Configuring advanced routing (Content Organizer)

SharePoint 2010 contains the capability to route documents to folders and libraries. SharePoint can even route documents between site collections, as long as the Content Organizer is configured in source and destination. The Content Organizer is the function that manages these documents.

Folders within libraries are part of this feature, which gives added flexibility to users who are comfortable with this type of organization. Routing is very useful when managing limits within document libraries, routing items such as proposals and RFPs, and using managed metadata to determine where documents should reside.
