I have a customized document library on a site but I have to move it to another site. How can I do this (and keep meta-datas, and form skeleton).

  • Seen this famous powershell blog: gallery.technet.microsoft.com/office/… although I'm not sure about your preferences about form skeleton. A lot of more comfort bring along some 3rd party tools like Sharegate
