Are you trying to organize your documents in SharePoint and scratching your head as to how to name your docs? Perhaps you have different types of documents, like meeting notes, schedules, budgets, etc.? While you can tag your documents against various properties, like document owner, revision, etc., one of the most common “drop-down” choices is Document Types (as shown in image below).

SharePoint Document Library



In case you want to take advantage of this, I summarized all the frequently used SharePoint Document Types in a slide deck below. While every organization is unique and you will have your own document types as well, this list covers most common types of documents. So feel free to download this slide deck and copy and paste the list into your column drop-down choices or Term Store. Enjoy!
