Effective in version 6.3, you can run the Purge Expired Records job to generate the Retention Expiration reports based on a date. You can enter a past date, the current date, or a future date.
If you select a past date or the current date, the report shows the number of records that are eligible for purge on that date. You can pause the job to review the report and then schedule the job to purge the records.
If you select a future date, the report lists the number of records that will be available for purge by that date. The job stops after it generates the report. You cannot run the job to purge records.
Previously, you could not specify a date for the report. The report was based on the day you ran the Purge Expired Records job. You could not generate a report based on a past date or a future date.
