I am working on a SharePoint site with very basic privileges. No access to central admin, unable to create a term store, no SharePoint designer, etc.
All I need to do is create a bunch of document libraries. These document libraries will contain Word docs and PDFs mostly.
The users want an ability for them to add multiple keywords and associate them to the documents they upload so that they can search for those documents using those keywords. They don't want to be restricted to a set of keywords so I can't use a check box and I cant use drop downs either because they want to be able to associate multiple keywords to one document. They will also have to add new keywords when they upload new documents.
Keeping in mind all these conditions and restrictions. I created a column called
Tags that allows multiple lines of text. The idea is to let them enter the key words they want separated by a semicolon. Will the out-of-the-box be able to search on those keywords entered in the
Tags column? Is there an entirely different approach that will work better?
