Categories with Retention

Want to know how others handle their categories? I have 13 depts that want their own categories and retention set up, what is the general standard? Any suggestions of what to do or not to do? Examples: Contracts-11 years, Correspondence-5 years, Reports-5 years, Records-7 years, Projects-Perm, Misc/General-Indefinite.

Hey ya,

It sounds as if you will want to set up retention folders for those folks.  This process requires plenty of thought and I would HIGHLY recommend engaging with a Symantec consulting partner to help you plan this solution.

Best,
