How can I copy a document from one document library to another document library and save versioning? The Copy to SharePoint action DOES NOT save versioning. Emily Billing
Hi Emily, just thought I would chime in on this, however I think that the only way to do this would be to use the Powershell action in Nintex. I have found that other than powershell, the only tool that can copy documents with versions is ShareGate. I do not think that there is a way to automate ShareGate, like with Nintex.
Here is a thread on copying Documents with versioning in Powershell. Copying Documents With Version History
You are correct. We do own Sharegate....which is awesome by the way! With Sharegate, our SharePoint developer is able to schedule a job to run that will be able to utilize Sharegate and copy documents from one library to another and maintain the versioning.
Well, in the past we wrote a custom action for nintex to achieve just this. Basically you need to re-create all versions by copying every single version.
For the hard-core techies: maybe god-ol' Frontpage extensions author.dll could preserve versions: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ms440627(v=office.14).aspx. (just a thought, haven't tried this yet)
