I have created a content type called "Students" and a list called "Student Records" in a School Site. The Student Records list uses the content type "Students". Once the student has left the school I would like to send the list item to the Reocords Centre. Documentation suggests that the Records Centre can handle list items but how do I get them there OOTB?
The content organizer doesn't see my list content type and it is called a Drop-Off library? Can it handle list items?
Have you enabled in place records feature? Once you do that, you can go to the list settings and under permissions and management you can enable the record declaration settings [provided you have configured at the site collection level that in place records should not be turned on en-masse]
Then you can go to the list and mark the list items as records.
As for routing, I need to check this, but from memory the site or record center where you want to route based on content type and rules, that site must have that content type - same as 'parent' site. Hope it makes sense
