Choose Folder ?

Aug 22, 2011 at 10:04 AM

Hi !

I don't know which advantage this webpart will bring me.

But what i need is that you can choose a folder in a library where the uploaded file shall land in.

Isn't there any easy way to get files directly into a folder in a library ?

Perhaps you can manage to put it in your webpart ?


Any help appreciated !

Hi djdede,

SharePoint 2010 have that feature. I can create something similar in 2007, but with 2010 there can be a waste of time... let me evaluate.

I never say this solution resolve every problem...

I didn't mean your tool should be able to do this. I just wanted to ask.

And well about 2010 is the following problem:

You can choose a folder if you are in the library view and upload.

But if you e.g. write a discussion board post, you can choose insert an then upload a file.

Then you will be able to choose a library, but you can never choose a folder there.

So you have to go in the library, move the file (bad non-professional, because this isnt easy to accomplish for a normal user) and then also relink the file because you moved it . . .

Not your fault i know, it's sharepoint/microsoft fault, but i'm searching for a solution or workaround ;)
