Search keywords/metadata in multiple classes in a Library

It would be very helpful to have the ability to search for keywords or metadata in all items in the Library across all document classes. The cross Library search does not adequately address this as it is searching all fields and attachments and only produces the document title. 

We have many similar classes that share metadata or are related in some way. For instance, users often want to look up everything related to a particular project or have the same approvers.

  • Agreed! We definitely have the same need and have been working with AODocs to develop a solution. It does seem to be a "core" function of any document management system to search metadata across libraries to find related documents. Hopefully this will be part of the AODocs solution in the very near future.

  • Would indeed be very usefull. We even use 3 times the same metadata in different document classes (2 times the same category) and have to use Sheets for this multiple class view. 

    Would be a very nice Christmas gift!

  • This would be extremely useful to us as well. We've spent a lot of time trying to design our taxonomy to overcome this problem.
