Manage metadata structure on the go while migrating from file server or SharePoint as source by utilizing metadata management tool. Vyapin’s Dockit Migrator comes with the column mapping and external metadata file features which helps you to enhance your existing metadata (or) reorganize the metadata into new structure that is most suitable and SharePoint friendly.
If you have some unwanted junk metadata values in your source SharePoint library and would like to make the metadata values meaningful while migrating to target SharePoint without changing the other column metadata values, then you can make use of external metadata file feature available in Dockit Migrator and get it migrated to target SharePoint by keeping the other columns intact as such in source.
If you have some unwanted junk metadata columns in source library and would not like to migrate those columns to the target SharePoint. Then you can use the ‘Columns’ (exclusion) feature available under ‘List / Site elements to migrate’.
If you have a person or group metadata columns in source SharePoint library and some of the users as a metadata value for this column are no longer available in the organization and you would like to replace these users with some other active users in target SharePoint. Then you can make use of ‘User / Group Mapping’ feature available in Dockit Migrator to replace the inactive users used as a metadata in the person or group column with valid SharePoint user in target SharePoint during migration on the fly.
"We find that Dockit is an extremely valuable tool for migrating intranet content to SharePoint Portal Server. When you are faced a large number of documents to migrate each of which has to be populated with metadata, Dockit reduces considerably the effort involved in publishing information. Typically it reduces the time a user has to spend per document by 75%, by enabling documents to be published in batch mode rather than real time through the standard SPS interface."
