You can add the Expiration Configuration web part to any SharePoint page that supports web parts, but we recommend that it is installed on its own page. The Information Management Policy settings page can be accessed by going to the site content types gallery, selecting a content type, and clicking on the Information Management policy settings link.
You can configure content type or location based retentions.
Content type based retention lets you specify that all items of a particular content type will follow a retention schedule. To specify a retention stage go to the Information Management policy settings page, which can be accessed from the main settings page for a content type.
The expiration formula determines when an expiration action will occur.
Two types of formulates can be created: one based on a file size or one that uses the value in a column.
