SharePoint IRM option: Stop restricting access to the library at RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all!

    Exactly how does the SharePoint Online IRM-option "Stop restricting access to the library at <date>" work?

    My guess is that documents downloaded after the date specified will no longer be protected.

    My hope is that even documents downloaded before that date will cease to be protected after that date?

  • Nevermind, found the answer here:

    "After the specified date passes, SharePoint Foundation removes all rights-management restrictions from the documents in the library.
    Rights-managed documents that are downloaded before the specified stop date stay rights-managed in the client application, even after the specified date, because the document itself does not include this setting. After the user checks the document back in after the specified date, however, the document protection is removed."
