Thanks for proposing this idea
This has been reported to the engineering under the internal reference ASSETS-39115. The product team will triage this request to verify feasibility based on the prioritization model. This post will be updated according to the Jira request status.
Status changed to: Investigating




@Rohan_Garg There are two different topics in the request: (1) ability to display custom menu buttons, and (2) ability to display custom property types used in the metadata form


for #2 related to metadata properties: Currently the Admin needs to go and configure the metadata form in the Assets View. Each property should map to the same node as in Touch UI. Some customers are leveraging the Assets View as a lighter weight experience and are configuring the metadata form to include a subset of the properties used in Touch. 


If there are missing property types, could you please elaborate? If you built out custom form fields in Touch where there was a new UI element or overlay, please let me know as these may be something we look to productize in the future.
