Configure expiration

Note: Visit www.microsoft.com for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information.

You can set expiration dates for items. You can also configure a schedule by which to automatically check for expired items and move them to the Recycle Bin.

  1. On the top navigation bar, click Operations.

  2. On the Operations page, in the Security Configuration section, click Information management policy configuration.

  3. On the Information Management Policy Configuration page, in the list of information management policy features, click Expiration.

  4. On the Configure Expiration page, in the Settings section, to enable scheduled processing of expired items, select the Automatically find and process expired items check box.

    Under Schedule this process to run, select either Daily or Weekly depending on how frequently you want to process expired items. You can also configure the time of day to process expired items. It is recommended that you specify times when server use is likely to be low so that any negative effects due to resource use are minimized.

  5. To process expired items immediately, click Process Expired Items Now.

  6. In the Availability section, select one of the following:

    • Available for use in new site and list policies. Select this option if you want the expiration feature to be available to new sites and list policies and on sites and list policies that are already configured to use the feature.

    • Decommissioned: Unavailable to new site and list policies, but still available in existing policies that use it. Select this option if you want the expiration feature to remain available to sites and list policies that are already configured to use the feature, but to be unavailable to add to new sites and list policies.

  7. Click Save.
