Tru Copy and Paste FAQ

What is Tru Copy / Paste?

Tru Copy/Paste is a SharePoint App that works with SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online (Office 365). You can install it from the SharePoint App store. It allows users to copy files from a source location and paste them into a destination location much like traditional copy and paste features in Windows and other OS's. This feature was never available in SharePoint and it required users to open a library in Explorer View in order to move files around.

 

Do I need Office 365 to use it?

You can use it with SharePoint Online but it also works with On premise SharePoint 2013 deployments as well. It will not work with SharePoint 2010.

 

How do I set it up?

Go to the Getting Started for instructions on how to set it up.

 

Are there any limitations?

The app has a free tier of use per month of 30 file copies per month. You may upgrade that limit of copies and pastes you will need to upgrade to a paid plan. Team plan will provide you with a 2,500 copies /month limit and Business Plan with a 10,000 / month limit. If you need to go beyond that its at increments of 10,000 @ $600/years.

 

The app is also designed for end users to copy files around. Some may use the tool for migrations or moving large and many files to different locations. For copying large amount of files 1000 we recommend you use Tru Migrate (a feature of Tru Copy currently in beta).
