Review expiration date per document-level

Brass Contributor

Hi all,


I have a question about an event-driven retention label in my Microsoft 365 test tenant.


I have created a retention label 'Employee records' configured to retain items for 10 years with 'Start of the retention period' configured as 'Employee activity (event type)', the default template.
Next, I deployed the retention label with a static retention label policy to a team site in SharePoint.

The label has succesfully been provisioned to the site.


When I apply the retention policy 'Employee records' to the document, I can fill in the Asset-id value in the dedicated column. As per my understanding, this would mean that all documents are initially permanently retained until the event occurs. Then, when I create the event from the 'Records management' overview, the 10 years retention period kicks in. Am I correct?


Now, I would like to check at document level what the 'expiration date' would be. This way I could verify and confirm if the retention policy works as expected. Is there such feature available within Microsoft 365?


Thanks for all help provided.
