Subject: DataONE Sharepoint – E-Mailing Attachments to Sharepoint
Hi Dr. Davis,
I am interested in archiving attachments sent to me via e-mail into the DataONE SharePoint site.
I did some research and was able to enable the service by more or less following the instructions described here:
I also described in detail what I did here:
Essentially, forwarding an e-mail with attachment(s) to the e-mail address I set up, [redacted], deposits the attachment into a folder in the root directory (cics/dataone/) that is linked to my user name.
That means I have a “tjessel” folder where anything I e-mail to [redacted] is archived.
If you were to e-mail something, a “miriams” folder would be created.
There is an option to have a new folder created based on subject heading, but I thought that could get messy, and besides, I thought it’d be good to keep things organized by who created it.
Another key point that I figure you’ll be interested in is only people with access to the site can forward documents with attachments. This is important to prevent spam.
Here’s where I’ve run into a problem:
I want to move documents from my “tjessel” folder to the “Network Analysis” folder you created.
I was able to do one at a time by clicking the check box next to each document and clicking “move to.”
I think this is a bottle-neck in my workflow though.
Do you happen to know if this is a permissions problem, or can you really only move one document at a time to another folder?
I thought if you did not know yourself, you might be able to pass my inquiry along.
Thanks for any help,
