SharePoint Syntex uses AI to organize & manage content, optimize search and compliance, generate content, and improve your most critical business processes. Today, we’re proud to announce two integrations to make it simpler to turn content processed by Syntex into knowledge in Microsoft Viva Topics.
If you’re rolling out Viva Topics, you may already have a wealth of information in your taxonomy service (formerly "Managed Metadata Services" or MMS). To help you get started, we've integrated the Syntex taxonomy service with Topics. Syntex can manage and build business taxonomies automatically from the content you save to libraries across Microsoft 365. Then Topics can use those taxonomy tags to prebuild topic pages, and automatically attach tagged documents to the topic pages as new content is found and tagged. This feature was released in February 2022 and is tracked as Roadmap ID 82049.
Automatically build topics from the term store
If you need extra levels of security for sensitive content, Syntex can automatically apply Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) sensitivity labels to content before it’s indexed by Viva Topics. Then you can pick sensitivity labels to exclude SharePoint sites and files from topic discovery. Any description or alternate names extracted from those files will also be removed from the AI-suggested topic. (Roadmap ID 82047 and 82048)
Add extracted entities as new terms to an open term set - If no existing match is found, Syntex models will extend a term set automatically as new content is discovered. And you can use new terms to build new topic pages in Viva Topics. (Public roadmap ID 93230)
Refinement rules for document understanding extractor models – You can now add simple rules to select from multiple values or remove duplicates when multiple extracted values are found. (Public roadmap ID 88952)
Refine extracted values without writing code
We’re excited to share these new and upcoming features with you and look forward to hearing from you – our customers and partners – on how they’re used in your content processes.
