Set Folder to Single Line Text


The Set Folder to Single Line text plugin will automatically set a default value of any single line text metadata column based on the name of the SharePoint folder a file is being saved to.

An example of where this can be useful would be if your libraries have a sub folder for each document type (e.g. Memo or Letter) and you would like all files saved to that folder to have their Document Type single line text metadata column set automatically as you save to that location.

How it works

Set  Folder to Single Line Text requires the following conditions to be met in order to function:

  • Your MacroView DMF or Message license includes this plugin 
  • You are using MacroView DMF or MacroView message to save a file to SharePoint
  • The save location is a folder
  • The default content type contains the configured single line text metadata column

If all of the above conditions are met the default value for the specified single line text column will be set to the title of the folder where to document is being saved.
