Sharepoint List Archiving

25 01 2010

I  have been struggling with the idea of archiving in sharepoint for quite some time. I really haven’t found a clean solutions for it, so if anyone reading this can point me in the right direction, go for it.

This is how I envision list archiving:

1. list is created.

2. list is populated

3. after list hits a certain magic number of items it automatically moves the oldest items to an archive of some sort.

Short of a complex solution involving custom code with an event trigger, the only other solutions is this:

Save the list as a template. Move list to archive area.

What do you think?
