Adding Information Management Policies to Content Types
Information management policies allow you to control how long to retain content, to audit what people do with it, and to add barcodes or labels to documents. A policy can help enforce the rules. You can set up a policy to control how documents are tracked and how long they are kept.
Adding an information management policy to a content type makes it easy to associate policy features with multiple lists or libraries. You can either add an existing information management policy to a content type or create a unique policy for each content type. The Start a Workflow option is only available if you are defining a policy for a list, library, or content type that already has a workflows associated with it.
You will be given a choice of workflows. When barcodes are enabled as part of a policy, they are added to the document properties and displayed in the document'sheader area. barcodes can be manually removed from a document.
You can tell users whether the barcode should be inserted manually or whether they should be prompted to include it when printing or saving. The label's height and width are entered. The label width can be from.25 inches to 20 inches, and the label height can be from.25 inches to 20 inches.
The label text is always centered on the image. Share content types across site collections using a Managed Metadata service application. Content type publishing helps you manage content and Metadata consistently across your sites because content types can be created and updated centrally, and updates can be published out to multiple subscribing site collections or Web applications.

Structural barriers to poor people accessing and using information are sometimes found. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and individuals present in Canada are given the right to access their personal information held by government institutions that are subject to the Privacy Act.
