Export documents or folders to Team Folders or Secured Folders

You can export documents or folders from one Team Folder library or Secured Folder library to another. 

Note: To export between libraries, you must have library administrator permissions on the source and target libraries.

To export documents or folders:

1. In a view, select the document or folder you want to export.

2. Open the More actions menu and select Export


3. Select Transfer to another library.

4. Select the target library from the drop-down menu.

5. Press Export.

When you press Export, AODocs:

  • creates an export folder named Export - [current date and time]
  • moves the selected documents or folders into the export folder
  • moves the export folder into the target library
  • notifies the administrator of the source library that the document has been exported

- Document properties are exported only if the configuration of the target library corresponds to that of the source library.
- Workflow states of exported documents are not exported.
- Sharing permissions of exported documents and folders are not exported.

  • I've found that sometime files are missed by the export.
    Are there any limits for the size of folder that can be transferred?

  • Hello John,
    No there shouldn't be any limitation as for the export capability. If you are facing missing files or folders, please open a ticket to our support team with the Export job ID that you can find under Library Administration > Jobs.
    Our support team will be able to help you with that.
    Thanks in advance.

  • I suggest you give the option of "not creating an export folder" and just export the file where we target. This way it is easier to organize files afterwards. Also, an option to "move
    " multiple documents within the same library would be great.
