Document retention is an important part of content management. SharePoint provides out-of-the-box support for managing document retention using the built-in expiration policy feature of the information management policy framework. The built-in expiration policy feature includes the ability to define expiration formulas based on document metadata, but there are many scenarios in which the expiration date depends on conditions external to a given document. In this session, we’ll explore the information management policy architecture in detail and learn how to extend the expiration policy feature by writing custom document expiration formulas that calculate the expiration date based on data pulled from elsewhere in the SharePoint farm.
A little background on SharePoint Nation!
User groups are a great way for getting out to meet peers, share information on past experiences related to a particular topic and to learn from subject matter experts on new concepts or best practices. Many of us already are members of local user groups related to SharePoint, .NET and other topics. However in some cases, it may be difficult to get out to meetings due to work commitments or even worse, impossible to coordinate a group due to regional limitations. Enter SharePoint Nation…a virtual user group.
SharePoint Nation will operate as any other user group…except without the free Pizza.
We will meet, share information and network with one another. Meetings will feature presentations from a variety of subject matter experts on a vast array of topics. To accommodate people from all over the globe, a variety of time slots will be followed for meetings and all content will be made available online for on demand participation. The website will be used for sharing information with one another between meetings.
How can you get involved…
Aside from presenting at meetings, we are looking for people to help host the meetings. As a host you will take on responsibility for notifying attendees of meeting locations, introducing the speaker for the evening and collecting evaluations at the conclusion of the meeting. Training will be provided on using Live Meeting and the various other tools associated with hosting and presenting at meetings.
