Retention

“Assign Policy” option missing for Outlook users.

Posted on Updated on

I have always wondered why I was the only one in my whole organization that has the option ‘Assign Policy’ in Outlook.  I am the Exchange Engineer and administrator, but I don’t remember giving myself exclusive permissions.  Searching online also did not give me what I was looking for.

If you are like me, who searched online and did not find any answers.  Here is how I fixed this issue for regular users.

I am using Exchange 2013, to allow your users to assign their own policies, follow the steps below

  1. Login to Exchange Admin Center (EAC)
  2. Go to Permissions > User Roles and modify your default Role Assignment Policy, or whichever policy is assigned to your users.
  3. Check the box for ‘MyRetentionPolicies’ and that should give users permissions they are missing.
