Refiling works for me.  I have

  (setq org-refile-targets '(("gtd.org" :regexp . "Task")
                             ("someday.org" :level . 1)
                             ("projects.org" :regexp . "Tasks")
                             (nil :tag . "refile")
                             (org-agenda-files :regexp . "Tasks")
                             (org-agenda-files :regexp . "Appointments")
                             (nil :maxlevel . 3)))

I use IDO, but at some point tried out ivy.  I seem to remember having
some issues with it (I still have commented out ivy stuff in my
init.org).  Unfortunately I can't remember whether the problems were
related to refiling :-/
