MetaVis Feature of the Day: Mass Tagging SharePoint Items

May 29, 2014

One of the basic functions of MetaVis Platform is the option to change field values for multiple selected documents or items in SharePoint lists simultaneously. We call this process tagging or classification. The option allows to specify new value for a list field or to copy a value from one field to another field.

This option could be used for metadata enhancement and for general content reorganization. Enhanced metadata could be used later in search to find the relevant content quickly. It could also be used in flexible navigation scenarios by using List Views with metadata based item grouping or metadata navigation.

This option could also improve content authoring and initial content classification. MetaVis tagging option allows to copy values between fields of different type. This way, power users and administrators can create Lookup or Managed Metadata fields to replace existing free text entry fields and copy values from existing fields to the new sophisticated ones so that authors can select appropriate values for the fields easier and more accurately at the time of the content creation.
