I've been tasked with creating a archive at work where we can search through the documents using parameters given in the forms of tags.

To give an example to better illustrate what I am working towards:

CompanyX handles 10000 cases a year. 50 of these were rather troublesome and required quite some time to process. Because of this, CompanyX wants to store these so that they can be used as references should a similar case happen. Each file should be then be tagged with certain keywords so that they can easily be found at a later date.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, that'd be much appricated!


You can implement this using metadata navigation on a document library. Enable the metadata navigation and filtering site feature, then create a document library and add a managed metadata column to it. Populate the column's terms with appropriate values (such as Troublesome Case) and then add the column to your metadata navigation.

Tagging in this way also empowers SharePoint search.
