Assign document properties as metadata for SharePoint columns

Question:

Does Dockit Migrator for SharePoint propagate custom document properties defined in documents?

Applies to: Dockit Migrator for SharePoint 10.x, 9.x, 8.x, 7.x

Answer:

Dockit imports the file properties that are visible in Summary tab of file properties in Windows Explorer, namely - Subject, Author, Category, Keywords, and Comments for all documents, except image files such as JPG, GIF.

For MS-Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Title, Manager, Company, Application Name, Word Count, Slide Count etc. file properties can also be imported using Dockit. The custom Microsoft Office document properties (available in Custom tab in document Properties screen) will be propagated to SharePoint library automatically when a column with same name exists in the SharePoint library.
