How can we improve compliance or protect your users better in Office 365?

delete content from content search through gui not using New-ComplianceSearchAction

Currently users with the ediscovery role can run search for content and download that content. Using the New-ComplianceSearchAction -purge -softdelete you can delete this content (which we use for deleting spam or malware emails out of mailboxes). We do not want our security operations team to use powershell to complete these deletes so we have to write a gui to provide this functionality. Please enable the ability to complete deletes within the SCC itself

    the reason I need this is because I have never received any powershell scripting training and do not know how to do that. Having this other available option would be incredibly helpful.

    I bet Microsoft builds these parts of the O365 in PowerShell first basically, and the GUI comes in secondary port of the PowerShell back-end.

    Just saying...

    Agree completely. It should not require a ton of time to respond to an email threat. By not providing proper tools Microsoft is hindering threat mitigation. The Admin consoles have great potential. Developers also need to implement better search and export features. Public Sector email records requests are much more time consuming than using on-prem dedicated mail archiving. Additionally, forcing the use of Edge to export to PST should be eliminated

    It is ridiculous that Microsoft would force basic functions to be performed in powershell and use boolean terms. Other vendors offer full featured GUI for administration. For all the hype about moving to O365, it seems that doing so complicates managability and requires adding staff. So much for microsoft providing a complete solution

    Delete content from content search through gui not using New-ComplianceSearchAction, this would be a welcome feature. Please consider.
