In a sharepoint site we have activated Content Organizer feature. When a document is uploaded, content organizer check a custom property of the document metadata and redirect the document to an appropiate library based on a set of rules.

What we want is that if a user with edit permissions update this document property, content organizer check again the rules and redirect the document to a new library if it is necessary.

Is this possible?

I'm going to go ahead and say "no".

Here's an interesting article that agrees.

In certain scenarios you would like to be able to re-submit documents when certain metadata of that document is changed. Out of the box this isn’t possible this means you will have to create a custom solution.


  • Thank you Tiago. I don't think it is possible. I am trying to send the file again to the dropoff library with a workflow amd see if it is rerouted. Thank you anyway.
