xstream sharepoint document auto title

The XStream SharePoint Document Auto Title web part automates the filling in of the "Title" column for newly uploaded documents in SharePoint.


​When uploading documents to SharePoint, a user is required to fill in the "Title" column (a SharePoint metadata column associated with documents in libraries). Typically, the user will fill in the "Title" column by copying and pasting the file name (minus the extension) of each uploaded document.


By utilizing the XStream SharePoint Document Auto Title product, SharePoint users are removed from performing such tedious and manual work. The product allows the "Title" column to be automatically filled in with the file name of the uploaded document. In addition, by adjusting the product's configuration settings, custom prefix and/or postfix text can be automatically added to the "Title" column (along with the file name of the uploaded document). The capability to incorporate custom text allows organizations to conform to their document naming standards.

KEY FEATURES

XStream SharePoint Document Auto Title is the first event receiver-driven product that immediately auto-fills the "Title" column with the file name of the uploaded document. Other products adopt a less efficient approach by forcing SharePoint Administrators to run timer jobs or workflows at scheduled intervals.

Auto Fill the "Title" Column Immediately

Custom Prefix and Postfix Text

The auto fill of the "Title" column does not have to be based only on the file name of the uploaded document. For maximum flexibility (and to conform to any document naming standard that may exist in your organization), the auto fill can also include custom prefix text (i.e., text appearing before the file name) and/or custom postfix text (i.e., text appearing after the file name). Additionally, a SharePoint Administrator can specify a list column (available from the document library) as part of the composition of the prefix and/or postfix text. When a list column is specified, its value will be included within the prefix and/or postfix text of the "Title" column when a document is uploaded.
