SharePoint has recently made it possible to change the URL of a SharePoint site. MetaShare will however not automatically get a notification of a changed site URL so if you change the URL, the workspace will not be found. If you want to change the URL of a workspace’s corresponding site, there are two ways to do it:
Method 1 – Create a new site
The easiest way to change the URL of a workspace’s corresponding site, without having to contact MetaShare support is to:
- Create a new workspace, with the desired URL.
- Move the documents from the old workspace to the new one.
- Delete the old workspace.
Method 2 – Change the site’s URL
You can change the URL of a a workspace’s corresponding site but then you will have to contact MetaShare support that will link the new URL to the MetaShare workspace.
