Manage Metadata- Preserve and enhance metadata such as created and modified information or assign new metadata values while uploading.

Manage Folder Metadata- Extract metadata from file system folders and map to SharePoint columns, all while optionally removing or flattening folders.

Retain Permissions- File system permissions are automatically mapped to SharePoint permissions during upload.

Clean Content- Automatically replace invalid SharePoint characters in your file and folder names.

Upload via Spreadsheet- Upload files and metadata from file system to SharePoint using an Excel or CSV spreadsheet.

Manage Versions- Create true versioned documents in SharePoint based on pseudo-versioning in your file system.

Schedule Migrations- Schedule SharePoint Migrations for overnight or weekend operations to minimize interactions with the business users.
