I'm continuing my series of posts highlighting some of the new features in SharePoint 2010 by talking about one of the new document management features.  

In Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, it’s a lot easier to have document management policies that are broken into stages. In MOSS 2007, if you wanted to have a policy that had several different steps, you would have to write the custom workflows to handle it. With SharePoint 2010, when defining your policy, you just have to click to add new stages and set the policy rules for each one.

You can then use a combination of the out of the box policy actions and your own custom workflows. Simple!

If you buy MOSS 2007 with Software Assurance now, you’ll get the upgrade rights to 2010 when it’s released. There’s no better time to buy!
