I'm building a sln for managing projects. A site will be created for each project. Each project has a projectId, and is also related to a CustomerID, and a OrderId. The project site includes a document library.
My question is what metadata to include in the document contenttype used in that library.
Include projectid, customerid and orderid in the contentype.
+ This will make it easier later when searching for documents.
- Boring for the customer to add that metadata for everydocument.
Include none of the ids in the metadata.
+ Faster to add new document
- Difficult to later find, say all documents for a given customer
Include projectid, customerid and orderid in contenttype, but make the "new forms" fill out that metadata by default
+ Same as option1
- Don't know how to implement...(the projectid is part of the url, so I can grab it. And I can store the customerId, and orderid somewhere in the site..., but still, how can I make them be readonly and filled out by default?)
Thanks for any suggestions
