I got a document library in our new upcoming intranet and I want to make it force metadata when users start saving files into it, but I have plenty of problems.
1. It works when saving files from office 2007 word, excel and pp. Outlook, however, doesn't force user to give in metadata.
2. When I navigate in browser to the library and select upload files It opens a popup window to force metadata. This works fine BUT if I hit cancel on the metadata popup the file is still uploaded to the library, but it has no metadata whatsoever.
3. When I explore on windows and save files using drag and drop, it saves all the files into the library, but doesn't force any metadata.
Since we're planning to give up all the folders, it will be a big mess when users start saving files and they can, accidently or intentionally skip giving in metadata.
