Office documents in SharePoint 2010
Posted on 2014-01-17
A question about handling documents in SharePoint 2010.
What i've seen a couple of times now, is that a company introduces SharePoint and just copy their folder structure from Windows explorer to SharePoint document libraries. And that's it. They still have that same web of folders that they used before. User have to click their way into the folder structure to find the document they want to work on.
My guess is, that there must be another way. Is it possible to use Office documents with metatags or document properties, and upload them all to 1 folder. Use document libraries to show just the specific documents that you want.
For example, i've got several document for the sales department. I tag the documents as sales, upload them to some kind of document repository..... Add a document library to the SharePoint Sales site, and confiure the library to just show the documents with the Sales tag.
Or something like this.... Your help will be appreciated.
