"Document profiles" on SPS 2003

  Asked By: Ricardo    Date: Jan 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1161

Can anyone tell me how I can add custom properties to documents in a specific
document library in SPS 2003, as it was possible in SPS 2001 with the creation
of document profiles. Maybe I missed something, but I have been looking for that
info all around in SPS help, and have not been able to find it.

Follow these steps:

1. Open your document  library.
2. In the left menu, select Modify Settings and Columns.
3. Under the Columns sections, you will see a list of existing metadata fields
or properties. By default, only the title field exists.
4. Click the Add a new column link.
5. Enter the appropriate information for this metadata field.
6. Click the OK button.
7. The new metadata field is now added under the Columns section.

I suppose you are referring to the sharepoint document  library, and not the
backward compatible doc library. You can go to the document library setting to
add/remove the properties. Bear in mind that the concept of "document profile"
does not exist in the new version. You can add extra properties to doc
libraries, and you will be able to search with the new properties. The downside
is that you have to do it to every one of libraries, instead of defining the doc
profile once.

I am new to Sharepoint and we are using SPS 2003¡ I may be
misunderstanding you. I think you could just define the properties by adding a
column in the DataSheet view and then Save that library as a template (Under
General Settings). This would add this template as an option when you create
Document Libraries. You could also edit the Submit/Edit Forms before saving as a
template if you wanted to. Of course this will not change existing Document
libraries. You would have to edit them in the Data Sheet view.
