Configuration

Required
To configure your disposal settings you need to be assigned either the Application Administrator or Record Manager role in Records365.
This section only applies when the aggregation level disposal feature has been enabled for your tenant. For more information on this feature please refer to the Aggregation Based section in the documentation.

Introduction

We recognize that the content of your organization is specific to you, and so it is important that the metadata of your content can be leveraged throughout the disposal management process.

The disposal experience can be tailored to your organization, making it easy for your record managers to make the right decisions. The disposal area in Records365 displays those records or record folders that have reached the end of their retention period. These views empower record managers to quickly identify and triage records through their disposal lifecycle. Context is critical when making decisions about whether to dispose larger volumes of records. Therefore, we provide you with the ability to customize the metadata is displayed so you can quickly and easily search and filter through records that are eligible for disposal.
