I have inherited ownership of a Sharepoint site by someone who left the company several months ago. I've been asked to reorganize the site (it's still a mess from when they migrated from 2007; the current version is 2010).
I have been self-teaching SharePoint as my workplace does not offer any support. I believe that using site columns would be a very useful way to manage the many libraries we have.
My suspicion is that the now-gone employee, who I've heard was also self-taught, may not have known about/used site columns. However, I'm not sure how to check if this is true.
I went to the site gallery and while it seems theoretically possible to go through all the columns and compare them to the default set, I'm not sure where to discover what that default set is.
What I'd really like to do is go to any library and find out if the columns in that library are custom for that library or if they are site columns. Is this possible? Googling is only getting me hits about how to add site columns.
I would appreciate any tips! Thanks.
