Content added to the File Plan must be set to complete before it is recognized as a record.
Hover over an incomplete record in the File Plan and click Complete Record.
Tip: Incomplete records are marked.
If a record has mandatory metadata that hasn't been completed then a message lets you know that required metadata is missing.
Once a record is completed, it comes under the control of the record category it is filed under, and security restrictions apply.
Note: A record can be filed in multiple categories, see Linking records for more details.
