Microsoft SharePoint Online is a file hosting, cloud-based service that lets you easily store and manage your documents. 

Microsoft SharePoint connector allows the downloading of source content and uploading of translations to/from the SharePoint server.

SharePoint Connector Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • Project Managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository
  • Set up the Automation Widget so Submitters can add files to requests directly from the online repository.
  • Use Automated Project Creation to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in the last modified date is detected for monitored files or a folder.
    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs
  • The Connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have Memsource notify 3rd party systems about certain events (for example, a job status change).
