Apologies, I didn't explain this part properly - it was the view I was referring to.
Could you explain your suggestion a little further for me? We as a business do not want to use nested folders so only one tier of folders in each library.
However, this could result in having 500 folders.
Folder 1 - contains 1500 docs
Folder 2 - contains 1500 docs
Folder 3 - contains 1500 docs
Folder 4 - contains 1500 docs
Folder 5 - contains 1500 docs
How would the view and search work? if you wanted a business case so searched on that metadata as there is one doc in each of the 500 folders - who would you bring back all of them? Would the search not just crash when it is searching Folder 4 as it has
exceeded the 5000 search/view limit?
Apologies if not making any sense (Still new to this)
