Overview

As an inSync Cloud administrator, you can provide Legal administrators access only to specific types of Legal Hold policies. This will enable the administrator to view policies that belong only to those types. 

When you assign roles to a Legal administrator such as create, manage, view, and delete, it’s restricted to the specific types of Legal Hold policies. The Legal administrator cannot access policies of other types.  

This is helpful when there are several Teams contributing to the legal matters of the organization.  

Only inSync Cloud administrators can create, view, edit, or delete a Legal Hold policy type and view all Legal Holds irrespective of their type. A Legal administrator can only select the type while creating a Legal Hold.

Any Legal administrator created before May 15, 2021, with Create and manage holds right, will get access to all Legal Hold policies in your organization if you have not assigned a type to a policy.

To assign a Legal Hold type to a policy, see Manage a legal hold policy

Create a Legal Hold policy type

  1. On the inSync Management Console, click Governance > Legal Hold.

  2. Click Settings on the left pane. 

  3. Click Add Legal Hold Type.

  4. In the Type name field, enter a phrase that you want to use to categorize a group of Legal Hold policies. 

  5. Click Save

Rename a Legal Hold policy type

Notes

  • You cannot change the names of the policy types that are available by default. 

  • Renaming will update the type name everywhere on the inSync Management Console. It might also confuse existing Legal administrators who belong to that type. We recommend exercising caution before renaming a type.  

  1. On the inSync Management Console, click Governance > Legal Hold.

  2. Click Settings on the left pane. 

  3. Select the Legal Hold Type and click (more options) and click Edit

  4. Make the desired changes and click Save.

     

Delete a Legal Hold policy type

Notes

  • You cannot delete the policy types that are available by default. 

  • When you delete a type, Legal administrators will no longer be able to view the Legal Hold policies in that type. 

  1. On the inSync Management Console, click Governance > Legal Hold.

  2. Click Settings on the left pane. 

  3. Select the Legal Hold Type and click (more options) and click Delete

  4. Click Delete on the confirmation box.
