LinkFixer Advanced allows you to add a SharePoint Online site from within the application. Just go to {☰} | Network Locations | Add | SharePoint. 

Enter your SharePoint Site Collection URL and specify the type of authentication to be used. 

SharePoint authentication types

  1. Windows Authentication - authenticate with the same account logged in on the Windows machine. This only applies to SharePoint on-Premise.
  2. User name/Password authentication - basic non-MFA authentication
  3. Office 365 (for accounts that have MFA or Multi-Factor Authentication Enabled. Use Office 365 with admin consent to retain file's timestamps)
  4. Office 365 with admin consent (for MFA-enabled accounts. This authentication method retains the "modified by," and "modified date and time" fields of the target files.)

Note: Please see this article for a detailed guide on setting up Office 365 authentication: Office 365 Authentication Procedure 

Make sure to click {Test Connection} to ensure credentials and the connection to the SharePoint Online site is successful. 

Important: Please make sure to not only add the SharePoint Online site collection containing files to be processed, but also the root or main SharePoint Online site collection ( Do not select the root or main SharePoint Online site under the Select Folders tab of any LinkFixer Advanced process when processing files for other site collections. The purpose of having the root site added in the LinkFixer Advanced network location is to allow the application to discern between the root site collection of the tenant vs other site collections to be added, resulting in more accurate reporting. 

Once a SharePoint site or site collection has been added, it will then be available under the SharePoint node of the Select Folders tab of any LinkFixer Advanced process. 

Adding Multiple User Accounts to OneDrive or SharePoint Online

An option to use multiple credentials is available to decrease the chances of getting throttled by Microsoft during LinkFixer Advanced processes in SharePoint Online. Please see this article for a detailed guide on setting up multiple SharePoint Online credentials: How do I use the "multiple credentials" feature for SharePoint Online

You will then be able to navigate to the SharePoint Online site in the LinkFixer Advanced Select Folders screen by selecting the appropriate site collection under the “SharePoint” node.
