Html5 SharePoint Bulk File Upload Web Part

Virto Html5 SharePoint Bulk File Upload Settings

When the web part is installed, you need just to add it to a SharePoint site page and adjust it to start using. Navigate to the web part settings block.

First of all select the source list and folder (not required) where the files will be uploaded to.

Then decide which of the checkboxes you will enable.

  • Overwrite existing files – allows you to enable/disable overwriting of files which already exist in the list.

  • Show "Overwrite" option – makes visible the “Overwrite existing files” checkbox.

  • Allow changing destination folder – allows users to upload files to another place.

  • Replace SharePoint invalid file name characters – automatically replaces name characters which are not valid for SharePoint;

  • Enable "Set all files properties" button – makes visible the "Set all files properties" button.

You can set maximum file size (the size of uploaded files) and maximum upload size (the maximum total size). Or just leave 0 to set no limits.

If you need to define the allowed types of files, just type extensions separated by comma or leave field empty to allow all types.

There you can select predefined fields, which are available to uploaded files editing.

Instead of all properties like in example below, you can select required fields only.

Also, you can predefine selected field values.

All uploaded files fields are filled automatically with predefined values as default values.

You can predefine fields values from query string.

Prefix for query parameters is used when you need to define values from query string for this Virto HTML5 Bulk File Upload web part specifically.

Click “Create query string” and choose allowed fields, then click “Next” and generate a new string.

Copy the string value and paste it in your browser in the end of a URL of web parts page.

Now your uploaded files have predefined fields values.

Then apply the settings to the web part (use “Apply”) and you can start using the uploader right now.
