SharePoint Document Tagger Beta Released

Document Tagger logotypeSharePoint is an excellent platform for sharing and for storage of documents, but when the libraries grow big it is often difficult to get an overview of the documents and quickly find the one you need. Now Business Solutions offers a solution to this problem: Document Tagger for SharePoint. The Beta version was been released yesterday.

Not only does Document Tagger help you tag documents and presentations in SharePoint libraries but the solution also gives additional possibilities to manage them.

With Document Tagger you can
  • Upload and tag a file in one flow
  • Tag one or several files that are already uploaded to a SharePoint library
  • Find related documents by clicking a tag
  • Group keywords and metadata by category for a better overview
  • Filter documents by tag
  • Create views to show documents tagged with one or several keywords
  • 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
Some of these are SharePoint features that Document Tagger helps you to make better use of, others are new features that Document Tagger adds to SharePoint 2010 Foundation or Enterprise.

OpenCalais logotype
The Beta version of Document Tagger uses the OpenCalais Web Service for the text analysis, and when we have perfected the SharePoint integration of Document Tagger we will give more options for how the analysis should be performed. In this Beta release we have instead focused very much on the user interface and on making the usage as streamlined as possible.

We have a detailed manual that I recommend you study. Microsoft certified SharePoint specialist Peter Kalmström has also made several video demonstrations where he explains the benefits of using tags, and you can find them all in the playlist below.

Now we are eager to hear comments from evaluators. You are welcome to download the Document Tagger .wsp file, upload it to your site collection, activate it and try it. Then please contact us and tell us how you like it!
