CM102 - Content Types: Love Them or Lose It
Marc D Anderson MVP
For years, one of the most fundamentally powerful capabilities in SharePoint has been Content Types. Content Types should underlie all good information architectures, along with customized metadata (Site Columns) and managed metadata which embodies the taxonomy for *your* organization. Yet far too often SharePoint users simply upload Documents into Document Libraries and wonder why no magic happens.
We’ll demystify some of these basic SharePoint capabilities to show you how you can really make your Intranet, Team Site, or Publishing Sites sing. It doesn’t matter if you’re on SharePoint 2007, 2010, or 2013, or on SharePoint Online in Office 365. With search underlying so much of the value that SharePoint offers these days, a good understanding of these concepts is imperative to ensure your success.
