How does SharePoint Classifier work?

Classify data stored within Microsoft SharePoint using the familiar and intuitive interface provided by all Classifier products. A bulk document classifying feature enables you to classify large volumes of documents as they are uploaded to SharePoint quickly and efficiently.

Once documents are classified, their access can be controlled so they can only be viewed or accessed by those individuals within your organisation with appropriate classification rights. This means you can get more out of using SharePoint with the peace of mind that only controlled sharing can bring.


  • Save time by classifying all of your documents in SharePoint

    SharePoint Classifier can label any type of file stored within SharePoint in accordance with your data protection policy so that your users don’t have to waste valuable time classifying each type of file before uploading it.

  • Simplify control over data access

    By assigning classification rights to groups of your users you can simplify your SharePoint access control policy, ensuring that users can only see or access documents appropriate to their role.

  • Make your users more data aware

    With classifications clearly identified when viewing and organising the content of a SharePoint document library, users become more aware of the value of data and its protection requirements.

  • Easy set up for all your Classifier products

    The full Boldon James suite of products is driven by Classifier Administration which enables your classification scheme and policy to be set up centrally and then rolled out among the Classifier products that you choose to use, ensuring that you apply policy consistently.
