How can I set custom properties for Document Library RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are setting up a document library where the content will be a set of folder and documents inside it. What I would like to have is a some way to set up metadata information on the document library level. I need some additional information more than the title and description available when a document library is created. I have a set up content types to the document library but they get applied to all contents inside the document library which is not what I want.

    So when I see the page where all document libraries for the site is displayed, apart from the name, description and last modified, I need to add more columns to represent what the contents of document library represents.

     

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    I think this could not be achieved. You can add additional data using SPFolder.Properties, for this you can refer to this article, but the data would be invisible through UI. So I would still recommend you to put things into Name and Description.
