In this post we will discuss how to configure Send To URL in SharePoint Central Administration in SharePoint 2010. If you want to enable Retention for a sharepoint list and if you want the action as "Transfer to another location" then you need to configure Send To URL before configuring Retention settings.

So before going to central administration, Go to site settings and click on "Manage site features" from Site Actions section.
This will open the Features page, Search for "Content Organizer" feature and click on Activate if it is not activated.
Once the feature got activated you will see the link "Content Organizer Settings" under Site Administration section in Site Settings page. Click on the link and go to the Submission Points section in the "Content Organizer: Settings" page. Then copy the OfficialFile.asmx web service URL.
Now Open SharePoint 2010 Central Administration and click on "Configure send to connections" from General Application Settings section. In the next page, go to the Connection Settings section and give a Display name, and give the Send To URL (the OfficialFile.asmx web service URL which we have copied from the Content Organizer: Settings page.)
Here also you can chose the Send To action like Copy/Move etc. and then click on OK. Now the Send To URL is configured.
