  1. hi Andrew, this is really a great and informative set of three articles you have composed here, thanks for it eh,
    my question is regarding the implicit versus explicit dichotomy with respect to a retention label auto apply policy…I know the docs say explicit (manual or programmatic assignment of a retention label) always wins but I wanted to ask if I were to clear a list item’s retention label programmatically(using SetComplianceTag() to “”) or manually back to None do you think after 7 days the auto apply would kick in to assign it the new label? Or would you say by setting it to none that in and of itself is a manual/explicit assignment and thus the auto-apply would NOT kick in…what are your thoughts?

    1. Thanks for the feedback Evan, and sorry for the delay. I got a lot of spam responses in the last couple of month and just now starting to work through them all. I will reply in more detail soon.

    2. Hi Evan, looking at this just now, I found that a standard end-user could remove or change the retention period applied to a document in a library that had a label-based policy applied to it. They could also delete that policy. I will have to wait a while to see if those labels are automatically re-applied. I’ll re-check and let you know in a few days.
