On the Assign Policy menu, add an option to Create a Rule to Assign Policy
On the Assign Policy menu shown when right-clicking an email message or using the drop-down menu from the Ribbon, add an option to Create a Rule (to assign Retention Policy / Personal Tag). This will allow users to easily automate the task, without havimng to access the Rules option, which generally takes a little longer to access and open.
Rules would be much more useful to me and my day-to-day e-mail management if common time-related "if/then" conditions could be applied.
Many rules only apply in specific situations, such as:
- If I am very busy, my newsletters, advertising circulars, and recurring e-mails pile up, but if I have time to read them, I like to. --> IF I have not read them in a certain period of time, THEN run the rule that cleans them up.
- Several e-mails I get have "today only" sales or offers or "this week's sales/offers." If I can't get to them, I'd rather I could set them to expire. --> IF 7 days from e-mail, THEN run the rule that deletes them
- I often only need certain rules to help me manage the e-mail that piles up when I'm out of the office over a weekend or on vacation. It is so tedious to apply those rules every single time I leave, so I don't. --> IF I have an out of office on, THEN run this rule /or/ IF it is the weekend, THEN run this rule
