Cognit developed a tool that helps you upload files in bulk to Office 365. This speeds up the migration of Office365 greatly.
Office 365 Bulk Uploader
Cognit develops custom solutions for Dynamics CRM, Office 365 and SharePoint.
We also developed the SharePoint Mass Uploader tool.
This solution greatly speeds up the migration to Office 365. Even though SharePoint has the option to upload multiple files at the same time, this method has several limitations.
UPLOADING MULTIPLE FILES TO SHAREPOINT: THE LIMITATIONS
Probably the biggest limitation is the fact that important metadata is lost during the migration. This metadata (tags) enriches documents with data that can come in handy when searching the document library. Examples of tags are: author, date of last edit, data of creation, ..
Especially when dealing with large document libraries, this information is crucial for the platform to be fast and efficient.
OFFICE 365 BULK UPLOADER: THE POSSIBILITIES
The Mass Metadata Update feature allows you to include all the metadata you want to the files. It is no longer needed to do this separately for each file. Instead, it can be applied multiple files within the same subfolder. If needed, you can also add metadata to files with the same name or properties. When you have assigned the correct metadata to the files, you can upload them securely. The bulk uploader will immediately check for any conflicts. After migrating, you will still be in control. You can double check the Migration Logging to see if all files have been migrated successfully and you will receive a notification if any files have been corrupted during the process.
