Keep original document metadata?

May 17, 2013 at 1:23 PM
I was curious if it would be possible to keep or transfer the original author and other metadata to the new document that gets created? For example if I am archiving a bunch of legal policy documents and changing them from Word, to pdf, it would be helpful to keep the original author there in case of ediscovery requests.

I'll take a look at what may be possible. It should be possible to keep the original user who created the document, but it may not be possible to keep other data (date/time created, for instance) as Word Automation Services accepts very little in the way of document-centric parameters.
