Meta-data transfer when files are uploaded to a sharepoint site

asked on January 19

Does anyone know of a way to upload files from laserfiche into sharepoint, and have sharepoint keep the integrity of the laserfiche metadata?

Thanks

Sue

Laserfiche doesn't have any products that send to SharePoint, though I assume someone has written a small program to do that at some point. At a basic level, it's not very hard. Though I'm not sure what you mean by "keep the integrity of the Laserfiche metadata".

All my files in the laserfiche repository have structured metadata attached. So far while I can export from laserfiche to one drive and then to SharePoint, this method immediately loses the metadata. Sharepoint has the ability to retain metadata in its file structure, but it's starting to look like I have rebuild the metadata for each file I transfer. For a small amount of files, that would be not too bad. But I have a lot of files lol.... I was just hoping someone had figured out a way to have the two programs talk to each other. I know there is integration with O365, but I don't think it is to the level of transferring metadata between the programs.

Hi Sue,

Is there a specific reason you need to move the files into SharePoint? Laserfiche has an integration with SharePoint that allows you to include Laserfiche entries in searches made within SharePoint without having to outright move them. Thanks!

Hi Justin,

They want to bring the LF files into a SharePoint Library as PDFs. I know the integration will allow a file move from SharePoint into Laserfiche, but they want to pull from Laserfiche into Sharepoint. At this point I would be just happy with a workflow that would bring over the metadata from the LF file to the PDF for Records Management integrity.
