Newbie here with newbie question. I have been tasked with making a departmental SharePoint site more usable. The complaint is nothing can be found.
All the content is heavily sub-foldered as different people took over control of the site.
I was wondering if a meta tag search function would uncover the content and make it more visible. This means tagging hundreds of files, but that is just donkey work.
The big issue from my perspective is to be able to copy links of all documents into one library which I would then use for the metatagging and searching.
So my questions:
- would this approach work? And let me know if my background and desired outcome is not clear, and
- Is there an automated scripted way that I can have hundreds of files in folder A be linked to a master directory library which will be my main search area?
Many thanks for any thoughts.
