New Retention Schedule for FASmail and MS Teams
As of October 4, 2021 a new 90-day automated data retention schedule has been implemented for certain transitory folders for UBC Faculty and Staff Email (FASmail). Information held in the Deleted Items, Junk Mail and RSS Feeds will be automatically destroyed after the 90th day. There is also a 90-day retention period for messages contained in Microsoft Teams chat. These retention periods were instituted to comply with UBC Records Management Policies and requirements, reduce digital clutter, and reduce the burden on the FOI team.
Please keep in mind that these folders are meant for transitory conversations. Records that are intended for long-term storage should be saved elsewhere.
