Content Organizer Rule to move a document to a lirary in a subsite

I am using Office 365

I have:
1. Enabled the Content Organizer.
2. Created my document Center with the Drop Off Library.
3. Turn on the feature to "Allow Rulles to Specify Another Site As A Target Location"

I would like to create a Content Organizer Rule to move a document to a library in a subsite.

Presently, I can create rules for the Content Organizer to route the document as long as it is on the same site (e.g. /HR or /Marketing)

When I try to add a rule to a subsite / library, I get an error message:
"A valid target path must be selected"

I need the document to be routed automatically using the Content Organizer.

I am using Office 365 so I do not have access to Central Administration.
I have performed the necessary steps for setting up the Content Organizer Settings and the Content Organizer Rules.
 When I add the url to a different subsite, the the the message about "A valid target path must be selected".
What is the format for a library not on the same site?

Attached are screen shots.

In order to route documents from one site to another, you will need to configure a few things.  First, make sure you have the content organizer enabled in both the source site as well as the destination site.  You don't send directly to a subsite, you daisy chain the content organizers.  Make sure you have set up a send to location in Central Admin for the destination site.
You also need to check the content organizer settings in the source site and make sure you have checked the 'Allow rules to specify another site as target location' option.  You might have already done this, not sure if your 'Send to another site' comment is in regards to the checkbox on the send to location in Central Admin or the one in content organizer settings.
When you define your rule, you should see a radio button that says 'Another content organizer in a different site' with a drop down with your configured send to location.  Choose this, and then configure the rule on the destination site for the library it needs to land in.

The Central Admin part may be the problem.
I am using Office 365.
There is no way to access Central Admin...
What about a work around.
I need to move the document not copy to another site.
