Office 365 Classification

Classify Office 365 Objects

Classification of SharePoint Sites in Office 365 is as important as the classification of Documents. It improves the discoverability and helps users better understand the purpose of the Site. Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams equally benefit from classification.

ProvisionPoint empowers administrators to configure the form which is used to request SharePoint Sites, Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams. Each different request form in ProvisionPoint can include different metadata columns. These metadata columns can be of different data types, including text, choice and people.

The classification data in ProvisionPoint can be visualised to a user to help them understand the purpose of a SharePoint Site, Office 365 Group or Microsoft Team. Classification data can also be used to make it easier for users to find the correct location to file specific information. This improved discoverability can be in the form of a central SharePoint Directory, navigation web parts or custom search solutions.
