Modify the view for Files Tab
We use metadata to organize documents instead of placing documents in specific folders since many documents apply to several channels. Folders are very restrictive. Using metadata provides greater flexibility in how users access and view the documents. For example, our Program Operations Team documents have a column for Program, Topic, and Doc Type. We have several views set up to accommodate the various audiences. For example, User A wants to see all of the Program A documents regardless of what the Topic or Doc Type is. User B wants to see all of the Topic XYZ documents regardless of the Program or Doc Type. User C wants to see all of the Report doc types regardless of Program or Topic. It is possible to do this with the current setup by adding all files to the General folder and creating views. Each channel has a website tab with the corresponding view. However the auto-generated Files tab now becomes useless. Rather than give the option to move or delete, allow the view to be customized.
Also the ability to view metadata columns in Files tab.
