Upload Document to Sharepoint with custom metadata creates V2.0

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

When we upload a document to a Sharepoint Library (with major versions active) with custom metadata it always creates two versions:

 

- 1.0 Upload Document

- 2.0 Set Metadata

 

This produces that if we enable some restore versions functionallity, users can restore v.1.0 (version without custom metadata fields filled).

 

Is this the normal functionallity? Is there any way to avoid that and create only the first version?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,


 


This is the default behaviour, maybe you can try to enable 'Require Check Out' in the versioning setting then when you upload the document through SmartObject set the property 'Continue If Checked Out' to true


 


I believe this way will create one version only.


 


hope that helps.

Hi Mustafa,

 

Thanks, we tried and it works, then using this configuration we need to do some adjustments to deal with version restoring but your answer is correct!

 

Thanks!
