settings functionality Help.

Finally, you can list all parameters that have already been set in overview mode, and see a log of all changes.
