Dockit Migrator for SharePoint


Migrating content repositories from older versions of SharePoint and legacy or unsupported Document Management and Enterprise Content Management applications can be a challenging task for several reasons. Vyapin strives to build enterprise-grade, feature rich and user-friendly migration solutions for SharePoint and Office 365 to address this critical challenge. We are proud to have released one of the very first file share to SharePoint migration tools in the software industry. Vyapin's SharePoint migration solution has enabled several thousands of our customers solve complex content migration scenarios with panache for over 16 years.

Why Dockit Migrator for SharePoint?

  • Sixth generation SharePoint migration solution supporting migration to SharePoint 2001 / 2003 / 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 and Office 365.
  • Handles a variety of migration scenarios - both simple and complex, with its rich and powerful feature set.
  • The maturity and its adoption by customers over the years makes it The Gold Standard in file share migration for the rest of our competition to catch up with.
  • Terabytes of data migrated from file shares to SharePoint by large multinational corporations in Energy, Oil, Mining, Power and Financial sectors and other Fortune 500 companies in the past 16 years.

Use Cases
a) Consolidate and re-organize site collections, webs, libraries, lists, documents and list items between SharePoint servers or SharePoint versions.
b) Apply complex migration rules to select, filter and move documents / list items and their respective versions to eliminate unwanted or duplicate sites, lists and documents during migration.
c) Apply new metadata, modify existing metadata or reclassify document content types during the migration process to make documents searchable & accessible.
d) Update document metadata to documents that have been migrated to SharePoint using a new metadata file without altering the version stack and the key author and date properties. This feature is extremely useful to tag fresh metadata, re-classify documents and update document properties without affecting the document or file contents.
e) Built-in tools to mine out metadata from documents' custom properties and bulk edit metadata to ensure correct content management and true usability.

Move documents and metadata from file shares to SharePoint libraries
Import or move folders and files along with metadata & NTFS permissions from file shares to SharePoint libraries using Dockit�??s explorer interface or batch file. Dockit allows you to associate metadata of documents stored in an external MS-Excel / CSV file, thereby eliminating the burden of manually entering values to the documents while checking in. This feature is extremely useful when you have the document properties (metadata) stored in a database or spreadsheet or any other third-party DMS / CMS application.

Migrate site collections, webs and lists to SharePoint 2013 / 2016 and Office 365
Migrate or upgrade site collections, sub-sites, lists, libraries and their content along with associated metadata, permissions, views, alerts, web parts (association only), workflows, content types, columns and custom ASPX pages using Dockit�??s explorer interface or batch file.

Assign metadata to documents in SharePoint Libraries using a metadata file
Update document metadata to documents already residing in SharePoint libraries using the field values specified in the metadata file. This feature is extremely useful to update document metadata alone without affecting the original document.

Import data or metadata from MS-Excel / CSV to SharePoint lists
Import, Update (Edit) and Delete list items in a SharePoint List based on the line entries in the batch file (MS-Excel / CSV format). Manage list items residing in multiple SharePoint lists using a single batch file. Dockit allows you to import metadata and its associated file attachments to SharePoint lists such as Tasks, Calendar, Contacts, Survey, Discussion Boards, Announcements, Links, Issue Tracking and Custom Lists. Dockit can also update metadata (column values) for existing SharePoint list items or delete the items, including file attachments in the SharePoint list.

Move documents and metadata from file shares or user home drives to OneDrive for Business (Office 365)
Import folders and files along with metadata & file permissions from file shares or home drives to OneDrive for Business libraries. Migrate content in bulk from users' file shares to their respective OneDrive for Business locations in a single migration task.

Carry forward NTFS permissions
Map NTFS folder & file user / group permissions to equivalent Permissions Levels in the SharePoint sites. Assign SharePoint roles for AD users & groups and apply security settings to the respective folders & files during content migration.

Mine out metadata from documents in file shares
Generate metadata for a list of files / documents residing in file shares or local drives. Mine out metadata from file summary properties and custom properties for various file formats. You can extract document properties associated with Microsoft Office and PDF and file properties from various file types such as JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, HTML, TXT, MSG etc. This feature will be useful to auto-generate folder structures, file list and mine out metadata in various file share locations that are to be migrated to SharePoint.

Collate and cleanse metadata for documents in SharePoint libraries
Generate a full inventory of library / list items in a SharePoint Library or List along with their metadata and export this information to a CSV file. This tool will be extremely useful when you want to clean-up your existing metadata or fill-in missing metadata and input new metadata (re-organize metadata) during content migration to a new SharePoint server.

Pre-migration Validation Checklist to prevent errors
Validate task settings when importing documents and metadata to SharePoint libraries / lists by performing a dry test run to minimize errors during a live import.

Tag document metadata to make them accessible
Dockit migrates folders and documents to SharePoint libraries with the following properties that are important from the source content:

  • Custom metadata properties defined in the external metadata file (CSV / TXT / XLSX)
  • Summary file system properties - Title, Subject, Author, Category, Keywords and Comments
  • File properties such as Manager, Company, Date Last Printed, Date Last Saved, Revision Number, Version, Word Count etc. in the case of MS-Office documents
  • Original Created Date & Last Modified Date of source documents
  • Author (Created By) and Editor (Modified By) of source documents
  • NTFS folder & file security definitions
