  • Hi Jeraldjp,

    If I understand you correctlty is that you want to upload document(s) using drag and drop and then simultaneously set custom metadata fields like 3-digit department name.

    This is not possible using OOTB SharePoint. Even when one of the fields is required it will not prompt the user.

    There are custom solutions (3rd party) that address this. See e.g.
    I am affiliated with the vendor of SLIM Companion. This single page application (and soon available as App in the Office Store) provides functionality to select Content Types and set custom metadata when using drag and drop of documents (and folders). See e.g. (skip 1st 3 minutes).

  • Good Tool,

    my requirement is so simple..and talking about document library 

    There is option to drag and drop upload in sharepoint 365. when drag and drop, files are not uploading to the correct location if its not properly drag.. ( drag into particular dept) to avoid this meta tag has to popup while drag and drop before upload..

    Its possible some custom coding..
