Importing to multiple destinations

Import files from multiple folder locations (local/network drives and network shares) to a destination library in SharePoint, if certain conditions (or rules) are satisfied. You can run the import process at scheduled intervals. You can create rules based on file created date, last modified date field, file type filters and metadata values. You can define a set of conditions to be satisfied for DocKIT to import files to the destination library at periodic intervals. DocKIT will automatically import only the files that satisfy the conditions (or rules) at predefined intervals.
