Bulk edit Metadata in SharePoint / Office 365

SharePoint Metadata is information about documents in Document Libraries, that can be used to search, sort, organize or classify your content. Adding Metadata to your document is very important, if you want to differentiate your documents from one another and to allow them to be easily searchable and sortable.

DMS-Shuttle allows you to update SharePoint Metadata in bulk. This feature saves you a lot of time and effort. And it works also for very large lists, which is not always possible with SharePoint Quick Edit.

1. Select a Document Library, a Subfolder or a List of documents where you intend to edit the properties and perform the operation “Bulk Update Document Properties” (per right mouse click and selection in context menu).
