SharePoint 2010 Drop Off Library !!!!

Another new feature you may have seen in SharePoint 2010 is the drop folder this is basically a way to set up one folder for users to upload files to and it will automatically route the files to the appropriate locations that you have previously setup.

So how do we get this to work? Well it does need some setting up and the routing rules do need some configuring but well worth the effort. First of all from your site go to

Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Manage Site Features and activate the “Content Organizer” feature. After this is activated there are two new items under the site administration section these are “Content Organizer Settings” and “Content Organizer Rules”
