Extending SharePoint metadata
MetaVis Technologies has launched Cloud Classifier for SharePoint 2010, which allows SharePoint 2010 users to tag and classify multiple items directly from the SharePoint user interface. MetaVis says users have more control to add the appropriate metadata to documents, extending the value of SharePoint search and improving the user experience.
MetaVis says SharePoint 2010 provides tagging and classification technology but is limited to individual items, thereby making classifying multiple documents time-consuming and tedious. MetaVis Cloud Classifier allows users to select multiple documents from SharePoint sites, libraries, lists or search results and classify in bulk. Users can also create templates to help classify content for specific projects or activities, further simplifying the process. By making classification easy for the user, content becomes more findable and accessible.
In addition to basic tagging, Cloud Classifier allows users to:
- change content types for multiple selected documents and specify field values;
- e-map fields to copy metadata values from one field to another;
- enter values directly or select them from standard SharePoint columns, including Managed Metadata Fields linked to Term Sets; and
- perform metadata enhancement and data classification in SharePoint sites.
