A common use case is that end users of your DMS want to change attributes in any category of existing documents without uploading another version of that documents. The new in-place importer allows you to do just that.
The process for changing certain attributes on existing documents could look like following.
Initial situation: End users want to change attributes on all documents in folder XYZ.
- As a migration-center administrator you setup an OpenText Content Server scanner to scan all documents in folder XYZ, create an OpenText in-place migration set and export the attributes of all documents into a CSV file.
- You hand the CSV file to the end users, who then can change any attributes they like.
- Once you get the changed CSV file back, use our small Excel migration set import tool to load the CSV file back into migration-center. Your migration set will then contain all the changes made by the end users.
- Finally, you import the migration set into the same repository in order to change the attributes of the existing documents
