I am trying to build a very simple SPD workflow on a document library. All i need is that when a document is uploaded, a copy of this document is copied to another library in the site collection (not same subsite (web)).

The SPD action copy list item seems to only allow me to copy the item to a library in the same Web. Is there a way to have the SPD copy the document to a library in the parent Web? I prefer a no-code workflow.


Since SharePoint 2010 there is an out-of-the-box Content Organizer which uses a Drop Off library and based on rules 'distributes' documents

This 3 part blog is a great starting point
