    Document Creation

    Creating document requires the following inputs:

    • Location (folder or document library)
    • Document template
    • Document name
    • Content type (optional, the default is [Document])

    Document template is a regular document itself which serves as a template (initial draft) for the document being created.

    The remote templates (from SharePoint server) and its corresponding documents must be in the same site-collection/root-web.  The remote templates can be in any sub-webs or descendant containers of that site collection.

    Document templates are provided from two sources:

    • [Local Templates] are the files on the local file system which are provided from [C:\{XMetaL}\Template\].
    • [Remote Templates] are the files on SharePoint server which can be configured via [Setup Remote Templates].
      • The remote templates can be selected and grouped in folder-like structure.
      • [Remote Templates] configuration is saved in [%appdata%\SoftQuad\XMetaL Cms\SharePoint2\dat\templates\remote.json].

    [Recent Templates] is used for quick access to the recently used templates.

    • [Recent Templates] is saved in [%appdata%\SoftQuad\XMetaL Cms\SharePoint2\dat\templates\recent.json].

    [Setup Remote Templates]

    • [DblClick/F2] – rename template group.
    • [Del] – remove template group or template file.
    • [Ctrl+Up/Ctrl+Down] – move template group or template file up/down in the list.
    • [Ctrl + C/X/V] – move/copy template files between template groups.
    • Any empty template groups will be removed during save.

    If a document contains required fields, the document will not be checked in after creation.
