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...??

    Requirement: 

    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.

    Thanks, 

    Chinkit

  • 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:
