Hi!

I'm using Exchange retention policies very often using Outlook 2016 assigning needed policy to incoming or outgoing messages. To assing retention policy to a message I have to press Assign Policy button and choose one from drop down list. But I'd like to do it more quickly.

Is there any way to show all or several retention policies right on the ribbon? For Example add "1 Week Delete" policy button. So I will need to do just a single click to assign policy to a message.

Thanks!

No on direct buttons... i don't think its in quick steps either but using a consumer version of office on this computer and can't verify (it doesn't support policies at all). Macros won't work on their own, but I haven't looked at Redemption to see if it exposes policies.

I have not checked Got an idea? to see if anyone has suggested it yet, but it would be a good idea to make the suggestion there (in the outlook for windows forum).
