Workflows The last option I'd go with is the workflow: workflows are slow, buggy, do not work at all when there's a lot of them running, complicated to debug, and most of all they completely disturb the users since they're visible in the UI (with a messy UI). Why would a background task be visible in the UI? In addition, conceptually, your task is not a ...

(A code-only option, as an extra, not necessarily a suggested answer but one for others who will in future come across this question) I'm surprised nobody's brought up the pretty awesome Patterns and Practices Remote Timer Job Framework https://github.com/OfficeDev/PnP/tree/master/Solutions/Core.TimerJobs.Samples Basically it's a .NET library that lets ...

To be honest, based on the requirements: Check if a column named "Review Date" of an item is met (Review date = today), and if so, to change the item status to be "In Progress". Then to send an email to the "Assigned To" user , that there is an item assigned to him with “Review Date” that have been met. I would go for a Workflow. Why? Well, ...

I would probably do it with a new document library where the files can be moved to. Permissions would be add only (a custom one to create) and set the library properties to exclude it from search. Then you could create a workflow upon marking the document as "complete" it moves it to the library and then deletes the current file.

Item expiration is handled by two timer jobs in the farm, Information management policy and Expiration policy. The first job runs through and marks all expired items ready for expiration, and the other job comes through and cleans them up. In a default SharePoint installation (on prem), these are run weekly. These can be adjusted to run daily to handle ...

I found it, they go to the drop off folder.

When user asked us about the quota increase, here what i do If versionning enabled then limit it( i forced them for max 4 version) delete the unused data(documents, sites etc) Empty the recycle-bin. if they are using SharePoint as storage place you may force them to different tools(if you company has) Ask them why ...

I've resolved this. Per Microsoft: Note: Information management policies are compiled by an Information Management Policy Timer Job, managed by Microsoft, which runs weekly. Therefore, your policies may not take effect immediately. The frequency and date of the Information Management Policy Timer Job cannot be changed. The reference came from ...

The “allow Group Protection” allow members of an AD group to share the document with each other. To restricted external users but internal users to use the documents in the document library, I recommend you to disable external sharing in Office 365 and SharePoint site. More information check the article: External Users with SharePoint Online in Office 365

If you look in the ULS logs for SharePoint and spot an error along the lines of below - Type System.CodeDom.CodeBinaryOperatorExpression is not marked as authorized in the application configuration file. Then you're likely missing some required Assembly Authorizations in web.config which is a known issue with the latest updates. There's plenty of info ...

I've investigated the other Answer by gachCoder, but my workflow is a 2010 one. But I had a similar kind of workflow error again. I found the Answer by Hardik in this post solved my issue. 24/09/2018 Update to Answer: you might also like to read this Answer relating to whether or not it is safe to deactivate and reactivate a workflow Site Feature (it ...

I can only speak of my experience on SP 2013, without using code, but maybe it is relevant. On the site collection level go to settings/Site Collection Admin/Content Type Policy Templates/select 'Enable Retention'/'add a retention stage'. If you configure the policy based on content types it would give you the flexibility to only apply the retention policy ...

This link shows how to get a document library level File Plan Report. I could not find anything that applies to an entire SP Site Collection though.

Would the customer be willing to use 'In Place Records Management' instead? This post is helpful in giving some description as to what In Place Records Management would entail. It sounds as though the requirement is for a single document library - in which case you can configure this in Document Library Settings/Information management policy settings/...
