News from Microsoft you can use:

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced the ability to move files anywhere in Office 365, SharePoint and OneDrive, while maintaining quality, metadata and version management. The following information was curated from the announcement by Chris McNulty of Microsoft:

Last year, we released enhancements that allow you to copy files in Office 365. Today, we’re adding the ability to move files in Office 365 with full fidelity protections for metadata and version management. This enables important scenarios for managing information architecture in Office 365.

Move files from any folder in Office 365
To move a file in OneDrive or SharePoint, select the file and the command bar exposes the Move to command.

You can then select the destination for the file. The list of destinations is powered by Microsoft Graph, to show you the destinations that are most relevant to you, or you can browse to find the exact location in your OneDrive or SharePoint sites.


Click Move Here, then the file will be moved for you, preserving all metadata and version history.


Common scenarios
The capability to move files while preserving metadata and version history enables many common content management scenarios including:

Migration: Many organizations have moved files from legacy, on-premises or third-party repositories to Office 365. However, even the most thoughtful migration projects can leave some files in the “wrong” location. Now, if you discover a file in the marketing site that belongs with sales files, for example, you can move that document without manual processes that can truncate metadata.

Sharing: When you have completed a draft of a file in your personal files, and are ready to share it with your team, you can move the file to your team site, preserving version history, which could be lost with other methods of moving the file into a shared location.

Publishing: You might a have a document in your team site, such as a policy, that is ready to be published to a broad audience. You can move the file to a communication site that reaches a broader audience across the organization.

Modernizing your information architecture: Need to set up a new team site and want to bring along related docs from previous projects? You can select folders from an older team site and move them to a newer one. Or maybe you have content on a site that really belongs in a different template – for example, a classic team site that would be better off as a modern group? You can now set up a group and then use Move to put the content where users can get the most benefit.

Multigeo: You may have legacy content you will want to Move to new sites in your new geographies (note there’s a separate feature that will Move an entire site).
