I'm trying to wrap my brain around the ins and outs of configuring a SharePoint Records Center for our smallish (250+) employee insurance company.
We don't have anyone in IT dedicated to site design for SharePoint so I'm sort of on my own and trying to read as much as I can.
Our records retention policy is almost finished, and we are working on specifying how long to keep the various types of company records to comply with regulations etc. I really think SharePoint could give us the records management structure we need and I want to do it right.
I have found a lot of process documentation and "how to follow steps in the system" type of articles, but what I really need are examples to help me understand the difference between, say, record types vs. content types, lists vs. libraries; and especially how to set things up right on the front end so that I can create subsites that carry over the all the features I want into the various subsites.
I think I get it, but to really click for me I need to see examples.
