My scenario: I need to be able to bulk move files from one library to another and also bulk add metadata to those newly move files.

I thinking of creating an spfx/react application or any method is welcome

    How many files you're expecting to move? Are libraries at the same site collection or not? – Sergei Sergeev Nov 20 '18 at 17:34
  • There is no definte number of files,it varies. Users need an app so that they can move files with metadata between libraries in the same site collection – Keshav Taurah Nov 20 '18 at 18:43
  • You're basically asking about making a browser-based migration utility. You're going to have scaling issues. This is why Sergei asked about how many documents. – Derek Gusoff Nov 20 '18 at 19:25
  • Also, are you expecting version history and item level security to also come along for the ride? – Derek Gusoff Nov 20 '18 at 19:26
  • The scenario here is users will be just moving files from one project folder to another in a second list. so it depend from 5-25 files for one transfer. version history is great if we cacn keep it but not mandatory. NO for item level security – Keshav Taurah Nov 21 '18 at 4:48
