Changing System Property Types

  Asked By: Jessica    Date: Nov 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 854

Does anyone know of a way of changing the system property types from text to
multivalue lists? I would like the default Author to appear when checking
in a document but then also a list of selectable values available in case
the Author property is empty.

I can see how to add a new property  type to the profile and make it a
multivalue list, but not any of the system  properties. I would say that if
this is possible at all, you have to delve into development-land and
customize Sharepoint's code. That's not something I can help with.

While I have not looked at this, I wonder if you were to customize this, what
would it break? The Authors property  is a property that is used in the
promotion/demotion of Office documents. I would suggest that you tread down this
patch carefully.
