One of the key steps in creating an effective Records Retention is to perform a 'Records Audit'. This will capture the actions performed on the retention records, so that the 'Records Manager' can monitor and respond effectively to requests in accordance with the organization or legal regulations.
A records audit establishes the following information;
•How and where the record is stored
•Who created it and when
•What action has been performed on the record
You can select from several categories of events to audit from the Audit Settings tab in Properties dialog box. For more information,
see 'Setting Audit Trail' in the Client Manual.
