I've been confused with document library metadata (i.e columns) as I hadn't fully understood that once they are defined through
Quick Edit or
Library Settings in a view, they are defined for all "folder" views, at any level of the library, even with unrelated documents.
I thought the view was defined for the current page only. Is this right? Just to be sure, is there a way to have views within a document libray where documents display only configured metadata in some folders?
Is defining a specific
Content Type the solution?
