Hi, i'm looking for ideas to solve a problem that is roadblocking our sharepoint 2010 records management implementation. We have set up our sharepoint 2010 records center to mimic our existing folder based records management system. We would
like to stamp each of our documents with a piece of meta data (called classification) which contains the path to the records center folder in which this document should reside. Our users are familiar with this structure and we can setup defaults for
a lot of documents so getting the value in the meta data is not a big issue.
The issue is that we would like to create a content organizer rule that would forward a document to a path defined in a meta data column to the matching column in the records center. I don't beleive this is possible OOTB but i would love to be proven
wrong. I don't want to manually have to create a rule for every folder / meta data value combination because there are thousdand of folders in the existing records center folder.
I'm open to developing a custom solution to this problem (or hiring someone to doe this), however not sure where to start... use the content oganizer object or a sharepoint timer job? Don't want to have to reinvent the wheel...
here is and example of what i mean by the metadata / folder pair
