There are three ways to attach Smart Folders to physical folders.
Each method assigns a Smart Folder Template to a physical folder, which is then
immediately available to all users.
Type-based Smart Folders
Type-based Smart Folders replicate a Smart Folder structure and apply it to many folders of a specific type, or carrying a specific aspect.
System Smart Folders
System Smart Folders are best used when you want to see content (that is distributed across the repository) in context; for example, all my files, or all files that are tagged as confidential.
Custom Smart Folders
Custom Smart Folders are similar to System Smart Folders, except that you select the template from anywhere in your repository.
