SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was itended to create a custom "Send to Location" in the menu for archiving purpose. In sharepoint 2010, I have managed to setup a new option "Archive Documents" in Central Administration > General Application Settings > Configure Send To Connections, and the webservice url is something similar to this: "http://servername/Sharepoint Portal/_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx"

Then when I go to the document library and try to send to "Archive Documents", I get some error message like this: The Archive Documents site is not properly configured for this request.

Then after I retry, I get some error Updates are currently disallowed on GET requests. To allow updates on a GET, set the 'AllowUnsafeUpdates' property on SPWeb.

Does anyone come across issue like this?

Have you enabled the content organiser in the Archive Documents site?

It turns out one approach for the setting of customise Send to is on the library level. Here is the detail:

  1. Go to Library Settings -> Advanced Settings.
  2. In Custom Send To Destination, input targeting library name and URL

Then you will find one extra option in the send to list.
