Reporting and Re-Mapping Users and Templates

Reporting functionality is included with most products.  Reports provide various information, from site contents to list and site templates used in your environment.  Reports also have a dual purpose of providing the source information for mapping templates and users; and bulk deleting content.

Remapping Content Types

During an item copy or in-place tagging, users can re-map content types.  The new content type must be present in the target library.

1.Drill down into a list and select the items you would like to copy.

2.Drag and drop those items into the target list.

3.In the second screen of the Copy Items Wizard, select the new content type by using the drop-down box.  The application will automatically re-map any common fields.  You can enter metadata directly or re-map other fields manually.

4.Click ‘Finish’ to start the copy operation.

List and Site Content Reports

This report is accessible from the Ribbon menu or the right-click menu on a site or list level. It produces an itemized list of all contents within a specific site collection, site or list in a comma separated values format (.csv). This report can be opened in a spreadsheet and used to analyze the content and its metadata.

Site Selection

This screen is used to specify a specific site for which the report will be run. It is only triggered if the user selects the List or Site Contents Report without first selecting a specific site or list. The screen is bypassed if the option is selected from the Navigator page.


NOTE: One advantage of using the ribbon/menu is that the report can be run for any site, whether or not it has been loaded into the tool.
