Announcing: Administering Records Management in Office SharePoint Server 2007

Hi, my name is Claudia Lake. I am a technical writer on the SharePoint IT Pro documentation team. In response to feedback from users, we have created Administering Records Management, which is a new set of IT Pro documentation on TechNet about records management in Office SharePoint Server 2007.  We have also created a Records Management resource center on TechNet.

What’s covered?

Our intention is to provide you with all of the information you need to successfully set up, configure, and administer a Records Center site in Office SharePoint Server 2007.

In addition to providing information about how to create a Records Center site, the new records management administration documentation covers the following areas:

  • Configuring an active document site for records management
  • Configuring an Exchange Server 2007 e-mail server to send records to a Records Center site
  • Managing holds
  • Monitoring the Records Center site

The Records Management resource center provides additional resources for you to plan and implement a Records Management solution using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

Feedback welcome!

    Without spending weeks to enter all of the General Records Schedules from the National Archives and Records Administration, I was wondering if anyone might already have this and the dispositions in SharePoint lists that he or she could export to spreadsheets.  I would love to be able to do a direct import of the GRS into my MOSS Records Center.
