I recently had the fantastic opportunity to speak at the Microsoft 365 Conference in Las Vegas this May 2023. It was a great time and a fantastic turnout. I think I had 170 – 200 people in my session. I want to use this opportunity to share the slides with the attendees, so I have uploaded them to this post. Please feel free to review them and send me any questions you may require.
Previously I discussed what a property bag was and how to configure it within your environment. The next step in utilizing this property bag is to make it searchable. This can help users find locations they need to based on the site’s property bag values. Even better, however, Microsoft 365 can use the property bag values to enhance features within Microsoft Purview, such as retention policies and retention label policies. In this post, we’ll cover how to make your property bag searchable by linking a property bag to a managed property.
Anyone who has worked with SharePoint development in the golden age of server-side object model development (SOM) likely used the property bag for different requirements in their solutions. With the onset of new development techniques and foundations, the property bag went by the wayside and wasn’t used as often (or at all) when creating solutions. With the new adaptive scope feature in Microsoft Purview, property bag usage has made a resurgence as a necessary location to store values when assigning policies. I will be covering these features in a future post, but for now, I’d like to set the foundation for these posts by discussing property bags and their usage.
In this second video blog, I build on the previous presentation and publish my retention label with a retention label policy.

Thanks for reading!
I have a new announcement to make! In addition to my blog posts, I have also started to create video blogs to go along with my written posts. I know that many prefer to learn visually as opposed to reading text all the time. So I am now going to build video blogs along with many of my written posts. The first one is about retention labels.
