Apply Record Retention Rules to all Subfolders
Owners and VaultAccess are the only users who can exercise this function of VisualVault. To replace retention rules on subfolders:
Right click on the parent folder where the retention rules are set correctly.
Select Record Retention.
Select Apply Record Retention Rules to all Subfolders.
This will force all subfolders to have the same record retention rules as the parent folder. Refer to Record Retention Rules topic for more information on how these rules might be applied to the documents under various different circumstances depending on the current retention status.
