New MetaVis Cloud Classifier Enhances SharePoint 2010 Metadata Functionality

Allows Users to Classify Content Directly From the SharePoint Interface

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  MetaVis Technologies, Inc., a leader in SharePoint migration, today announced MetaVis Cloud Classifier for SharePoint 2010. The new product allows SharePoint 2010 users to tag and classify multiple items directly from the SharePoint user interface. By integrating directly into the SharePoint Web Interface, Cloud Classifier appears seamlessly in the SharePoint ribbon. Users have more control to add the appropriate metadata to documents extending the value of SharePoint search and improving the user experience.

SharePoint 2010 provides tagging and classification technology but is limited to individual items. This makes classifying multiple documents time consuming and tedious. MetaVis Cloud Classifier allows users to select multiple documents from SharePoint sites, libraries, lists or search results and classify in bulk. Users can also create templates to help classify content for specific projects or activities further simplifying the process. By making classification easy for the user, content becomes more findable and accessible.

MetaVis Cloud Classifier is a SharePoint 2010 feature. Once it is activated any user can access it directly from the toolbar. In addition to basic tagging, Cloud Classifier allows users to:

  • Change content types for multiple selected documents and specify field values;
  • Re-map fields to copy metadata values from one field to another;
  • Enter values directly or select them from standard SharePoint columns including Managed Metadata Fields linked to Term Sets; and
  • Perform metadata enhancement and data classification in SharePoint sites.

"By extending our SharePoint classification solutions to the users via the SharePoint 2010 Web interface, we are able to provide instant access to SharePoint classification technology from anywhere," said Mark Klinchin, CTO of MetaVis Technologies. "At MetaVis, we are committed to helping SharePoint users organize their content through migration, classification and information architecture technology. Cloud Classifier continues this tradition by giving users more control and allowing them to tag items for improved search and organization."
