    The Disposition Review dashboard show a list of many documentens that have to be reviewed when using in large companies. It would be useful to create Dispotition Review approval workflows to managed them.

  2. Provide the ability to call a Microsoft Flow in a Retention Label in Security and Compliance Center similar to an IRM policy in a library.

    When configuring a retention label in security and compliance center a Microsoft Flow should be an option to execute when executed. Similar functionality exists in Information Rights Management in a document library that can call a SharePoint designer workflow. Flow should be integrated into SCC to accommodate custom actions.

  4. OneDrive retention policy for terminated employee

    Currently, OneDrive retention policy only applies to when the OneDrive file was created or modified. I like to have the ability to set a retention policy for a Terminated employee's OneDrive contents over 30 days.

  5. Include comments in the audit log

    In Records Manager we can Extend Retention and provide a comment. The ExtendRetention event is captured in the Audit Log but unfortunately the Comment is not. In fact, we're not sure where the comment goes but at least it should be in the Audit log for this event.

  6. Adding Preservation Lock to Labels

    Labels are a great tool for creating records but the one item I currently see missing is the ability to do Preservation Lock for labels that are marked as records when retention is used. The standard retention policy doesn't necessarily work here because there can be multiple labels published to a site collection and using keywords from a data governance retention policy is not going to be as accurate as a label that gets applied by default in a document library. This is specifically important to make sure compliance is met for the 17a-4 rule that may pertain to multiple…

  7. Change retention policy functionality for Teams so that it works on teams below 10mb in size

    Change retention policy functionality for Teams so that it works on teams below 10mb in size.

    As of today, any Team has to be at least 10mb in size for any retention policy to work on that particular team. This is because the Managed Folder Assistant will not run for mailboxes below that size limit. I have yet to understand the reasoning behind this limitation??

    For Teams the limitation as described is especially problematic in that the mentioned 10mb size is calculated based solely on the "totalitemsize" property on the team's mailbox. This is a problem, since that value does…

  8. Sharepoint Subsite Retention

    Subsite deletion error when under a global retention.
    I understand that Site Roots within Site collections are forbidden to be deleted, as the Preservation Hold Folder is stored there.
    Today, the same message appears when attempting to delete Subsites within the Site Collection, Deletion is forbidden.
    For our environment, this is very difficult to manage, as subsites are created and deleted very often.
    What about storing in the Preservation Hold folder the entirety of subsites instead of blocking the deletion of the subsite?

  10. Show expiry date on documents in OneDrive and all ShrePoint Online Sites from the global retension labels

    Having set up a retention label to delete all documents in users OneDrive's and SharePoint Sites if not modified in last 7 years the users do not get to see a expiration date against all documents.

    The expiry notice does work with Email Retention, it would be good if the same was seen on documents

  11. retention permanently delete

    Allow deletion policy to permanently delete files instead of going to recycle bin. The old Compliance Center in SharePoint Online had this option but it is not in the O365 version. This is a requirement for legal compliance.

  12. Ability to change retention on a previously published label

    Would be nice to have the ability to change a retention date of a label and have it apply to all messages the label was previously applied to (record label and none record label).

  13. Include a new field in Labels Dashboard called IsPublished

    It would be nice to have a field in the label dashboard in Security & Compliance that would show whether that label is published. Currently there is no way to see this via the UI, unless you look at the label policies individually.

  14. File plan CitationUrl length too small

    The max length for the CitationUrl field is 64 chars. This is way too small for a URL that will be referring to specific page. For example: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation. Please increase to 254 chars.

    thanks – the import file plan option is limited to 64 characters, but you should be able to edit file plan descriptors from the compliance center, from the create label wizard in the records management solution, and should be able to provide longer urls via that approach.

  15. Allow version deletion in sites with retention policy applied

    Currently users can delete documents in sites with retention policies applied. When a user tries to delete a version of a document, they get an error message. Since versions of documents show up in the Preservation Hold Library as separate documents, it would improve consistency of behavior if users could also delete versions of a document.

  18. Retention Policy - SharePoint - Allow Site Deletion

    With SharePoint protected by a retention policy users are not able to delete sites. We should be allowed to delete sites, yet content should remain discoverable via eDiscovery. For instance, I have a Team Site I no longer need and want to remove from my view. Or I created a test site to explain how to do something and I can't get it to go away. Modifying the retention policy to exclude sites to allow deletion is not a useful solution. Please fix.

  19. Need APIs to handle Labels in protection.office.com

    Is there any APIs to manage Labels in Security and Compliance portal / Office 365 for Sharepoint online, Exchange online and Onedrive online ? If exists, please give the details for the same.

    If not, will the same operations available through Powershell ? And please provide the details, if exists.

  20. Retention reports that actually give relevant information

    While we can run content searched to find that items are being archived, etc. we need reports that show us that retention is in place and working. This needs to be something presentable that shows all accounts in each location (hopefully with a current item count or something). Client's ask all the time if retention is setup and working and while I can tell them it is and show them it is setup there is nothing to easily SHOW them is is actively working.
