Expiration policy does not process pages second time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a need for a simple review workflow where users decide if they want to keep a document.

    I have a Information management policy setup on a mandatory date column named ReviewDate. The stage starts a workflow which updates the date or removes the item. This works fine the first time. However, when the new review date comes up, it does not seem to process the document again.

    I have the expiration policy timer job set to run daily.

    Please help fix this.

  • Hi Pradeep,

    Please try the following

    1) Add the logic in your custom workflow to check the review date in OnWorkflowActivated event

    2) Add if else activitiy after OnWorkflowActivated event to start the review based on review date.

    3) Update the information policy retention stage by selecting the reccurence check box to repeat this stage until the next stage is activated.

    With this approach, the workflow will be started/executed repeatedly based on the specified review date.

    Best Regards
