I am new to share point and gained some basics. I have created a new content-type named "Student Project" with Folder as its parent. Inside that folder, I need a couple of mandatory documents such as Final report and Final Presentation.

Are there any ways to ask/force these documents to be uploaded on creating new Student Project?


Create Document Sets instead of folders! For the Document Set content type in your library, configure Default Content on the Document Set Settings page shown below.

  • Hello! Thank you for your reply. How can I automatically ensure whether they have updated the document or it is still empty? – Anand Jan 30 '17 at 9:00
  • This is not something SharePoint can do for you! You'll need to develop a script or application that checks these documents and generates the appropriate notification(s). SharePoint has rich APIs that will allow you to programmatically do almost anything. – Lars Fastrup Jan 31 '17 at 15:12
