Sharepoint - Move File

There's no option to move file in Sharepoint as an action based on something else. There's copy and delete but that's a clunky solution.

Status: Completed

There are now actions for direct move of flies, and folders, in SharePoint. You can read more about them here:

we need Move, so that the durable link to the file is supported in the move. We already have move between folders within a library supported in the O365 interface, but not between libraries. Requested functionality is to add connector to move file between folders, libraries, and sites in SharePoint.

Seriously. We need a Move to move an approved policy from one folder to another.

The move action should exist for files and items (and even document sets). It should allow to move to a different library/list or folder, with the choice of including the version history or not. The move should keep the original metadata (created, created by, modified, modified by).

Any update on this?


In the interim, is there a way if any file (vs. one specific named file) in the folder 1, once approved, it can be copied to folder 2, then deleted (which obviously would be obsolete with a 'move' option)?


Thanks for any insight.

You can use the Move SharePoint Folder from Library action to move a folder to nested structure of folder or even cross-site.


This action is in "Plumsail SP" connector, which is a part of Plumsail Actions product.


Note, it is a paid third-party solution. But it provides a rich set of actions that simplify working with SharePoint, permissions, and documents.
