The Items to import step appears as shown below:

2.

Click 'Browse...'  button to add and remove the folders and files for import.

3. The Select items to import dialog appears as shown below:

4. Select items to import dialog contains a textbox (top), tree-view (top-left) and a list-view (top-right), which provides explorer like view to select folder / file to import. You will also see a textbox (middle) and a tree-view (bottom-left), which enables selection of destination location to import folders / files.
5. Browse the source folders and files of your local machine and network shares and select the required folders and files from list view (top right pane). Select a destination location or enter the destination location URL in the textbox and click Add button to import selected items.

6 The selected folders and files added for import will be displayed in the Items added for import grid. Dockit processes the top-level folders and files added for import in the order in which it appears in the Items added for import grid. The import process order can be changed by the navigation buttons available in the right side of the grid.

Importing file versions: You may use this order sequence feature appropriately, when you have to import different file versions (with the same name) in the specified sequence. This feature is extremely powerful when you have different file versions organized in version folder names.

You can add the folders version1, version2, version3 etc. to the destination location in this intended order or use the navigation buttons to the right of the grid to order them. Dockit will automatically process the added folders / files in the order in which it appears in the grid. Specify the appropriate settings in the File Settings wizard step to handle file versions correctly.

If you need to import different versions of files that are suffixed with its version number as - D:\Document Store\Sample_v1.txt, D:\Document Store\Sample_v2.txt, D:\Document Store\Sample_v3.txt etc, click Import Document Versions... for step by step guide to import them as a single file with versions.

Click OK button to proceed or click Cancel to discard the changes.

9. To make the import process easier for users, Dockit provides an ability to specify the content to import from the source folder structure. To specify the folder settings to use in the destination SharePoint library and the necessary files to import, perform the steps as given below:

Use   button to edit the folder traversal option for folders that are added in Items added for import grid view. 

A Folder Traversal dialog appears as shown below.



The top-level folder is the folder added or specified for import by the user. Dockit will commence the import process from this top-level folder. Select the appropriate option to create the top-level folder by selecting the option buttons (Yes/No).

Select any of the following folder options given below to specify the content to be imported from the source folders in file system:
  1. Import files and retain source sub-folder structure - This option imports folders and files exactly as they are in source file system. The source folder structure in the file system will be retained in the destination location.
  2. Import all files including sub-folders, but ignore sub-folder structure - This option imports files only and ignore its source folder structure in the file system. Note: Specify the appropriate options in File Settings step to handle situations where same filenames may be available for more than one file in different source folder hierarchy (sub-folders).
  3. Import files in the top-level folders only - This option imports files available in the top-level folders only. Dockit will not traverse the sub-folders within the top level folders.
  4. Import sub-folder structure only and ignore all files - This option creates the sub-folder structure in the destination location and ignores all files that are available within the added folder and sub-folders.
  5. Do not import any content - This option does not import any content (sub-folders and files) from the source folder added for import. This option will be useful when you want to create the top-level folder only and ignore all its content.

Note: Folder Traversal option is not applicable for file.
