Drop off Library Form


Posted by Dan_C - May 2 ’16 at 03:21

Hello -

Tried creating a form for a drop off library and the content organizer rule didn't seem to be getting triggered.  I reset the form and the content organizer rule fired for the same parameters.

Can forms designer be used in a drop off library?

    Unfortunately, SharePoint does not support custom forms for Drop Off libraries.

    You should try a workaround from this thread:

    Last comment:

    One possible option is to create a SPD Workflow against the 'Drop Off Library' which runs the 'Send Document to Repository' action (affectively submitting back to itself to fire the content organizer)

    If Submit File using Move to the http:///_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx with Routing Document(Output to Variable: Submitted file)

    Set it to run 'on change' (not on create).. and make sure you have at least mandatory field specified (which is checked for in the Workflow IF condition)

    Alternatively, you can take a similar approach

    Unfortunately I found that after I attempted to edit the form with Forms Designer, which didn't work, then reset the drop off library to its default form the managed metadata selection pop up stopped working.

    I cannot delete the drop off library.  I can't do anything with the new form.   Any recommendation on how to fix the managed meta data field pop up of the default form?

    [#2]: We'll need more details on this. Have you successfully reset the forms? Have you added that metadata field yourself? Please provide some screenshots showing the problem.

    [#3]: Thanks.  I think it may actually relate to something else.  If the issue persists I'll let you know.
