Taxonomy, Content Types, and Metadata, Oh My!

A session at SharePoint Saturday Indianapolis

Saturday 12th January, 2013

1:00pm to 2:00pm (CST)

If you really don’t want your shiny new SharePoint installation to turn into another file dumping ground just like the chaotic shared network drive did. Or, if your current SharePoint installation is already heading in that direction, then you really want to take advantage of the power that SharePoint can provide for organizing knowledge and increasing findability. To do this successfully, you MUST understand Content Types and Metadata and how to leverage the tools and features of SharePoint to implement a coherent and usable taxonomy.

In this fast moving session, you will hear clear (non-jargon) explanations of these taxonomy concepts and how they relate to each other. You will be given tools that you can use to educate your stakeholders and you will learn how to apply them in a way that makes SharePoint into a much more powerful and useful tool.
