SharePoint uses three primary methods for categorizing content. The hierarchy of sites, lists and folders (which is similar to how file systems store files in folders), metadata (via content types and fields), and AutoTagging to tag or classify content for find-ability and filtering. The application has been designed to categorize content in bulk by leveraging one or all of these methods.
This section will walk you through the process of intelligently tagging content. Please refer to the section titled, Copy, Move, and Tag SharePoint, for additional information on moving or copying content into specific sites, lists, and folders.
1.Locate a list or library, containing the content you wish to classify, in the Navigator pane. Double-click on the list to load its contents into the Contents pane.
If the site containing your items or documents is not available in the Navigator pane, follow the instructions for Connecting to SharePoint in order to load it.
2.From the list of files located in the Contents pane, select all the files for tagging. Hold down the CTRL key to select multiple individual files or SHFT key to select multiple consecutive items.
3.Right-click on any of the selected files, and select the Tag option from the drop down menu. This will initiate the tagging wizard.
5.Once the tagging selections are made, press the Next button located at the bottom of the window. A summary screen will be generated asking you to confirm the operation. Press Finish to initiate the tagging. The application will complete the tagging process and provide a notification window.
·For the Migrator version of this wizard, users may select the "Create CSV File for Uploading, Tagging and Copying Files", which will create a CSV file that may be edited and used for tagging at a later time (see Copy and Tag SharePoint Items Using CSV).
·For Migrator version of this wizard, in the event any errors are thrown, you may reprocess any failed items after resolving the underlying issues.
·For lists with Content Approval enabled, an Approval Status field will be displayed. This field can be used to bulk approve/reject selected content.
