Retention Policy to include "AND" statements

When creating a retention policy, it would be really helpful for our institution if the policy rules could audit two rules together, instead of separately.

Example: Delete anything that was created more than five years ago AND hasn't been viewed in more than a year.

Right now, these two policies rules don't work together, and the audit captures everything that falls into either category. Are we the only institution needing this? I also wonder how institutions are working around this current complication?

You can now set policies with AND/OR rules. https://support.panopto.com/s/article/How-to-Use-Retention-Tools


  • That’s a great idea and is a huge need.
  • We implemented a policy that removes content that has been unused for four consecutive years, and it has been working well for us over the last year. I totally see that there is a need for more granularity in some situations, but we elected to keep it simple, and we will probably keep that.
