AppliedSiteFeatures Element (Upgrade)

Supplies a list of site collection Features to be marked as "provisioned" for site collections created through the new version of Windows SharePoint Services. For example, an announcements list template of the previous version must be mapped to its equivalent announcements Feature in the new version.
<AppliedSiteFeatures> <Feature ID = "GUID" Force = "TRUE" | "FALSE" /> </AppliedSiteFeatures>
The AppliedSiteFeatures element actually activates each feature, including running a feature callout, when the site collection is upgraded. This allows you to run custom code during upgrade, and implement custom features solely for the purpose of doing custom site transformation.
For an example of how this element is used, see Upgrade Definition Schema.
