3.You have the following two additional options on this screen:

oLoad Entire Sub-Site Structure - Will load the entire sub-site hierarchy below the current site. To expedite the loading process, no additional objects will be loaded into the sub-site. You may double-click on any sub-site to load its objects individually.

oLoad Entire Sub-Site Structure and Objects - Will load the entire sub-site hierarchy below the current site along with all their objects.

4.​Click Finish. The Essentials software will automatically detect the SharePoint authentication mechanism and your client environment. Depending on your configuration, you may be connected automatically or prompted for your credentials. Here are some of the possible scenarios:

·Option 1: If your SharePoint environment is using Integrated Windows Authentication and you are accessing this environment from a computer that is logged into the same domain, then no user/password information is necessary. Press the Next button and you will automatically log in using the credentials of the currently logged in user.

info

NOTE: If you do not wish to use the credentials of the currently logged in user, set the "Use local system credentials" (located in Help>Profile Manager>Global Variables) to false.

·Option 2: If your SharePoint environment is using Integrated Windows Authentication and you are accessing this environment from a computer that is NOT logged into the same domain then enter your user name, password and Domain in the provided fields and click Next.

·Option 3: If your SharePoint environment is using Form Based Authentication then enter your user name, password and Domain in the provided fields and click Next.

·Option 4: If your SharePoint environment is using Kerberos Authentication please refer to our FAQ area. Detailed configuration instructions are available there.

·Option 5: If your SharePoint environment is Hosted, such as (Office 365, BPOS, FPWeb, etc.) you should be able to connect by entering your user account and password, no differently than any other SharePoint environment.

·Option 6: Password Manager can store account credentials in protected storage to connect to SharePoint. For more information on setting up Password Manager, please refer to our FAQ area.

info

NOTE:

·The domain name may also be entered as a part of the user field in either the domain user or the user@domain syntax.

·If you have Digest Authentication enabled, please disable it. It can interfere with the tool’s ability to connect to SharePoint using Windows Authentication.

·If your SharePoint environment is accessed through a Proxy connection, then it must be configured prior to establishing a connection. To use a Proxy connection, check the Use Proxy check box. If you need to verify or modify the Proxy Configuration click on the Proxy Configuration button (see the appendix Configuring a Proxy Server section for additional information).

A window requesting a user, password, and domain will pop up. Provide the requested information and click Connect.
