In SharePoint 2013, a list can have up to 30 MILLION items. This is the hard-coded limit where it simply won't let you create even a single other item. However, there are other limits to consider: List view threshold: 5,000 items List view threshold for admins: 20,000 items Individual file size limit: 2 GB Total site limit for content database: 4 TB A ...

What does "moved the 5,000 list view limit" mean? The Software boundaries and limits for SharePoint 2013 shows that the limit for items in a list/library is 30M. (As far back as SP2007 it was 5M). So there is no concern for 36K items. However, retrieving more that 5K items in a single operation (a view) will cause performance degradation. That is why the ...

You can create a library on root site which contains all the Policy documents. Than after you need to create a webpart to show policies to users like below. On the acceptance of any document, You need to insert the same document name with accepted (Current Login) user & current date time to any list. Once the user clicks on it, You must have to disable ...

You can try the below powershell: $mSite = Get-SPweb "http://sharepointed.com/site/taco" $aList = $mSite.lists["A"] $bList = $mSite.lists["B"] $arrA = @() $arrB = @() foreach($iA in $aList.Items) { $arrA += $iA["Title"] } foreach($iB in $bList.Items) { $arrB += $iB["Title"] } $c = Compare-Object -ReferenceObject $arrA -DifferenceObject $arrB -PassThru ...

You can use PowerShell script to iterate the library items and compare You can export both libraries into Excel, then merge the two files, the sort it to find duplicates.

Long story short (maybe too short): Document Center is for 'living' documents (imagine 'write' permission, often updated) Records Center is for 'coma' documents (imagine 'read only' permission, not updated) BTW there's a nice comparison called "Document Center vs. Records Center", including quite thorough performance comparison, highly recommended.

When you click on the column name in list settings it will not tell you whether it's a site column. If you enable content management on a library, go into the content type, and click on a column name, it will tell you if the column is inherited from a site column because you won't be able to edit it, and it will provide a link to edit the site column.

With the new version of CSOM released for office 365, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.RecordsRepository.Records namespace can help to declare/undeclare item as record. More details about the latest CSOM version can be found here.

You can force it using PowerShell CSOM: $list = $ctx.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Some Library") $list.AllowDeletion = $true $list.Update() $list.DeleteObject() $ctx.Load($list) $ctx.ExecuteQuery()

I don't think you can. A survey is a special type of list, and a document library is another special type of list, as is most everything in SharePoint. (A calendar is a list, a tasks list is a list, etc.) Everything that you see when you go to Site Contents is essentially a list. You can't store an entire list inside another list.

I have an answer to my own question on the mysterious issue of document duplicates being created in our Record Centres. In a nutshell, the documents which appeared to come out of thin air were coming from another SharePoint environment. The other evironment had been a long forgotten restore of our Production system made 5 years earlier. The restored ...

For your requirement, you can use Information Management Policy to do that. Go to your library->library settings Information Management Policy settings->Document Click "Enable Retention"->"Add a retention stage" Then set the event like the below: A blog for your reference: How to set up retention and deletion policies for files and folders in SharePoint

Both of them can be deployed in this case , but before that ,you should compare and consider which scenario is suit for you . Multiple Document Center : Advantages : Let each department manage and store their own files and policies , much safety . Disadvantage :It very hard to manage for an Administrator . Single Document Center : Advantage : Only 1 site to ...

this will depend on the amount of data and members of your organization, but as a best practice you'll want to create at least a site or site collection for each department and possible a subsite for each team on each department.

Try this ,check any checkout file take the ownership and delete the document library Go to the 'Document Library Settings' page of the respective 'Pages' library. Under the 'Permissions and Management' group, there is a link named 'Manage files which have no checked in version' (in SPS 2013).

It appears that I found the answer to this. I noticed that the second stage referred to the same previous version of the workflow in the first stage. I changed the second stage to reflect the updated version found in the subsequent stages and all works as designed. The possible root causes would be: Retention policies cannot use previous versions of ...

I am not sure in which event you trying to perform a recovery.There are couple of ways you can do this. If a document is updated with the latest version, you can go back and restore the previous version if document is deleted then check the RecycleBin for recovery. if document is completely gone from site then you need the backup of the content database or ...

Would the customer be willing to use 'In Place Records Management' instead? This post is helpful in giving some description as to what In Place Records Management would entail. It sounds as though the requirement is for a single document library - in which case you can configure this in Document Library Settings/Information management policy settings/...

We had the exact requirement in a project where we had to upload 50k documents with metadata. There is no existing solution to handle this. We had written a Windows forms application which handled upload of CSV file containing the records and did the upload batch by batch (typically 1000 docs at a time) using CSOM as we didn't have access to the server at ...

In SharePoint 2013 you have 30,000,000 per list. But I recomend you to read List and Library Items section from Software boundaries and limits for SharePoint 2013. Specially List view threshold and Security scope.

You could also use PowerShell to read in from the file system and create folders with matching names to put folders into. Check out SPFileUpload Project on Codeplex. For content manager you need to create the rules for it to work. You can script out the rules via PowerShell - the below snipped was taken from this posted article (which contains more detail ...

Using the policy features you have the ability to start a workflow. With a workfow you can rename the file using the metadata of the document. Moving the document to a filesystem could be done by creating a custom workflow action and then use this action in the workflow. The workflow can be created with SharePoint designer. The custom action will need ...

looking on msdn the flow is as follows: Sends the file to a records repository. This method submits a file for archiving in a Records Center. If a Records Center Web service is configured for the current Web application, users can right-click a document in a library and choose Send to Records center from the edit control block menu. You can ...

I know this is an old thread, but I have to share with you guys. Maybe someone will benefit from my story. If you think about it, Retention Policy is an if-statement. So what I did was: set the retention policy to recur every day after the review date. However, inside the workflow, write an if-statement: If "today" is equal to the "expiry date". If that ...

The only approach I could come up with was to copy the list item, then delete the original as part of my workflow that gets kicked off by Policy. Because it then becomes a new item that hasn't had the policy run on it, it will fire again. I don't need to keep any history although I suspect it may even copy that, but I haven't checked. I also have the ...

You seem to have a good handle on a sensible way to organise your departments and locations but personally I wouldn't break inheritance on folders, instead I'd manage access at the Web Level simply because Webs are intended to have some independence for administration and effectively securing content seems to be the most pressing problem here. Don't be ...

here you can check feature comparison. http://www.fpweb.net/sharepoint-2013/compare-sharepoint-server-standard-enterprise/ Rm is the standard features but if you want to use E-discover, ACM, Compliance then you need the enterprise Cal for each user. check these slides will help you http://www.slideshare.net/d501159/sharepoint-2013-licensing-overview-from-...

After decompiling SharePoint DLL's (ILSpy ftw!) and checking the ascx templates, I found the issue. It's a UI bug in SharePoint! What happens is: During activation of the Records feature receiver, a different rendering template is set on all content types in the Drop off library. If you add rules later, they will get the default template! This custom ...

I just found that in while creating the datasheet view, we need to select 'Show all items without folders' instead of 'show items inside folder'. 'Show items inside folder' works only if it is a Standard View. Thanks all for your time.

A retention policy may do the trick: Library Settings => Information Management Policy settings => Choose Content Type => Enable Retention => Add a Retention stage => Set up your rules http://www.future-processing.pl/blog/retention-policy-in-sharepoint-2013/
