Custom form for Document Library?


Posted by mac_xpert - Sep 18 ’14 at 11:21

Hi -  I'm using Sharepoint 2013 in 365. I'd like to import documents into a document library and during the import let users enter some meta data to link that document to a project and a company, preferably using lookup tables.

I've added the lookup fileds to my document library and created custom forms for new / edit / display, but there is no option to create a custom 'upload' form.

When i try and add a document, i just get the default upload form. Am i doing somthing wrong? Any help appreciated!

Thanks, Matt.

    Hello Matt,

    Thanks for your question.

    Actually, SharePoint documents do not support new forms. You have to upload a document first and then you can edit its properties on the edit form.

    I'd recommend to read the following post describing how to add related documents and set their properties automatically:
