How to Configure Send to Connections in SharePoint 2010

Document management is an important function in SharePoint, because many document libraries need to be created in different sites to store all kinds of documents. Due to some reasons, you may have to regularly copy some documents from different libraries to another same library. Fortunately, SharePoint provides Send to Connections to send connection to external document repositories.

Now, I will show you how to configure the Send to Connections in SharePoint 2010.

Step1. Go to Central Administration>General Application Settings>External Service Connections

Click Configure send to connections to open the configuration page. Select the web application for which you want to enable the service. Here, for example, select the 80 port. Then, add one connection and the two connections can be created. The URL and a display name for the target destination are required. Note that the display name should be a valid unique name. The format of Send To URL, however, has certain requirements. The following steps will show you how to get the correct URL.

Step2. Go to Site Action > Site Settings > Manage site features.

Activate Content Organizer.
