Preserve (some) document properties

There are some properties that’s usually already bundled with your documents. Like maybe the title, author, comments and categories. Ok, usually only author and title but still.

To get pull these values along when adding a document to a document library you can add the following columns (line text)

_Commentimage

_Status

_Categories

_Author

 

Neat thing is that these properties works both ways. Edit the columns in SP and it shows up in the document properties.
