get URL for uploading document to a document library in SharePoint 2013 Online

I got a requirement to give the URL of the upload page for the particular document library in the left navigation. So I was searching for the upload page document library URL.

The upload page URL for the document library should be like below:

http://SiteColURL/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List={GUID of document library}

Example:

https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List={C0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F}

To get the GUID of the document library you can go to the Library Settings page and from the URL you will be able to see the GUID:

https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/listedit.aspx?List=%7BC0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F%7D

In my case the id is: %7BC0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F%7D

Here just replace %7B with “{” and %7D with “}”

So the GUID will be {C0610063-8D28-4B80-B2BC-6AFFC8346C2F}.

  • This is GREAT! Thank you! One more question – after the file is uploaded … what can I do to enable a re-direct to another page? Perhaps a “thank you for uploading your file” … 🙂
