So, I’m moving into an apartment in the near future. Following that, I will have to learn how to manage my documents and ensure I can find them back in time. I’ve thought of a few solutions, one of them being what I do now – where I simply have a folder with PDF’s of my documents (I digitalize everything). This works fine now.. (I have like … 20 documents).. But it may not work in 2 years when I have a hundred documents spread over many different corporations and years.
I then thought of making the system searchable. This means, that I have to have a method of indexing all documents, preferably long-term. I thought of making a website, where I attach metadata to each uploaded document (that I make searchable by using OCR). Metadata will then be data like the start and end date, a descriptive title and perhaps one or two categories.
