I have to automate moving of one particular document from one folder to another folder with in a SharePoint library (when ever its updated or every Monday). Each time i copy this particular document to another folder i dont want to replace the previously copied document but create a different version of it.

For example if i am copying "Doc1" from folder 1 to folder 2 on every Monday or every time the document is updated. I want all the versions of this document without deleting the older ones.

Any suggestions.

    Why don't you just use the SharePoint's document versioning feature? support.office.com/en-us/article/…

  • I already have versioning enabled on Folder 1 but the requirement is to keep a copy of all the versions of a specific document in Folder 1 to Folder 2. @akbarali
