Uploading files to a SharePoint 2013 document library
A SharePoint tutorial by Peter Kalmstrom
2013 offers sevaral ways to add files to document libraries. In the demo below
Peter Kalmstrom shows both the most common and the more advanced methods.
He also explains the benefits of the different methods and when to use each
one of them.
Peter is the CEO of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, and he is also a Microsoft
certified SharePoint specialist and trainer. He has been recording this tutorial
with the Office 365 version of SharePoint 2013, but most of what he demonstrates
work in the same way in other versions too.
These are the methods shown in the demo:
Create a document directly in the library
Drag one or more files from the local computer
Upload a single document
Upload files using Windows Explorer
Add files from applications that use the standard Windows "Save as" dialog
by adding the SharePoint library path to the Favorites
Add files from applications that do not use the standard Windows
"Save as" dialog by mapping a drive to the SharePoint library
Add files via SharePoint Designer
Peter also shows how to get the files in the document library into the command
prompt, if you want to work with them in the "old school" DOS way.
There is actually one more method, not shown in the demo. You can email enable
the library and send email attachments directly to the library.
here how to do that.
