New function proporsal : Coping eDiscovery result to Discovery mailbox operation from S/C center.
Operations from sc center that Copy eDiscovery search results to a discovery mailbox would be very useful.
This operation is available only in Exchange Management Center.
but we want to implement this operation in SC center too. Please consider this function.
We now offer more simplified way to review content in Advanced eDiscovery. Please review documentation here:
Review sets in Advanced eDiscovery (v2.0)
Note that the In-Place eDiscovery and Holds cmdlets in the EAC are now retired:
We recommend considering the new review tool in Advanced eDiscovery.

You used to be able to export search results to a discovery mailbox. This is now gone. If your organisation does not allow PSTs then export now becomes useless. Please restore export to discovery mailbox.
Design Change request or don't depreciate Exchange Online eDiscovery:
Subject: Copy email search results to a discovery mailbox for review - Retired
Since the retirement of eDiscovery search from EAC, you have been using eDiscovery search within Compliance Center. You would like to search according to specific criteria i.e. filter mailbox data based on specific keywords, and copy email search results to a discovery mailbox.
The current solution requires use of PST Import. This approach leads to an issue for those internal teams that have restrictions and blocking on the creation of PST's. It also takes long time to perform the analysis, the team's ability to respond quickly is diminished, and additional resources like network bandwidth will be impacted.
You find that this is not a very straightforward solution to replace a previous functionality which was quite handy.
High- this impacts your ability to use eDiscovery against specific filterable mailbox searches
###Not very useful article:####
Quoting from the official documentation that you may have already gone through, as also linked in the case description:
I use the copy search results functionality of In-Place eDiscovery & Holds in the EAC to copy search results to a discovery mailbox for review by attorneys. What options do I have now?
There are two ways to replicate this functionality today. The first is to use review sets in Advanced eDiscovery v2.0. Review sets have many of the same capabilities you see in a traditional review tool like fast search of documents, tagging, email threading, near duplicate grouping, themes analysis, and predictive coding. If you still want to use discovery mailboxes for review, the second option is to export search results to PST files and then import the PST files to a discovery mailbox by using the PST import feature in the Microsoft compliance center.

Need that functionality very much. Keep it for SC centre.
Anne McLaren commented
Admin, please provide an update on this as it has been over 2 years since your last response.
This is required functionality. Really throws a wrench into any discovery that anyone wants to review without passing pst files around and importing them.
An alternative for those looking at this consideration.
I will often do a content search, preview it in S&C Center, run an export of it to a Single PST, and open that in my Outlook.
Then I often prefer to hop over to powershell and run a purge action on the results
Alternatively, look into the Search-Mailbox function, though it is deprecated, it has this capability
Still not available in S&C Center. Why would you remove this functionality; how do you suggest 3rd parties be given access to review discovery results?
RE: (Admin, Microsoft), "We are porting this feature to the Security & Compliance Center. This functionality will be available before the Exchange Admin Center In-Place eDiscovery and Hold functionality is disabled. Documentation will be available here: https://aka.ms/ediscovery."
July 3rd is here and no functionality and no documentation.
Kevin K commented
I completely agree with everyone here. Not being able to copy to discovery mailboxes is unacceptable. This ability should have been included in the beginning, not as a last-minute feature added just before the old tool is disabled.
We are porting this feature to the Security & Compliance Center. This functionality will be available before the Exchange Admin Center In-Place eDiscovery and Hold functionality is disabled. Documentation will be available here: https://aka.ms/ediscovery.
This feature is absolutely essential to our eDiscovery workflow. We cannot be expected to download a PST file every time someone needs to review an e-mail search. Please please do not remove this feature on 7/1!
Ed S commented
This is insane. You go on a crusade to help us all get rid of PST ****, then you make your own compliance tool only go to PST Files?
This is ridiculous. Please DO NOT GET RID OF IN eDiscovery in Exchange Online until it's feature complete in the Security and Compliance.
Must keep the copy to Discovery mailbox operation in S/C. I have used the function to create a separate "discovery" mailbox with multiple items for specific audits and security results. Then granting access to specific user(s) for their review and analysis. How would multiple clients access a local PST file in this scenario not to mention we ban/block the use of PST en mass.
This really needs to be implemented before July 1. The fact that we do not want to use PSTs in the organization and we want to copy to a discovery mailbox. We often then copy from there to another users mailbox the mail we found.

Absolutely ridiculous that we will be losing the ability to copy eDiscovery search results into a Discovery Mailbox!
Jesse Hernandez commented
Doesn't make any sense why they don't bring over this extremely useful functionality over to the Securitity and Compliance Center since it is being depracated from the Exchange Admin Center in July.
Cary Majors commented
Export from an S/C Content Search or eDiscovery is currently only to a PST file and we are eliminating those from our environment. Microsoft has also announced that eDiscovery through the Exchange Admin Center will be discontinued as of 7/1/2017. This is going to limit our ability to use this functionality.
