Information Management Policy Settings link not display

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I am trying to enable Information Management in Sharepoint  server 2010 but when i go to the Library or List Settings page there is no link to Information Management Policy Settings on the page.

I've been searching for an hour and can find no information to tell me how to enable this option.  Any hints would be appreciated.

Information Management Policy - Expiration not working

I've defined a new policy for my list.
The policy has expiration enabled.
The expiration date is WarningDate (required list field - date and time) + 0 days and the expiration should trigger the custom workflow, which would send the warning, but is now only setting the status to Warned.
The workflow works fine when executed manually, but never seems to be actually executed by the item expiration.

I've also updated the "information management policy" job to run every 5 minutes, but it didn't help.
What as I missing?

Information Management Policy & Disposition Workflow


I would like to set an information management policy that enbles expiration of documents in my document library. I then want this to kick off a disposition workflow that will then allow the owner of the content (i.e. the last person to modify the document, or creator if it has not been modified) to either delete the document or do nothing. This is all simple to do. My question is: When the disposition workflow kicks off, does it send an email to the document owner or does it simply ceate a task in the specified task list?


If it only creates a task, is it possible to notify the document owner that a task has been created? I don't want docment owners to have to have to keep checking the task list, I want an email sent to them whenever a document is about to expire. Is this possible?

Information Management Policy & Exempt from Policy flag


Hi all,


does anyone know why the "Information Management Policy" in MOSS sets a 'yes' flag (in the 'exempt from policy' column) on the document library automatically when the specific document expires? 


And more importantly is there a way of getting around this?


What I am trying to achieve is a periodic document review schedule without having to create custom workflows in Visual Studio, and preferably sticking with the out of the box approval workflow to ease the rollout of team sites from a site template.


I thought this could be accomplished by using the Information Management Policy on the DL, but I guess not if after the first review date arrives the document is then exempt from any following dates.





Information Management Policy to clean up the Workflow History List?


I have several InfoPath 2007 forms (with workflows) that are heavily used in my MOSS 2007 environment, and the some of the Workflow History lists are very large need to be cleaned up.  I'm trying to use an (Expiration) Information Management Policy to delete items in the Workflow History list that are Last Modified + X days , but haven't had much success.  Has anyone else had success doing this?


Defining information management policy on a library not working


I've created a WF in SPD that generates a task to copy an expired item to a Records Center. The WF works properly.  I then defined an IMP on the library to fire off the WF when the expiration date is reached. But nothing happens. The IMP never fires the WF. Any ideas?

Information Management Policy not triggering SPD workflow


Hi All,

I have a document library with no special fields (i.e. Lookups) and I have created a workflow via SPD to create a task to review the document and send to a Records Center, if necessary. The WF is working properly.

I then set an Information Management Policy on the library through the SharePoint UI following these steps:

1. Define a policy...
2. Policy Statement: This document expires in 1 day (testing)
3. Checked "Enable Expiration ":
       The retention period is: Modified + 1 + days
       When the item expires:
       Start this workflow: IMP WF Test 2

But the IMP never triggers the workflow.

  • I have checked the "Information Management Policy Configuration" via Central Administration, and "Expiration" is available and set to run daily.
  • I have tried the "Process Expired Items Now" manual option via the CA "Configure Expiration" page.
  • I have tried this with "Require Check Out" enabled and disabled with no success in either case.
  • I have tried this with Publishing features enabled and disabled with no success.
  • I have combed this forum thoroughly looking for similar situations and possible resolutions w

Form input to output as a link on the display page (need help please)

 I have a form, the form works great and displays the information perfectly on a designated display page I have set up from its database.  One problem, I want to display it as a link to the site instead of how it is now, just plain text. Thus the user would put in the text box the site and hit submit and the site would appear of the display page.  Can anyone please assist me on this, and where to drop the hyperlink control? in the form page? or in the display page?    Below is my form code page:     <p><strong><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">International Access Entry      Form</font></strong></p><p><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Please enter information      international contact information below. This if for authorized staff only.</font></p><table width="548" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="10" bgcolor="f0f0f0">  <tr>    <td width="528"><form name="INTL_Form" method="post" action="INTL-results.asp">      <p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> </f

Information Policy options missing?

I've set up a Content Type Hub to allow me to publish content types to all site collections. However, doing this appears to have removed the Information Management Policy Settings link on the settings page for the content type. Does this mean that you can't set IM policy on Published Content Types?  

using policy based management to exclude database access

After reading information on the link http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1492 I was wondering whether its possible to have a policy in place such that database A cannot make reference to objects in database_B, I am guessing that one would have a policy such that the contents of the objects must not be like %database_B.%   Let me know whether there is a better way to do this. Thanks.

Problem setting up approve/reject settings in Absence Request and Vacation Management Template

Hi I have recently installed and set up the absence request and vacation management template in SharePoint Services 3.0 and all seems to be going reasonably well apart from one hitch. I have edited the setup workflow so that manager is sent an email on request, employee is sent an email on approval/rejection and payroll are sent an email on approval for their records. However, even though the Personal Vacation option in the Absence Type list is set to Yes for Approval Required, the workflow is automatically sending out the email to say their annual leave has been approved as soon as they request it. Has anyone come across this before or know where I may be going wrong? Thanks for any help you can give. Jo

In data view web part - how to display document name with link that opens lookup document rather tha

I have a list with a lookup column to create relationships with documents in a separate library. I am creating a data view web part to display each item in the list. One of the fields I want to display is the document field (the lookup column). I want this to be in the form of the related document's name with link to directly open the source document itself (Word, PPT, ...). Now I am only managing to display the document name linked to opening the document's display form of the related document library, and then I have to click the document's name there to open it. Alas one unnecessary click too many. Any wize tips? Henning

Form opening in infopath client despite Content Type settings "Display as a Web Page"

Hi all,   I have a strange behavior with my forms. The infopath template is defined as Content Type for my Form library, in the advanced settings I have checked "Display as a Web page" for the "Opening browser-enabled documents" setting. Despite that when the client is availble on the computer which is browsing the Form Library, I'm asked to "Open", "Save" or "Cancel" instead of opening the form in the browser.   Any idea why this is happening ?
