The SharePoint Tagging Feature provides an extensive Taxonomy management solution for SharePoint-based implementations: Document Management; Collaboration workspaces; Portals; Internet web sites. This all-in-one solution supports both Web 2.0-style tagging and hierarchical/structured categories.
Tag Cloud Web Part
The Tag Cloud web part allows you to view your tags in 4 different convenient ways.
- Tag Cloud View: Each tag has a different size which is determined by the ratio of its usage in comparison with other tags. This way it is easier for you to find what your users are using the most, while still having a full picture of all site tags.
- Tag Index View: In this view the tags are listed and sorted alphabetically, for easier access to all tags.
- Category Tree: In this view the tags are displayed as a category tree with parent-child relations.
- Tag Menu: In this view the tags are displayed as a menu bar, easily integrated in SharePoint's Master page to provide logical, cross-site navigation by categories.
Tags Search page
KWizCom Tagging Feature is fully integrated with WSS/MOSS search engine.
Once you click a tag/category, you get all content items (cross site & cross site-collection) that are tagged to the clicked tag. You can click on the item's title to see its details and you can click on the "Subscribe" link (located at the top right corner of the page) in order to receive email notification when an item has been tagged with the tag you selected, or when a tagged item has been modified.
Cross browser support
KWizCom Tagging Feature supports both Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Tagging by anonymous users
The tagging feature supports Anonymous users as well, thus enabling deploying a full tagging solution as a part of Internet web site.
Tagging from Microsoft Office applications
The "Tags" field type was implemented also to enable users to use it from within Office 2007 applications. Users can tag documents directly from the Office 2007 property panel.
Control new tags creation
When creating the "tags" column, you can enable or disable the option to create new tags, by check the "Allow users add new tags" checkbox. This enables you to define a Tags field where content editors can use it to tag content, but cannot add new tags or delete existing tags.
