Microsoft Records Management - is this for you?

Updated: Sep 6, 2020

Microsoft announced last week that records management with Microsoft 365 is now available with the following functionality:

  • Label content as a record. Create and publish retention labels that declare content as a record that can then be applied by end users or auto.-applied by identifying sensitive information, keywords, or content types.

  • Migrate and manage your retention plan with file plan and use file plan manager to bring in your existing retention plan, or build new with file descriptors and expanding hierarchies.

  • Establish retention and deletion policies within the record label. Define retention and disposition periods based on various factors including the date last modified or created.

  • Trigger event-based retention with event-based retention.

  • Review and validate disposition with disposition reviews and proof of records deletion.

  • Export information about all disposed items with the export option.

  • Set specific permissions for records manager functions in your organization to have the right access.
