So, I've come across a requirement where the business user needs the below functionality:

- User creates item in List A.  List A form has a dropdown of departments that the user will select from.

- Once submitted, a workflow should move/copy the list item in List A to List B.

- List B has a folder for each department choice option.  Workflow must move/copy the list item from A into the correct department folder in List B.

 

I've tried Copy Item action, but this only allows me to copy the list item from List A into the root of List B, not the folders.  Also, version history is not copied over with the item.

 

I've tried Copy to SharePoint, but using the URL {WebURL}/SiteName/Lists/List B/Department SubFolder gives an error that that there isn't a list located at that URL location.

 

Wondering if any Web Services or a Web Request action could perform what's needed.
