Key Features:

Import folders & files and metadata

Import folders and files along with metadata (external metadata file and file properties) from file system to SharePoint library based on the folders/files manually added by the user using the DocKIT user interface.

Import documents from a batch descriptor file

Import folders and files along with metadata (external metadata file and file properties) from file system to SharePoint library based on the entries in the batch descriptor file.

Apply metadata to documents from metadata file

Update document properties to documents already residing in a SharePoint library using the values specified in the metadata file.

Import to multiple destinations

DocKIT enables simultaneous import of documents into multiple document libraries located in a SharePoint Site.

Import external metadata of documents

DocKIT allows you to import metadata of documents stored in an external file, thereby eliminating the burden of manually entering values to the documents while checking in. This feature is extremely useful if you have the document properties (metadata) stored in a database or spreadsheet or any other application.

Import file system properties

DocKIT imports file system properties ('Summary' properties) - Title, Subject, Author, Category, Keywords, and Comments and applies it to the respective documents in SharePoint. DocKIT imports Manager and Company file properties and all other custom file properties in the case of MS-Office documents.

DocKIT also imports the original Created Date and Last Modified Date in the file system and assigns it to the respective date field columns in SharePoint library (Note: DocKIT Web Services component must be installed in the SharePoint Server to propagate the date fields correctly).

These features are extremely useful if you want to store the original file system property values in therespective SharePoint columns.

Import multiple file versions

DocKIT imports multiple file versions of documents in the source folder in the user specified order (version sequence).

Tasks Manager

DocKIT creates import tasks and maintains task history in a task oriented interface. Create a scheduled task or store the task settings and manually run the task on-demand. Keep track of all import tasks performed using DocKIT. Task Manager internally uses the familiar Windows task scheduler to run import tasks at different time intervals - daily, monthly, weekly etc.

Task Validation

Validates task settings and performs a dry test run in order to minimize errors during a live import.

Re-import Task

Re-imports folders / files that files during the first attempt by a simple click of a button.

Schedule Task
Schedule task allows you to schedule the import process at specified scheduled intervals. DocKIT imports the documents to SharePoint based on the import settings and task schedule.
