Items to import 

To add folders and files to import to the destination location in SharePoint:

1. The Select Files page appears as shown below:

2. Select Files page contains two list-views. One is source list-view and the other one is target list-view. The ribbon's are available for both source and target on the top of their respective list-view's.

3. Browse the source folders and files of your local machine and network shares and select the required folders and files from list view (left pane). Select a destination location from target list-view (right pane) and click '->' button to import selected items.

4 The selected folders and files added for import will be displayed in the Items to Migrate tab. Dockit processes the top-level folders and files added for import in the order in which it appears in the Items to Migrate tab. The import process order can be changed by the navigation buttons available in the right side of the grid.

Importing file versions: You may use this order sequence feature appropriately, when you have to import different file versions (with the same name) in the specified sequence. This feature is extremely powerful when you have different file versions organized in version folder names.

You can add the folders version1, version2, version3 etc. to the destination location in this intended order or use the navigation buttons to the right of the grid to order them. Dockit will automatically process the added folders / files in the order in which it appears in the grid. Specify the appropriate settings in the File Settings wizard step to handle file versions correctly.

8. To make the import process easier for users, Dockit provides an ability to specify the content to import from the source folder structure. To specify the folder settings to use in the destination SharePoint library and the necessary files to import, perform the steps as given below:

Use 'Settings' button to edit the folder traversal option for folders that are added in Items to Migrate  tab view.

A Folder Settings page appears as shown below.



The top-level folder is the folder added or specified for import by the user. Dockit will commence the import process from this top-level folder. Select the appropriate option to create the top-level folder by selecting the option buttons (Yes/No).

Select any of the following folder options given below to specify the content to be imported from the source folders in file system:
  1. Migrate files and retain source sub-folder structure - This option imports folders and files exactly as they are in source file system. The source folder structure in the file system will be retained in the destination location.
  2. Migrate files only and ignore source sub-folder structure - This option imports files only and ignore its source folder structure in the file system. Note: Specify the appropriate options in File Settings step to handle situations where same filenames may be available for more than one file in different source folder hierarchy (sub-folders).
  3. Migrate files in the top-level folders only - This option imports files available in the top-level folders only. Dockit will not traverse the sub-folders within the top level folders.
  4. Migrate sub-folder structure only and ignore all files - This option creates the sub-folder structure in the destination location and ignores all files that are available within the added folder and sub-folders.
  5. Do not migrate any contents - This option does not import any content (sub-folders and files) from the source folder added for import. This option will be useful when you want to create the top-level folder only and ignore all its content.

Note: Folder Traversal option is not applicable for file.
