Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Add metadata to a document, part of Learning SharePoint Online.
- [Instructor] The product that evolved…to become SharePoint Online began as an internal product…created by Microsoft to solve issues that they were having,…issues caused by the limitations…of traditional file shares and Microsoft Windows.…Specifically, they wanted to make it easier…to find documents and harder to lose them.…For example, if we go to the Human Resources site…and look at the library that we have here,…it has three documents in the library, not a lot,…and one of the things that we'd like to know…about those documents is what department…were they created for?…Because not all of the documents here…necessarily were created for HR.…
HR creates documents that are used…by a number of other different departments.…So, one way to do that is to include Human Resources…or HR in the file name.…Another way is to create a folder…and throw all of the HR documents into the HR folder.…The limitation of our first method,…putting HR in every single file name,…is that some departments have longer names,…some have shorter names, but every name takes up space,…
