Where can I learn about linking/searching for documents?

  Asked By: Andrea    Date: Aug 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 841

I am a BRAND-NEW SharePoint user so I apologize for the lack of
knowledge shown by my question.

In a SharePoint library (probably version 3), what is the best way to
show within a folder that other documents exist in other folders
related to those in this folder? Is there a place where I can learn
about this?

An example to explain my question: If I had a SharePoint document
library for a zoo, I would have folders for each animal type. Someone
looking in the monkey folder, should be alerted to the fact that the
zoo management meeting notes folder has minutes from a meeting in
July, 2005 that concerned monkeys. I do not want multiple copies of
those meeting minutes dispersed throughout the library, they are all
stored in the meeting minutes folder, but someone looking through the
monkey folder should be alerted that meeting minutes exist of
importance to the topic of this folder.

Are you running MOSS or just WSS 3.0? MOSS has a "Best Bets" feature
that exists in the search settings.

In WSS 3.0, at the site collection level, there's a "search keywords"
feature that may or may not be useful in your case.

I'm no search guru, but I think digging into those features may be
helpful, to see if they do what you want them to do.
