    Asset UPnP User Rename List feature

    The rename feature allows a displayed text elements to be renamed (such as changing 'Album Artist' in the first menu), or more powerfully when scanning the music tracks to process the ID Tags, such as add the year to the end of an album name. This feature can be found in:

    (Linux & Mac): Advanced tab, User Rename List (Display / Tag Mapping) - Edit ...
    (Windows): Advanced Settings window, General Settings box, User Rename List (Display / Tag Mapping) - [Edit Rename List]

    Note: All matching is non-case-sensitive. "Value" and "value" are treated as identical.
