copy file sharepoint - keep Content Type and Metadata



Currently, when a file is copied in SharePoint using the "Copy File" action, it loses it's Content Type and Metadata. In addition, no numeric File ID is returned by the Action, so I can't use "Update File Properties" etc.



1. In addition to the "Overwrite" checkbox add the "Copy Metadata" checkbox that would transfer over all the metadata, including content type (if present in the destination Document Library)


2. Ensure that the FIle Copy action returns the numeric File ID that other actions require. Or update all other Sharepoint actions to work with Indentifier ("\path\file.ext") - whichever is easier.
