Apply retention labels to group conversations in Outlook on the web

If you're the owner of a group in Outlook on the web, you can apply labels based on policies that control how long a group conversation will be retained. The labels you choose are created by the administrator for your organization.

Note: You'll only be able to label your conversations if your administrator has turned on this feature for your organization or school.

Here's an example of week, month, and year retention labels:
