Hello Microsoft Community,

I have a "situation". We have a SharePoint 2013 Farm in production network and also a SharePoint 2016 Farm on development network.
Recently, a costumer told us that they created some content (site) on development network (SP2016) and they want the site to be exported to production network (SP2013).

My question is: Is it possible this thing? Is it a SP2016 site compatible with SP2013?
If yes, how this can be accomplished?

Thank you very much for your answer and commitment.

CB.

    Hi @Catalin Bunea ,
    According to my research, there is currently no OOTB solution to your issue.

    If you want to move sites from SharePoint 2016 to SharePoint 2013, we suggest you use a third party tool to do that.

    Thanks,
    Yanli Jiang

    Hello everyone,

    No updates, task is pending, we need to decide together with costumer if we will take this risk.

    Thank you for your answer.
