A Date Property Trigger represents a date derived from an item’s metadata properties. For example, suppose a document contains the property of Created Date. To use this property as a Trigger, you must define a new Date Property Trigger.
Date Property Triggers are typically used to compare a "True Document Date" with the current date to determine if retention should begin. A "True Document Date" can be any date property stored with a record. For example:
Start retention on the date a record's content was modified:
Set Property Name to "@modified"
Start retention on a custom date column in SharePoint
Set Property Name to the SharePoint column name
For SharePoint, use the Display Name, not the internal name
