Value Lists are used by Settings Templates to specify a list of values to be used during a migration. Value Lists will recognize most multi-line file formats. 

Note: Value Lists can easily be uploaded in a CSV format.

Value List types

The Transformation Suite current utilizes Value Lists in the following operations:

NameDescription
Shard SetsShard Sets are a list of Users that the Transformation Suite can use for writing in Google Drive. To utilize Value Lists for Shard Sets, upload a list of email addresses containing the set of Users you wish to use for sharding writes.
Location Crawl ListLocation Crawl Lists are a list of Locations that restrict the scope of the Scan to the locations present in the list.

Using Shard Sets will drastically increase performance when migrating a large number of documents to a single Google Drive account.

Documents uploaded using Shard accounts will have the Creator set to the shard account. Modified information and Owner will be set to the desired user accounts.
