RecordPoint FAQs

Browse our Frequently Asked Questions.

Doesn’t SharePoint already do Records Management?

Yes, it does but it does have several limitations that mean in a complex records management environment, particularly one that is focused on meeting the Record Management standards, SharePoint out of the box will not have all the functionality that is required. Adding RecordPoint to SharePoint fills these gaps.

What additional features does RecordPoint have over SharePoint?

RecordPoint extends SharePoint to provide the following:

  • Centralizing the Records management policies in SharePoint to allow the records processes to easily scale from a few sites to an enterprise with thousands of SharePoint sites with the consistent application of classification and retention policies.
  • Scaling to hundreds of SharePoint Records centers and hundreds of nodes in a single Records taxonomy (classification scheme).
  • RecordPoint establishes rules for metadata inheritance based on the records management rules of the organization in the context of the sites, lists and libraries, and user and system derived metadata.
  • Additional security, audit, import, export and metadata components of SharePoint are enriched to ensure SharePoint meets Australian, New Zealand and other global standards.

What versions of SharePoint does RecordPoint work with?

RecordPoint works with SharePoint 2010 and 2013. It will also manage content in Office 365.

To run RecordPoint will additional servers or infrastructure be required?
