Yes, it is possible.

You need to add an additional Initial Mapping to Component Name property.

See my attached screenshot.

Can you do this with a TIF file? I'm using VP 2012. I created a property called Component Name but can't seem to map to it. I would like to take a whole lot of legacy TIF files from an old system and put them in the Vault. If I could map the filename to Item that would be great - Or even if I add a custom vault property to the tif file and then map that to the Item.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice.

You should be able to map to the filename of the file and use it as the item number.

Other properties on a TIF file I am not sure about.
