Enterprise Vault 10 - Can You add custom metadata fields to files to control when the file is archive/expires

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello,

We are just starting up with EV 10, Discovery Accelerator and our Legal dept is requesting if we can assign a custom field in a files metadata or otherwise to customize when the file is archive and/or when the file is expired?

Thanks,

I think what you want to do is set a custom attribute on a file and then have EV archive it and assign retention to the file based on the attribute.  Is that correct?

I think this is what you need:

Tony, I read the artical, but I don't see where I can add a tag on a file to tell it (ie. expire on June-12-2019)?

Any direction would be greatful.

thanks Tony.

So you wouldn't be able to specify a date but what you could do is assign it a 7 retention category.  Then when June 12 2019 rolls around it is eligible for expiry.
