to use document sets or not RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are going to have 200K customers and some 2 millions documents related to them when we migrate from a current ECM to SharePoint 2010. 

    1) Should we be creating Document Set for each customer...??

    2) Should we be creating Term for every customerId...??


    1) we would like the user to find all documents if the search on customerId.

    2) while registering the document we want them to have an auto complete for the MMS field.

    I am looking for best approach in handling this scenario.

  • Hi Chinkit,

    Document set is used to manage multiple documents as a single entity.

    In your scenario you don’t need document set. You can use Managed Metadata. If you have lots of term to create, you can create them in a CSV file first, then import them into term store. Here is an article about this:
