LinkFixer Advanced version 5.3 or higher has the ability to allow multiple SharePoint Online IDs to combat throttling. In line with that, a CSV file containing unique SharePoint Online IDs can now be loaded for maximum efficiency and ease-of-use.
How to import multiple SharePoint Online IDs from a CSV file
- Download and open attached file "SharePoint Online IDs Import Template.csv." This will serve as your import file template.
- Specify Authentication method in column A.
UsernamePassword - for basic non-MFA authentication.
Office365NoConsent - for MFA-enabled accounts. This method will not be able to retain the "modified by" and "modified date" fields in files.
Office365 - This is the preferred authentication method for MFA-enabled accounts. This will have the ability to retain the "modified by" and "modified date" fields in files.
- Enter the unique SharePoint Online IDs in column B
- Enter respective passwords in column C. Leave the password field empty for Office365 and Office365NoConsent authentication type.
- Set value to FALSE for column D "Password Encrypted by LFA."
- Save as a CSV file
- Go to the "hamburger" menu on the top-left
- Select "Network Locations"
- Click "Add | SharePoint"
- Enter the SharePoint Online Site collection URL
- Enable "Multiple Credentials" by ticking the box for it.
- Click "Import"
- Locate your CSV file containing your unique SharePoint Online IDs
- Specific to Office365 and Office365NoConsent authentication, the password for each UserID has to be entered. This only needs to be done once per User ID per machine.
- Make sure to click "Test Connection"
- All set!
