SharePoint 2013| Transfer to another location

    Question

  • Hi,

    The Retention Policy in SharePoint provides an option to transfer to another location (as explained in following URL). I would like to understand if it is possible to do the same operation using a SP2013 Workflow without having to rely on a Retention Policy?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    By using Retention Policy, user can move a document from one location to another or create a copy of a document and send it to another location. Documents can be sent across site, site collection.

    You cannot copy list item across site collections with the help of SharePoint Designer. You can do this by creating workflows using Visual Studio. The the only option is Programming.

    Thanks.
