After some time the content of our Office 365 Tenant becomes a “Content Flea Market”. One of the challenges with a flea market is that it is difficult to get an overview of what is valuable and what is worthless.

What if we could have a function that cleans away old unimportant content and that also ensures that we keep current and important content as long as we need to keep it?

Surely You have a whole lot of various content stored in Your Office 365 Tenant. Probably some of this content should not be deleted and most likely You would benefit from deleting a whole lot of other content that does not qualify as useful, valid or current.

In Your Office 365 Environment (Exchange, OneDrive and SharePoint)

  • Do you have a requirement to retain content for a minimum period of time?
  • Do You want to permanently delete old content that you are no longer required to keep?
  • Do You want to ensure that your users only work with content that is valid, current and relevant to them?
  • Do You want to be able to select where the policy should be applied?

Here is an overview of retention policies in Office 365 works and how to do implement it!
