Record retention label - Disable "Record Status" toggling feature
Based on Microsoft new feature release in Jan 2020, it allows user to toggle "Record status" to lock / unlock for a documents that are being applied with record retention labels. This feature is undesirable whereby it allows users with "members" rights to unlock and modify a record. We wish to have more control in terms of record handling and wish to disable this feature. Is there a way to hide this option from users and only allow site collection administrator to do so?
Thanks for your submission – we have heard this from other customers, and it is on the backlog. Will update once work has commenced.

Eric - this feature already does retain the version of the record which was unlocked (unchanged) in the Preservation Hold Library under the "Records" folder.

However, if this feature (allowing locking/unlocking of records by users with member rights) is combined with keeping the *version* that was marked as a record *unchanged* -- i.e. it is still a version in the history and cannot be deleted, and is marked as a record -- then this feature is actually pretty cool as is.
