MetaVis Migrator allows you to preserve these core authorship properties during any tagging and/or copy/move operation without any additional software or agents.

Note:  The user executing the migration must be a site owner in the target environment in order to retain created/modified properties.

For lists with Content Approval enabled, an option is provided to either retain the created/modified properties or the content approval status.

Note:  By installing the MetaVis web service, you can preserve both created/modified properties AS WELL AS content approval status. The default behavior is to have either one or the other. This is the only behavior in Office 365 or hosted environments where the web service can't be installed.

There are several scenarios where created/modified properties may not be preserved.  Here is a listing of these scenarios.(refer to the FAQ section on our website for additional information).

·Some created/modified by accounts are not preserved, while created/modified information is retained - this indicates that the users do not exist or are disabled in the target environment's Active Directory.  A listing of these users can be generated using the Orphaned Users report (Security Manager).  You may remap these users to other account using the User Mapping feature.

·Created/Modified properties are not preserved for minor versions of items in a versioned list - this is due to a limitation in SharePoint APIs.  Where possible, users may choose to install the MetaVis web service to resolve this issue.

·Created/Modified properties are not preserved when migrating to certain service pack version of SharePoint 2007 -  - this is due to a limitation in SharePoint APIs.  Where possible, users may choose to install the MetaVis web service to resolve this issue.
