I m in the middle of setting up Contet types for a SharePoint DMS. I have parent content type as follows.
ABD company Documnets ( parent of this is document content type)
- Document Type ( term store medata filed) e.g Policy, template, Contract
- Site ( term store medata filed)
- Department ( term store medata filed)
Following content type Inherit from the Parent ABD company Documnets
- Expiry date
- Contract Type
The issue is when I create a document in the documnet library it shows as follow.
Name Content Type Document Type Site Department Expiry date Contract Type
123Contract Contract Contract Newton IT 12/02/2022 Hardware
You can see here Contact is repeating two times under the Contnet type and Document Type. So user has to first select the content type ( Contract ) and then when filling the metadata agin user has to add the documnet type(contract) . Are there any way to auto populate document type based on the content type?
Also, IF I create documnet sets for Employee libraray, what is the best possible max numder of documnet set can be stored without facing performance difficulties. We have nearly 700 employees.
