DocumentsCorePack (DCP) integrates with SharePoint and supports saving and managing generated documents in respective SharePoint folders. The Dynamics 365 SharePoint integration enables you to utilize all SharePoint document management abilities, including checking the document in and out, viewing version history, searching capabilities, and more. You can also save on high storage costs with this integration.
This blog article outlines how to activate SharePoint in DCP and the available options for saving a document to SharePoint.
Depending on the context, the following options to save to SharePoint are supported:
1. Via DCP Dialog
In your Dynamics 365, select the [Create document] button from your starting record. The DCP dialog will open. Once you reach the processing settings, a “Save to SharePoint” checkbox allows you to store the file in the SharePoint folder of that record.
2. Via Power Automate
3. Via Dynamics 365 Workflow
In classic Dynamics 365 workflows, you will find an option titled “SaveOnlyIntoTemp” when creating an AutoMergeWorkingItem. If you set this option to “No” the document is saved to the SharePoint folder of the respective record.
