Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 2.3 - Advanced Installation Guide

Columns for Uploading Content using CSV

1.Source File - Identifies the physical path to the file that will be uploaded.

2.Target SharePoint Site - Identifies the target site for the file listed in the source file column. The field is left blank by default but may be specified to upload content into different sites and lists using the same CSV file.

info

NOTE: In order to take advantage of this feature the CSV file must be uploaded on a site not a list level.

3.Target SharePoint List - Identifies the target list for the import

4.SharePoint File Name - Identifies the SharePoint item name that will be used for the import ( "/" is used to identify folders)

5.Content Type - Identifies the SharePoint content type that will be used for the import.

info

NOTE: This content type should already exist within the target SharePoint list and must be spelled exactly the same way to avoid errors.

6.Custom Fields - Any custom fields would be listed following the content type.

info

NOTE: These fields must already exist within the target SharePoint list (and content Type). The values entered here must also pass any SharePoint validation or restrictions for the corresponding field.  If the field is multi-value enabled and you wish to apply two or more, please separate each value with a pipe character and a trialing space.  For example, if I wanted to apply the terms Apple and Orange to a managed metadata column here is how it would look in the CSV file:  Apple| Orange .  That is "Apple" pipe character space "Orange".

7.Created At - Identifies the content creation date which is extracted from the file system. If left blank the value will be set to the current date and time.

8.CSV ID Col - This is a reserved field utilized for incremental copy functionality. Do not enter anything into this field.

9.Modified At - Identifies the last content modification date which is extracted from the file system. If left blank the value will be set to the current date and time.

10.Created By - Identifies the user who created the content. If left blank the value will be set to the user currently logged into SharePoint.

11.Modified By - Identifies the user who last modified the content. If left blank the value will be set to the user currently logged into SharePoint.

12.Mark Version - For versioned libraries, identifies the version level for the item being imported ("Major" or "Minor"). If a quasi-versioning system was used in the file system, this field along with the SharePoint File Name can be used to recreate the versions in SharePoint. In order to implement this functionality, use the same file name in the SharePoint File Name field and then specify the appropriate version level in this field. If left blank, the default version level will be used during import.

13.Version Comment - Specifies the comment that will be used when importing items
