Q: How does Metadata help with searching?

Metadata fields are associated with document schemas in order to capture specific data about the files that are put into the document management system. These “tags” are the pieces of information that you typically use when locating or describing the files to others. For example, when storing an Invoice the user may want to capture the ‘Invoice Number’, ‘Customer Name’, ‘Invoice Amount’, ‘Invoice Date’ or other relevant information that can be used to locate and identify a unique Invoice file from all other documents filed. With these key pieces of data users can search for and locate the information they need quickly and efficiently.
