Bulk edit Content Type in SharePoint / Office 365

When uploading documents to a library with multiple content types, all documents will be assigned to a default content type. Sometimes it is required to update the content type of thousands of documents. DMS-Shuttle provides a feature that solves this problem.

How it works

1. Select a Document Library, a Sub-folder or a couple of documents and perform the operation “Bulk Update Content Types” (per right mouse click and selection in context menu).

2. The tool collects all files  inside the selected structure and displays a dialog where the user can select a new Content Type and choose the versioning option (minor or major version).

3. Hit the “Update” button to complete or “Cancel” to abort the operation.
