I have a question about associating metadata with content. Let say I have a document called purchase order and it has other properties associated with it such as client and year.
So ideally I would create library having 3 columns Name, Client, year (e.g. of row: purchase_order, contoso, 2015).
What if instead of creating separate columns for metadata, I put metadata in file name (e.g. : purchase_order_Contoso_2015) I know by doing this I wont be able to filter and sort but would this improve search ? as sharepoint gives preference to name field during search. In this case it has all metadata within name would this improve search results or search would behave in same way when we have separate columns for metadata ?
