Retention policies - Extend deletion date

I have been looking at the (very helpful) notes on Retention policies here:
It states that one of the options available 'After policy ends:' is 'Allow Folder owners and Co-owners to extend deletion date'.

Is anyone able to anyone tell me how that works? How does the owner/co-owner know that they can extend it and how long can they extend it for? What happens after the extended period ends?

Hi @EMD1

 

I'm no expert in this area.  From what I recall in training there isn't a button saying (hey you can extend this!) it is basically either the ability to do it, or not.  You have to click it to see if you can extend it.

 

I believe the extension time is not limited, or if it is limited it is limited to the original hold time.  I'd recommend setting up a test folder with a deletion period of 1 day and see what happens.

 

I hope this helps

As always,

 

You can call box support and request further information from a subject matter expert.  The service desk guys are really good at finding that type of information for you!

Thanks Rob,

Yes that is probably the easiest way to find out. I don't currently have access to a test environment, but have now requested as it will enable me to explore further..

Kind regards,
