Most organisations have at least two categories of users – those with laptops, and a need for offline access to archived data, and those who are desktop bound, and don’t need offline access to archived data.

How many desktop policies do you have in your environment?

Are you lucky enough to be able to slice the user community in to just those two examples, or do you have many, many, many more?  Sometimes two policies aren’t enough, and copies are made for specific groups of people with specific needs over time. They can be a little bit cumbersome to maintain. Sometimes people even rename the policy when it is no longer going to be used (rather than deleting it).

Tweaking desktop policies is something that can really take up a lot of time, especially if there are more than a few policies to change. So how many policies do you have in your environment right now? Let me know in the comments below…

  1. I try to keep my life as simple as possible and just have the one. I’m pretty sure management don’t even realise that users could have access to offline archived content (that info is on a need to know basis and they don’t need to know lol). 6000 users on EV and no one has requested it yet.
