SharePoint Plugin - is it restricted to default library Shared Documents only?

Hi,

I understand that by default, SharePoint creates document libraries with URLs following this format:

https://companyname.sharepoint.com/sites/site-name/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx

When using the DSS SharePoint plugin, there is an option to create a "Shared Documents" dataset, which exposes the documents under such URLs.

Some SharePoint sites are set up not to use the default library URL, but instead something like: https://companyname.sharepoint.com/sites/site-name/MyLibrary/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Can the Plugin handle that use case (and if so, how)? Or is it restricted to "Shared Documents", as it seems to be?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi !

    Each preset of the SharePoint plugin is restricted to the library indicated in the "Root directory" section. So in your case, you just have to create a new preset with "MyLibrary" instead of "Shared Documents" and you will be able to access it
