Document Tagger for SharePoint Beta 1

1 INTRODUCTION Document Tagger for SharePoint tags document and presentations in SharePoint libraries with keywords, which helps organizations to take full advantage of their site's metadata driven SharePoint Search feature. The solution also adds new possibilities to benefit from metadata added to documents and presentations. Document Tagger sends your document to a language processing engine, which quickly analyzes it and suggests suitable keywords for it. This way the addition of SharePoint metadata is much quicker than adding each word manually. Better search is just one advantage. With tags you can easily analyze and categorize your documents in different ways, and you can create SharePoint views and forms using tags.

1.1 PROCESS Document Tagger sends the text(s) you want to have analyzed to a language processing engine that analyzes the text(s) and sends back suggestions on suitable keywords. Review the suggestions and then click a button to apply the tagging. You can find a detailed description of the possibilities Document Tagger gives in sections 3 and 4 of this manual.

1.2 1.2.1

TEXT ANALYSIS LANGUAGE PROCESSING SERVICE

This Beta version of Document Tagger uses the OpenCalais Web Service for the text analysis and offers no other options. OpenCalais is a service provided by Thomson Reuters, but even though it is world leading the keyword suggestions might not be optimal for your needs. When we have perfected the SharePoint integration of Document Tagger we will look to other natural language processing engines/vendors and give more options for how the analysis should be performed. In this Beta release of Document Tagger we have instead focused very much the on the user interface and on making the usage as streamlined as possible.

1.2.2

RELEVANCE

Systems for text analysis are continuously improved, but semantic word processing is still a young science and you will probably some suggestions you don’t want to use. For best result you should therefore always review the keyword suggestions and uncheck the ones you find irrelevant. Document Tagger still makes the process of tagging documents much easier and quicker that the manual adding.

1.2.3

SECURITY

When Document Tagger is used on documents and presentations they are sent to the kalmstrom.com server and then transferred to the OpenCalais web service for for analysis and then back to the kalmstrom.com server again. All transfers use a secure https:// connection. Neither kalmstrom.com nor OpenCalais claim any rights to the submitted content or retain any copy of it. Instead the content is purged immediately after the successful extraction of metadata. Also refer to the OpenCalais Privacy statement. Document Tagger for SharePoint Beta 2

1.3 LANGUAGES The language of Document Tagger Beta is English, but the released version will automatically set the language to the same as of the SharePoint site if it is one of these: Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. For other SharePoint languages English will be used. Which languages we will support for document analysis depends on which back-end services we will team up with. OpenCalais currently supports English, French and Spanish.

1.4 REQUIREMENTS To use Document Tagger you need to have SharePoint 2010 (in-house or hosted) or Office 365 SharePoint. (SharePoint 2013 is currently not supported, but the kalmstrom.com developers plan to add support for the 2013 version of SharePoint also to the released version.)

1.5 FORMATS The Beta version of Document Tagger supports DOCX and PPTX files. More formats, like PDF, will be added later.

1.6 LOOKUP TAGS AND SOCIAL TAGS There are many ways of adding metadata to SharePoint. Document Tagger uses two sets of words or phrases to describe pieces of information, the lookup tags and the social tags. The lookup tags have the advantage of supporting SharePoint Foundation, while the social tags can only be fully used in the Enterprise version.

Lookup tags are shown in a tags list, which is automatically built up when new tags are used. Lookup tags are only used for one site.

The lookup tags of each document may be shown in the SharePoint library view, refer to Modify View to See Tags.

Social tags are are shown on the Tags & Notes page and are normally used in the whole SharePoint farm. Users can see their own tags and in the Tag profile page they can share information about each tag.

The Beta version of Document Tagger adds the checked keywords to both Tags and Notes and to a Lookup tags list, DT Tags, created by Document Tagger. In the released version there will be a possibility to select to generate either lookup tags or social tags, or both. We are also considering a farm-solution which can work with a custom managed metadata field.

1.7 KNOWN ISSUES There are two known issues in the Beta release of Document Tagger: In the document Edit form, pressing the Tag Documents button will cancel any other edits in this form. If you upload a file, change the filename/title or other metadata and then press the Tag Document button and add some or all of the suggested new tags, the edits made before pressing the Tag Document button will be cancelled. The chosen tags will be added and the file will be uploaded, but the new title/new filename or other metadata will not be saved.

Document Tagger for SharePoint Beta 4

To avoid this, make any changes you wish but don’t save them at the same time as you save the suggested keywords. Make your changes before or after saving the keywords and save your changes separately. Then they will be kept. If you use the "Tag Documents" button on a document with existing tags, those tags will be over-written. In this Beta version of Document Tagger we have focused on making it easy to add tags. Before the gold release we will add features for working with existing tags in a good way too.

2 INSTALLATION OF DOCUMENT TAGGER 2.1 INTRODUCTION Document Tagger is installed as a SharePoint Solution in the Site Collection, and it needs to be activated for each site where it will be used.

2.2 INSTALL AND ACTIVATE FOR SITE COLLECTION Download the file DocumentTagger.wsp from the kalmstrom.com website to any folder on your computer. Then go to the root site of the SharePoint Site Collection where you want to use Document Tagger and select Site Actions and then Site Settings. If you don’t see this option, most likely you don’t have the appropriate permissions. You need to be the Site Collection Administrator to install solutions. Under Galleries, select “Solutions”.

Next step is to upload the Solution – which is the .wsp file you downloaded from the kalmstrom.com website. Click on the Solutions tab if the Upload Solution button is not visible. Then browse to the file DocumentTagger.wsp on your computer.

When the file is uploaded you will be shown a dialog where you can activate the solution. Don’t worry if you get a warning message. Document Tagger is intended for easier modification of data, but the solution will do what you tell it to do, nothing more.

When this is done, Document Tagger is available for all sites in this Site Collection.

If your SharePoint farm has many site collections you need to do this for each site collection, but on request kalmstrom.com Business Solutions can provide Powershell scripts that can be run to mass-deploy Document Tagger.

2.3 ACTIVATE ON SITE When Document Tagger is installed in the Site Collection you need to activate the solution for each site it should be used on. Go to the site where you want to activate Document Tagger and once again select Site Actions and the Site Settings. Then select “Manage site features” under Site Actions. If you don’t see this option, most likely you don’t have the appropriate permissions. You need to be a site owner or site designer to manage site features. Now you will see the Document Tagger entry. Click on the Activate button to activate it.

Now the Document Tagger will make a semantic analysis of the text you have selected and add suggested keywords under a new Tag document field of the dialog.

(Look through the suggested words and uncheck the ones you want to discard because they are not relevant or useful. This is a quick task, as Document Tagger categorizes the keywords and shows a small symbol for each category. Click Save to tag the document with the checked keywords. Now the selected tags will be applied to the documents and saved as both lookup tags and social tags. If the multiple files option is visible and you select to upload multiple files, you should upload first and then follow the instrcutions in Tag already uploaded files.

3.2 TAG ALREADY UPLOADED FILES If you want to tag documents that are already present in the SharePoint library, select the document(s) you want to tag with keywords and press the Document Tagger button in the ribbon.

In the dialog that opens, press the Start Extracting button to send the document to the language processing engine for analyze.

Now the Tags column to the right starts to fill up with suggested keywords. By default all of them are checked and will be applied to the documents when you click Apply tags, but you should look through the list and uncheck the ones that are not relevant.

3.3 MODIFY VIEW TO SEE TAGS

To see the lookup tags in a library, modify the view so that tags are included: Library >Modify view.

3.5 ADD YOUR OWN TAGS If you want to complement the keywords suggested by Document Tagger with your own, you can do that after the tagging with Document Tagger. The Beta version overwrites your own tags if you run Document Tagger after your own tagging. We will correct this in the gold version, but we don’t see it as a big problem as the manual tagging normally only is done after the tagging with Document Tagger, if needed.

Add lookup tags: Select the document and press the Edit properties button in the SharePoint ribbon. Then add appropriate tags from the list of existing keywords.
