How to rename invalid characters while importing files to SharePoint


How can I set DocKIT to change ‘&’ to ‘and’ when migrating files?


You have to use Folder & File Renaming Rules feature available in DocKIT to rename invalid characters in SharePoint. Please perform the following steps:

  1. Open ‘Template Manager’ by clicking ‘Tools –> Template Manager’.
  2. Go to ‘Replace Illegal Characters’.
  3. Click ‘New’ to create new template.
  4. Specify,

              & in Find textbox

              And in Replace textbox

  5. Click Add button.
  6. Finally, provide the name, save and close ‘Template Manager’

Once you have created the renaming rule template as stated above, you can use this newly created renaming template under File Renaming Rule in the Items to import step of Dockit task wizard (as shown below).
