A three-state workflow that assigns items in SharePoint lists between people based on changes
to a specific column

To further support records management, compliance, and regulation needs, Office SharePoint Server
enables you to define policies for such things as document retention. For example, you can define
which documents in a certain document library will be automatically archived for a given period of
time without the possibility of anyone deleting them. You can specify the date when these documents
are to be removed from the archive and deleted. As with workflows, there is a web-based user interface
(as shown in Figure 1-6). Users can choose to customize the out-of-the-box policies, or they can be extended
The document management functionality is completed by an auditing capability. Practically any event
associated with a document can be audited, including documents being created, edited, viewed, and
deleted. You can extend this capability programmatically so that custom events can be audited.
Office SharePoint Server also extends content management to include web content management by
integrating the functionality of the Content Management Server.
