New Experience - Drag & Drop into meta-data grouping from desktop
I have a document library with meta-data associated and they appear in a grouped by view. This meta-data field is mandatory.
Currently when i drag & drop from the desktop, it creates the list item without associating the meta-data. I must then perform another action to tag the content & check the file in. Very annoying & time consuming.
It would be great if i could drag & drop directly to the grouping of existing content and SharePoint would automaticaly set the values for this new item based on where i'm drag & dropping.
This would save users a great deal of time when dealing with structured content & help with classification and adoption.
Agreed. We have to disable drag & drop when fields are required. It is totally not intuitive for end users - they do not realize that a drag and drop puts the file in the library as checked-out and no one else can see the file. They get no indication that it happened. So we just disable it because it is useless.
