Archiving the list items RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,


    We have some lists which support multiple content types. We would like to archive the existing items in the lists. The archived items should be available for future reference/analysis.


    If I use a workflow to move the items to another list, then should I be creating the multiple contenty types in the new list as well?


    What are the options available in this regard?


    Please provide your valuable inputs in this regard.


    Thanks and Regards,

  • This may work:


    1. Save the original list as a template.

    2. Create a new list based on that template in an archive location.

    3. Remove the items from the original list you no longer want.

    4. Remove the template definition (so that you don't clutter up your gallery).


    In the archive list, you may also want to remove the items that you don't want to be part of the archive.  To cut down on work, you might be able to use a CQWP instead of manually deleting the items.
