SharePoint workflow: Copy list item with attachments across site collections

In this short post, I want to describe Copy List Item workflow action.

We are trying to simplify common actions that our users will be happy to work with SharePoint.

So as an example of this philosophy, please have a look at the sample of usage: 

 

On the example, above you see the basic of usage the action, but you can open properties window of the action to see advanced options. To open the properties window please right click on the workflow action and select properties.

 

Please pay attention that the action allows you to copy the item cross-site as well, also it can copy attachments, for this, you need to turn on Copy Attachments option. Also, you can save the ID of created list item, the option can be useful if you want to send a link to the list item by email or maybe save it anywhere, for this you can use List Item ID variable. 

 

 

Thank you for your time, please feel free to comment the post.
