The solution allows to quickly attach precise terms to SharePoint content items and documents, reflecting the controlled vocabulary of the specific business sector or academic discipline. After automatic assignment managed metadata can be used to highly increase content findability, e.g. using term filters, additional navigations and search refiners. Assigning managed metadata often is the only way to overcome the well-known list view threshold issue in SharePoint to manage document libraries with more than 5.000 items. By default SharePoint offers a manual content classification feature only.
Content classification rules, item and document properties and metadata, information store context and textual document contents are considered with the auto-classification. You can adjust the vocabulary terms and the corresponding rules that govern indexing, to assign highly accurate and consistent subject metadata to content objects. The rule-building form and the classification rule syntax are highly intuitive and do not require any programming.
Metadata can be assigned automatically on document upload, using the bulk-tagging feature on a per-library base or using timer jobs for whole webs, lists, content types etc.
