We are using SharePoint Online with Office 365. When you make a copy using the Send To... / Copy command you can display the Copy source in the target library in a column. Is there any way to display if a document has any copies in another location? I mean in the "origin" document library have a column to show if a connected copy exists. Thank you!


Not by Default, because it is saved in the "copied" item. The source-item doesn´t know if it is copied (btw. it coudld even be copied multiple times).

  • Thank you! If it is not possible by default, is there any workaround? I only need to indicate if (one or more) copies exist or not. – Rita Aug 26 '15 at 10:55
  • As your platform is SharepointOnline, the only Option is to include a Javascript on the page which adds the requested Information using the Javascript Clientobjectmodel. – Leopold Lerch Aug 26 '15 at 10:58
