Forgive this very newbie question - and I tried to post this question a few days ago, but apparently there was a hiccup and it did not appear. If I am violating some standard here, please blame it on my ignorance and let me know of my indiscretion.
I have fallen heir to a very folder-intensive Sharepoint document site, with many subfolders. The content has not been metatagged.
I figure the best way to make this site usable is to include metatags for all the content. This will take time, but is doable.
BUT, I also understand that Sharepoint search is flaky in a very layered environment, which is what I have.
So I thought it might make sense to copy all document hyperlinks to a new library, and tag those links and use that one library as the search library, so all content is flat.
My questions then: 1: is this approach reasonable - will it do what I want to do, that is have a robust, searchable document environment, and
2: is there an automagical way I can have SharePoint poll through this content, create links to the documents, and copy these links into another library?
