Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part for SharePoint – part of the Layer2 Knowledge Management Suite

The Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part for SharePoint can render taxonomies of managed metadata and enterprise keywords right from the SharePoint term store and also social tags as flat A-Z index directory or glossary of terms.


Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part for SharePoint - Overview

An A-Z index or glossary of terms is well known from almost any technical book. The Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part offers a similar feature for SharePoint portals. Tags or terms are retrieved automatically from the SharePoint Term Store with a given start node. They can be linked to the corresponding SharePoint Tag Profile Pages, Hashtag Profile Pages (new in SharePoint 2013), Wiki pages, custom pages or, alternatively, via search directly to the portal content that was already classified with the selected term or tag.

Microsoft SharePoint Metadata Directory or Glossar
Fig.: Sample usage of the Layer2 Tag Directory Web Part for SharePoint. Output and links can be flexible customized using XSLT-based templates, e.g. with tooltips, usage count etc.
The Web Part offers additional metadata navigations to browse the corporate knowledge alphabetically - cross site-collection, and independent of the content store's structure. The Web Part makes it very easy and fast to find information for users, that don't know, where the information is originally located. A great step forward and a "must-have" for employee portals, intranets, extranets and corporate Internet sites. If used as a company-wide glossary of terms it helps to build a common corporate language and understanding.
Please note, that a hierarchical tree-style navigation is additionally available with Layer2 Tag Navigation Web Part for SharePoint.
