Not able to prompt for metadata entry on file upload.


  • I was expecting that if I set a document library to require a specific column, that it should prompt for that info upon a file being uploaded to the library. Instead what I am seeing is that a user is allowed to upload a file to the library without the metadata, but simply will see in the details screen that the required metadata is missing. The problem is that it doesn't seem that at any point it rejects the file for missing the metadata or alerts the user via modal that the metadata is missing.

    I would like to see a solution to prompt the user for metadata during the upload process, so that required fields are not missing when the file is saved to the document library. Is this achievable with SharePoint Online?
