One of thei things that users of Enterprise Vault sometimes struggle with is figuring out what was archived recently.  My idea would be to automatically (or by policy) create search folders for users showing items archived in the last 7 days, 14 days, month.  Etc.
 
End users would then be able to see these inside Outlook and Outlook Web Access

Can you elaborate on why users want to find items that have been recently archived? For what purpose and what do they then do with this information?

I've started using this for end users who are convinced that Enterprise Vault isn't archiving their items.
So typically if you go through AE, you can't tell whats recently archived, you *could* use Search.asp?advanced and order from newest archived etc

But really its awesome to set up a search folder, put it on modified in 1 day and has the EnterpriseVault.Shortcut message class and show the users exactly what has been archived (or at least turned in to shortcuts etc)

Its especially useful for users with very very organized mailboxes that have hundreds of folders and can't go through each folder etc

It's good for help desk to show its archiving, its good for end users to see whats recently archived

Having this feature would also help users on the Mac.   Do you have a solution for Mac Outlook 2011?
