I'm building an intranet site for our organization's Policies and Proceedures in Sharepoint 2007. In the next 6 months we'll be migrating to Sharepoint 2010. We need to store (and customize search functionalities) for the following kinds of documents: 1) current,
"active" policies 2) policies still underdevelopment, ie "beta" 3) "archived" policies. We want our users to only have permissions to search for "active" policies. We do NOT want search to bring up "beta" and "archived" policies, as it
would be confusing.
From what I understand, in Sharepoint 2007 there is simply an off/on option for whether a library is searchable. Either the entire library is searchable, or the entire library is not searchable. For instance, there is no way to say all documents
in X library with "current" metadata are searchable while those with "beta" or "archived" metadata are not searchable. Do you know if Sharepoint 2010 allows for this kind of search flexibility?
