ECM Headers and Footers for SharePoint

Automatically insert important metadata from SharePoint into the Header or Footer of your Office Documents.

ECM Headers & Footers Overview

ECM Headers and Footers allows an organization to automatically tag Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with metadata from your SharePoint environment. Examples of metadata include version number, document id, create date, path, and other content type column values.


  • Apply Headers or Footers to your SharePoint content in Bulk.
  • Create Header/Footer profiles for individual SharePoint document libraries or Site Collections.
  • Schedule a process to insert headers and footers on documents whenever a new document is added or updated in SharePoint.
  • Option to tag on Word, Excel and/or PowerPoint documents.
  • Allow custom formatting of your header or footer like positioning and field labels.
  • Option to Publish your document as a Major Version when a document has a Header or Footer inserted.
  • Ability to keep the current version of a document in SharePoint when a document is tagged.
  • Option to only tag a document with a Header or Footer if a specified Content Type exists on a document.
  • Option to include a border around your Header or Footer.
  • Left, right or center your Header or Footer.
  • Ability to add custom text to your document Header or Footer.
  • Specify which pages you want your Header/Footer applied to (First page only, All Pages, Last Page Only, Even Pages Only, Odd Pages Only).
  • Control which font, style and size to be used.
  • Apply ECM Headers or Footers to your existing SharePoint documents.
  • Initiate tagging of documents via a Workflow.
  • Create Labels to customize how your Header/Footer looks.

Organizations also have the option to configure ECM Headers and Footers to work with a workflow so content in SharePoint can be tagged on demand. For example, you can initialize a Nintex workflow to call a web service. When a call has been executed, that specified document will be tagged with a Header or Footer. Alternatively, you can apply a Yes/No column to a document. When that field is marked Yes, that document will have their header or footer applied.
