The Taxonomy Tiles for Windows® App enables users to upload documents to SharePoint Online from Windows Explorer without having to navigate to SharePoint pages or Microsoft Teams® channels. Documents that are dropped onto a Tile are assigned the specified Content Type and default metadata. Tiles can also be configured to monitor specific Windows® folders and automatically upload files that are put into these folders.
Tiles can be configured by individual end users or in the Tile Gallery, which enables Administrators to configure and assign Tiles to specific Users, or to SharePoint and/or Active Directory Security Groups. Tiles from the Gallery are automatically deployed to Users’ desktop App and can be marked as required, which means users cannot modify or delete them.
Taxonomy Tiles for Windows enables uploads of large batches of files (e.g. during a content migration), as well as cross-tenant uploads for organizations that have more than on O365 tenant (e.g. Multinational Organizations).
