How do I move a lot of files in one step from one folder or site to another?


First, the user must hold a manager role in the site where the target files exists and have access to the folder or site that will receive the files for the move.

  1. Click on the folder that contains the items you want to move so you can see the folder view in the preview pane.
  2. Check all the boxes or only the ones you need from the checkboxes on the left side of the preview pane.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the screen until you see the small text starting "Selected: All | None | With Selected: [drop menu]." Using the drop menu next to "With Selected" choose the "move" option.
  4. The CMS will ask you for the new parent folder location. Choose the site if applicable, and then the folder location. Click "Confirm" to continue. 
  5. Click Submit to complete the move process.
