On Deck: Enhanced Document Upload 2.0

Hi Everyone – wanted to share some exciting news. The next major release of the Enhanced Document Upload solution will be out soon (hopefully before Christmas if I can get the testing and documentation completed). Besides bug fixes and code improvements, 2.0 has some exciting new features – including a major update to the Common Properties Editor.

The new solution allows you to select which fields you want to update across the selected items:

Only selected fields will be updated. This has been a much requested feature and I am pleased to finally offer it to you. And – as a ‘Christmas Gift’ to my 1.x customers – the 2.x solution will be a no-charge upgrade! Look for the solution on the blog in the coming days.

Happy Holidays!


Enhanced Document Upload for SharePoint 2013 Released!

Hi everyone! I am very happy to release the SharePoint 2013 version of my popular Enhanced Document Upload solution. You can download the new version from here. Like its 2010 counterpart, this version seamlessly integrates with the native SharePoint upload experience – so your users don’t need to learn any new commands or steps to upload and tag their documents.

Here is a short video of the solution in action:

Check it out – and as always I appreciate your feedback and comments.

On Deck: Enhanced Document Upload for SharePoint 2013

Hi everyone. Busy week on the blog. Finishing it up with my progress on the SharePoint 2013 version of the Enhanced Document Upload solution. Like its 2010 counterpart this solution enhances the native multi-document upload experience in SharePoint – allowing you to manage and set required fields for multiple documents as they are uploaded. The 2013 version leverages and seamlessly integrates with the native drag-and-drop upload experience. I feel this is very important – in many cases the best solutions are the simplest and most transparent. No need for a complicated UI when a simple one will do. The solution also includes the Common Properties Editor so you can bulk change and check-in items at any time.

Some early screenshots:

I expect to release the solution within the next week or so. Pricing and support will be identical to the 2010 version ($299/Farm with yearly maintenance and support for $1000/per license). If you have any questions about this new version please don’t hesitate to contact me.
