Automatically remove deleted auto-applied labels from documents
Auto-applied retention label, and the policy, was deleted, but the label is not going away for the records that were auto-tagged by this policy.
For example, we created a new label, assigned a policy that would auto-apply the label based on keywords in the documents of the library. Then we deleted the policy and the label, but the document's retention label didn't disappear. We have waited 7+ days just to be safe, but the label on the record is still there. Is this the intended design? (We opened a ticket with Microsoft and they've confirmed this is the case - with the caveat that the order of the steps needed to be 1) remove the label from the policy, 2) THEN delete the label in the S&C)
After discussing with Microsoft, and using the right steps, the label isn't available for selection, but those documents who were auto-tagged still display the old label. However, if you poke at it with the Details Pane in SharePoint, all of a sudden, it's gone. But, it thankfully doesn't show that you've modified anything, the label goes away with that one action.
But here's where the bigger problem starts - you have to poke each file individually to get the label to GO AWAY. Please, please, please give some kind of option where we can (upon deleting the label) make the Compliance center go poke the files for us - seems more work to use auto-applied labels to auto label things that we then can't auto-remove :(
