Good morning! I have a situation to tackle: for each item in a library, there are additional columns whose values will be populated with information (strings). There's several columns - for example:
- Column -- Value
- DocumentCode -- ABC
- AssociatedColour -- Red
I have created these column titles as metadata tags in the MMS.
Then, I am hoping to configure the Search Service Application to search using those columns. So users can search specifically within the AssociatedColour field value for all documents that are labeled as Red or some other value.
Am I approaching this situation correctly? Can Search filter by column values? I understand that the document libraries itself function similar to a Filtered Excel document, but for an end user, it's not visually friendly.
***Update: Additional information - the values in the columns are not predetermined. For example, a user can make up a new colour ("Tomato") and enter into that field. Can MMS be configured to allow this?
