Upload a document to a library from another library (or from My Site)
Posted on 2010-08-18
I was asked a question that I am unable to answer so I am hoping someone here can answer it.
Is it possible to upload a document from one sharepoint library to another library (in a different site)?
Here is the main scenario - a user has documents saved to thier My Site document library. She wished to be able to add these documents to libraries on different sites. Here is an example of this usage -
A project manager has a document detailing the steps involved in completeing a project. This document is considered reference material.
Each project has it's own site in SharePoint and thus it's own set of libraries - one of these libraries is for reference material.
The project manager, who runs serveral projects, wishes to upload that reference document to multiple reference libraries (each in different sites). How is this possible?
Sure, she could save it on the C: drive and pull it from there, but that is a poor answer and not very usable as there are potentially many documents to be delt with. So how can you copy a document from one library to another? Specifically from a library in My Site to another site?
Site Content and Structure sort of works if you move documents within a ste sollection. But if My Sites are involved, this does not work.
Thanks in advance!
