Improve consistency of UX between Folder & File metadata in web app
Right now (July 2019) in the FLMD public beta, the UX for Folder level metadata is very inconsistent (and arguably more cumbersome) than File level metadata.
For Folder level metadata, the metadata modal only displays after clicking "Edit", which is unintuitive since most users will just be viewing and not editing the Folder metadata.

Even in the new UI Beta, there's a disconnect
I would agree that there's a disconnect. For a file, you must "preview" the file to "view details" to see metadata info.
For a folder you "Edit" and it comes up in a separate popup window (in which you can edit)
Personally I prefer the popup window method for a file at this point.
