Can move or copy document library views from one library to another library in SharePoint. Any tool for use this.

1 Answer 1


Actually, there is no a direct way to do that but I think no need to use a tool if you applied the below workaround:

  • Save the document library (that has the views) as a template without include content,

enter image description here

  • Then create a new document library from this template.

  • Then move the documents from the old doc library that does not have views to the new one that already created by opening both documents libraries with explorer then copy and paste the documents from the source to the destination.

In case of the Open with explorer is disabled check We’re having a problem opening this location in File Explorer, Add this web site to your Trusted sites list and try again
