I need an Out of the Box (OTB) or SharePoint Designer solution for this:

 I have a SharePoint 2013 Document Library.

 I want to Archive items in this document library that meet the following criteria:  

 STATUS = Not Approved, Delivered, or Canceled Last modified is >= 90 days since last modification was made

How would I create a workflow to archive items that meet the criteria in SharePoint Designer 2013? This requires specific stes if at all possible.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Create a new column name it STATUS. then create a workflow make the condition if Status is equal to Not Approved, Else if the Status is equal to Delivered etc.. regarding the retention of 90 days i need to check my lab and see if this is doable.

Hi,
unfortunately if you use SharePoint Foundation 2013 there is no OOTB solution - in SharePoint Server edition you can use the retention policies.
Therefore a workflow is the only non-programmable solution.
Here is a beautiful blog post, describing the necessary steps (querying the document library, moving documents ...):
http://plumsail.com/blog/2014/06/how-to-move-documents-using-workflow-in-sharepoint-2013-and-office-365/
Also the scheduling to run the workflow daily is mentioned.

Alternative way would be a Powershell script - which is coding, yes, but in my eyes also an OOTB solution as there is no need for any deployment. And the script can easily be scheduled.

What would the script be to accomplish this?
