Move Item Widget

Move Item Widget

The Move Item widget moves a list or library item from one list or library to another. Fields that exist in both the source and target lists are copied. The item is first copied to the target list, and then deleted from the source list.

Icon-Warning Widget Limitation: The source and target list types and column types must match or the Move Item widget will fail.

Widget Properties:

    • To move a different item in the current list or an item in another list, site, or site collection, select External List Lookup and make the desired selections in the Site Collection, Site, and List boxes. To identify the item in the list that you want to move, select a Filter Field and enter a match criteria in the Equals box, either by typing one or by adding a lookup using the Add Lookup (Button-AddLookup) icon.
