CM104 - Making the most of SharePoint Managed Metadata

Jeff Cate 

When SharePoint’s Managed Metadata feature set was introduced in 2010, it was hailed as “revolutionary” and the most important SharePoint feature to date. Fast forward to 2019– it still provides an awesome set of features that are woven tightly throughout the SharePoint end user experience. But, with all of the emphasis over the past 5 – 7 years on “moving to the cloud,” has it become an underutilized power feature? We believe so.

Attend this session to take a fresh look at the Managed Metadata feature set in SharePoint and hear some stories of its effective use.

CM203 - Managing Content Types in the Modern World

Marc D Anderson 

When the order of the day was huge, pyramid-shaped Site Collections for capabilities like Intranets, managing your Content Types was relatively easy: any Site Columns and Content Types you built in the root site were available throughout the Site Collection. When we needed more enterprise-wide information architecture, we turned to the Content Type Hub. In our new, flatter world, we need to think about information architecture differently while hanging onto the better practices of the past.
