Hi,

I have a retention policy created on the Office 365 data governance applied to a team site. 

This team site has some libraries that are using customized content types and I would like to apply the retention policy to the documents created from these custom content type.

 

Is that possible?

 

Best regards

Americo

@Americo Perez , I am looking for this too!

 

I would like to apply retention to a particular content type, that asks the creator to review the document after (x) number of days. I think LABELS and a custom retention policy is the way forward have you looked at https://protection.office.com/retention
