We know this is not a folder OR metadata discussion. It’s about figuring out when it’s correct – to use what. Each has its place and works better in certain scenarios. Keep in mind that synced libraries work better with folders and of course your Microsoft Team uses folders for the channels to store documents in. It’s also much easier to create a #MicrosoftFlow to move data to folders in OneDrive or SharePoint. Metadata definitively still has its place – make sure you understand when and where to use it. In the next video I’ll show you how to create those metadata columns.

Purpose of this blog challenge:  I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found  https://tracyvanderschyff.com/microsoft-365/ . I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
