Document Tagger for SharePoint libraries –
Find the right documents by tagging them with keywords
SharePoint site is an excellent platform for sharing and
storage of documents, but when the libraries grow big it
is often difficult to get an overview of the documents and
find the right one among all you have stored.
The kalmstrom.com team has an idea on how to solve the problem
of finding the relevant information in SharePoint libraries:
Document Tagger. The solution is developed
to Beta, but currently there is no development going on
to finish the product.
Here you are welcome to learn how far we have come with
the Beta. When we continue the development there will be
changes, but we will never remove the user's possibility
to approve of tags before adding them to a document. It
is essential to us that you have control over that part!
Document Tagger analyzes and suggests
Document Tagger analyzes your documents and adds
keywords and metadata to your documents and presentations
when you press a button – but not until you have had
a chance to review the suggestions and discard the ones
you don't want.
If you want to add your own metadata, the gold version of
Document Tagger will include them so that you can
use them with the Document Tagger features.
Document Tagger improves the value of your SharePoint
Document Tagger not only helps you tag the documents
and presentations in your library. Document Tagger
also makes it easier and quicker to use those tags to find
the files you need among all you have stored in SharePoint. And
you keep the full control! Before keywords and metadata
you will have a chance to review the suggestions.
Tag documents and benefit from the use of tags
Use the specific Document Tagger features:
Use the tags with standard SharePoint features:
- Upload and tag a file in one flow.
- Tag one or several files that are already uploaded
- Find related documents by clicking a tag.
- Group keywords and metadata by category for a better
- Filter documents by tag.
- Create views to show documents tagged with one or
- Create a page to show keywords and links to documents
tagged with them on the same page.
- Add a Tag Cloud Web Part to a SharePoint page.
These are only some examples. Microsoft certified SharePoint
expert Peter Kalmstrom shows how to do this and more in
Document Tagger demonstrations.
Document Tagger takes care of the tedious task
To manually tag documents with keywords is both boring and
time consuming, so often people avoid doing it or do it
inconsistently. Now Document Tagger can analyze
your text(s) and suggest keywords and metadata to tag them
with. Each keyword is tied to a category, for easier overview
You have full control over what keywords should be used
for your documents. No keywords or metadata will be added
until you approve of it by pressing a button. Before that
you can review the suggested words and phrases and uncheck
those who are not suitable for the document. The gold version
will give even better control by letting you add your own
keywords while checking the suggested ones.
New SharePoint button for metadata extraction
Tagger is a sandboxed solution, installed as a list
app in a SharePoint site collection. It adds a new feature
to SharePoint, and when activated it creates a button for
automatic metadata extraction.
