In order to organise information and make that information easier to find and work with, you can label or categorise information. With files and items in Microsoft SharePoint, you can apply metadata, which could be a category, a classification, or a tag, in order to organise your content and make it easier to work with.
In most organisations, the most effective way to implement metadata is through a defined taxonomy that you have standardised through stakeholder input. This enables users to select metadata terms from a predefined list, which provides standard results.
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 can further enhance the application of metadata by using content types. Organisations can use content types to standardise specific types of files, documents, or list items and include metadata requirements, document templates, retention settings, and workflow directly.
