Displaying assigned retention tag/policy in Outlook 2013 Inbox default vies RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this questions. If it is not please forgive me and direct me to the right forum. I know that I can check if the email message has a retention tag/policy applied if I open it in Inspector window. It is listed under subject.

    My problem is that I don't know the way how to display the retention tag/policy in the Inbox default view next to the the properties like: subject, from, received etc. So the users don't need to open the message to check if they applied the retention tag. This way they can look at every message in the inbox and see which message has the retention tag missing.  I assume I will have to employ some coding and I am OK with that.

    Can I write a outlook add-in that will query for retention tag for each message and display it in the column along with other mapi properties? I need a advice example how to programmatically extract the PR_POLICY_TAG and convert it from binary to string. Than I can change the default view xml to include this property I assume.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
