Backing up a Workflow Task List
I get the reasons that you don't migrate a workflow task list; however, it would be very helpful to be able to create a copy of that list content.
We have many sites that use SharePoint workflows for critical business processes, and we need to be able to copy those lists to their newly migrated sites so they have the approval history. This is a show-stopper for some of our finance and BPI sites.
I unchecked workflows and most other items when trying to just create a backup of a critical list. We just need the content, nothing more. Is there a way to get around that functionality to just make copies of workflow tasks lists (since they auto-delete )?
This is a very helpful functionality to preserve the tasks list data for auditing purposes with incremental migration as well.
Hello ShareGate! Is this any closer to becoming a feature? We're in the throes of migration and have encountered a lot of angry customers because we have to supply download of the content when they need it to be 'live' in the task list, especially those under SarBox audit restrictions.
