It is time to fill SharePoint’s TermStore with useful tags, so people can find the correct material. Luckily TechNet has created an intro to metadata and the TermStore. Now, all I need to do is engage in meta discussions about the meta information.

Update: Metadata is now even more central to SharePoint 2013, and here is the intro to planning managed metadata in SharePoint Server 2013. Of course, this is only the technical walk-through of how to do it. The biggest challenge, for me, has been letting the organization understand the value of metadata. Such as leaving folders behind and using metadata instead.

You can also read more about using folders or metadata in SharePoint 2013, and see best practices for SharePoint 2013, including which 10 blogs to follow. Although I would definitely add Tobias Zimmergren’s blog also.
