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

I need my workflow to move library documents into a folder in the same document library. I can copy items, then delete the original item. I'm not seeing how to specify a folder or sub-folder, just the list itself. I'm just not seeing it (therefor it is probably right in front of my nose!)

If you use SharePoint 2010 designer, you can try to use this activity.

While this looks like an EXCELLENT solution, I'm not sure how to implement. I'm assuming I need to have access to the Admin side of the SP farm? I have never tried to add anything like this ... I have asked our administrators for assistance, but have not gotten word back yet. I have looked at these two sites for assistance: Creating Custon Workflow Activity and Custom Activity Workflow –  Paulster2 Jun 26 '13 at 14:11
@Paulster2, you need to install this activity and create workflow in SharePoint designer.For example you can look at this post –  Alexander Jun 26 '13 at 14:25
I guess my follow-up question was not clear. I know how to create workflows ... I don't know how to install the activity. Sorry for any confusion. –  Paulster2 Jun 26 '13 at 14:41
go to downloads. In the zip package you will find installation guide. –  Alexander Jun 26 '13 at 16:06
this solution requires deployment to the farm. if you develop own solution you need to deploy it too. I do not have any proposal for you now ( –  Alexander Jun 26 '13 at 18:41
