Hi All, 

 

I have recently created a new communications site and moved a lot of documents from another site and they are now displaying with my name, can this be removed, if so how? Thanks in advance

How you have moved the documents from another site? Did you used any migration tool?

@ganeshsanap They were moved from another SharePoint site. I have found the resolution - go to the document library, click on the 3 ellipses, scroll down to columns and click modified by, use drop down list and change field to created. Thanks anyway!

Can you please explain the steps you followed in detail?

 

I am not able to find this: "scroll down to columns and click modified by, use drop down list and change field to created".

 

Thanks.
