Configure barcodes

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

Barcodes can be embedded in Microsoft Office documents and used as search criteria in Windows SharePoint Services. You can therefore use barcodes to link hard copies of documents with corresponding soft copies.

  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 Barcodes.

  4. On the Configure Barcodes page, in the Settings section, in the Barcode style menu, select the style of barcode that you want to use.

  5. In the Availability section, under Status, select one of the following:

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

  6. In the Resources section, configure options that are specific to the selected barcode style.

  7. Click Save.
