I've got quite a complex document library, with some folders that have strict access for certain users. I've created a content type and will add templates to the content type.

If i clicke my way down to a certain folder in my SharePoint library then choose to create a new document from a template, and then save it, is doesn't end up in the folder i had selected, it's saved on the top folder, not in the folder I was in when I opened a new document.

How do I get my documents to end up in the chosen folder in my library, without having to choose the correct one when i'm saving my document?

Maybe Content Organizer could be useful in this case ?


If not then I suppose you will need a custom Remote Event Receiver:


  • Thanks, didn't know about Content organizer and rules, will do some research into that and try it out. Thanks!
