Managing Project Documents in Sharepoint - Step 2 - Setting up a Document Library
It is possible to set up a document library for each individual project. However, given that a list of projects is now available a single document library can be created which will have a custom column specifying which project the document is associated with.
It is relatively easy to set up a new Library in Sharepoint.
Click on the "Libraries" link that is normally visible in the left pane of the Sharepoint display.
Click on the
icon towards the upper left part of the screen. In the next screen enter a name such as "My Project Library" in the entry box on the right hand part of the screen and choose "Document Library"
Customize the library by choosing the Library Tab in the Library Tools and clicking on Library Settings as shown below.
In the Columns section choose Add Column and configure a new column named "Project" as shown below;
You can now upload documents for all projects into this library. You will be asked to pick a project when the file is uploaded. As a result it will be important to keep the project list up to date.
The next step it to set up a Page for your project.
