In this post we will discuss how we can move documents from one list to another list with preserving the metadata like created, modified date or created and modified by. In this example I have a list in my top site in my sharepoint 2013 online site and I want to move that list item to a child site.
Here you can see in the below MyAnnouncement list I have one item which was created in November 27.
And we will try to move this item to other list where it will display the modified same as this date.
Go to the site settings and then click on “Content and structure” which is under Site Administration. This will open the site content and structure page.
There select the particular list from which you want to move or copy the item.
Then in the right side select the items which you want to move or copy and then click on Actions -> Move…
This will open a dialog box Specify the destination to move the items you selected. There you can choose the subsite and then the particular list to where you want to move. Then click on OK.
Then it will process to move the item and once it is finished you will be able to see the items like below. As you can see here the item is added (moved) today but the modified date did not change.
Hope this will be helpful to you.
