  • 1) If you just want to disappear document from document library you could add new column to maintain state of document (yes/no field with name: Deleted). Next you configure default view of document library to show only documents which are not Deleted. And customize your workflow to set Deleted to yes on workflow end.

    2) in sharepoint 2010 enterprise you could use also Retention policies on document libraries to transfer document to Archive document library.

    or how do you mean "record references"

    Please let me know if my post was helpful.
