SharePoint Integration

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates natively with Microsoft 365. SharePoint cloud-based storage solution that allows you to save files online and access them anywhere from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can use SharePoint on your computer or mobile device to securely upload files and edit them online.

By integrating your Webdam portal and SharePoint account, you are able to seamlessly connect assets between the two by automatically moving assets and their fields from your SharePoint account to Webdam, without downloading from SharePoint and re-uploading to Webdam.

This integration is part of the Integrations Hub

How to Use the Integration

After Configuration, all assets in the selected SharePoint folders will be uploaded to your Webdam after 2 hours. Moving forward, any assets and data added or moved to the selected folder (or sub-folders) in the configured Sharepoint account will automatically be uploaded to Webdam after about 2 hours. Only supported Webdam-supported asset types will sync.

If the asset already exists in Webdam, the integration will not duplicate the asset. If you delete an asset from your Sharepoint account, it will not automatically be removed from your Webdam. If you delete a Sharepoint asset from your Webdam folder, it will remain in your Sharepoint account.

If you would like an additional synced SharePoint folder, you must configure another SharePoint workflow.
