I would like to see an option in ArcGIS Pro to have some metadata automatically be populated similar to what ArcCatalog does. Some examples of what I am referring to are:

  1. Overview->New Bounding Box (or Resource->Extents->Bounding Box)
  2. Overview->Title
  3. Metadata->Details->File Identifier
  4. Resource->Spatial Reference->Reference System->Dimension
  5. Resource->Spatial Reference->Reference System->Code
  6. Resource->Spatial Reference->Reference System->Code Space
  7. Resource->Spatial Reference->Reference System->Version
  8. Resource->Distribution->Distribution Format->Format Name
  9. Resource->Distribution->Distribution Format->Format Version
  10. Resource->Fields->Entity and Attribute Information

Thank you @KoryKramer  for the information. However, I am looking for something like the functionality that ArcCatalog has were you can check a box in ArcCatalog Options to have that sync run when you view the metadata.

Thank you for the information on the Synchronize. That helps but I like having the option to have that sync happen automatically. Do I need to change the name of this idea to make it more clear? Also, can you please unmark this as "Already Offered"?
