  4. Add all available conditions to "Add conditions" window in Content Search

    The list of item properties available as search conditions is contained in https://support.office.com/en-us/article/keyword-queries-and-search-conditions-for-content-search-c4639c2e-7223-4302-8e0d-b6e10f1c3be3?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US. Not all of these conditions appear when you use the "Add conditions" button during search query building. For example, HasAttachment and Importance are not among the 19 conditions to choose from. It is possible to add "HasAttachment:true" as a keyword, but it is not intuitive that you would add a condition to the keyword box.

  5. O365 Group Mailbox In-place Hold

    O365 Group Mailbox In-place Hold is a very nice feature, while exploring observed that from GUI O365 Admin console we have an option to add ALL Public folders and mark them for in-place hold, could you please consider the Group-mailboxes as a filter to enable ALL group mailboxes on in-place hold in bulk from GUI.

    Thanks,
    Anil

  6. Enable search for deleted items in Compliance Search

    I am amazed to find there is no "find deleted items" in the compliance search options.

    I was certain this must be the most common cause for needing to do a search - user misbehaves, deletes offending messages/skype chats - management requests audit trail.

    Perhaps it is available somewhere?? I could not see it in the guided search or the advanced search, there's nothing on the help pages. This is just basic functionality for an audit tool, I'm amazed that it does not exist.

  7. In-Place Hold notification when recoverable items soft limit quota is reached

    It would be great to have a notification sent to the administrator setting the hold when the soft limit is reached in case of an indefinite In-Place Hold being set. For the time being the only option is to run a PowerShell script periodically to make sure the recoverable items folder is not full.

    As an addition, it would be great if a report is added in the Admin Center to view In-Place Hold information for one or multiple users such as storage consumed.

  8. Advanced eDiscovery - Export Exchange Content Options

    When exporting review set data as "Loose files and PSTs" under Advanced eDiscovery it should provide the same options that are provided under Core.
    Currently an export from Advanced eDiscovery creates One PST file for each mailbox.

    We request One PST file containing all messages in a single folder.
    It should also allow us to enable deduplication for Exchange content.

    Thank you

  9. Implementation of additional Search condition for Mailboxes of Exchange online -SearchDumpster(purgesfolder)Only option

    SearchDumpsterOnly parameter in Search-Mailbox cmdlet would be very helpful in Exchange Online. Implementation of this kind of additional Search condition for Mailboxes in "content search" or "eDiscovery" would be also helpful to us.

    As each user's e-mailboxes are getting larger in size(Max. 100 GB in spec.), it would cost too much time and hardware resources...

    PowerShell Cmdlet for Exchange online "Search-mailbox" allow this
    search condition with -searchdumpsteronly parameter.

    This additional feature also contributes to reduce the size of exported PST files if it is implemented.

  10. Make eDiscovery search results with no expiration date.

    Make eDiscovery search results with no expiration date.The results should stay there as long as it was not deleted. We noticed that in the eDiscovery of Security and Compliance Admin Center, the months-or-year-old search results has no data in it. We should still be able to export the results even if the search has been made years back.

  12. Exporting In-Place Archived emails to PST using ediscovery

    1- Exporting In-Place Archived emails to a PST is not possible, as when we try to add query to the search it does not take place and the search returns 0 emails.
    2- add link at the query window section which have query samples to be used.
    3- Folder hierarchy need to be as the original mailbox.

  13. Migration of cases from core eDiscovery to advanced eDiscovery

    There is currently no way to migrate an existing case in core eDiscovery to advanced eDiscovery without recreating the case. The removal of "switch to advanced eDiscovery" will happen with the retirement of legacy AeD (soon) and there is no option to move a case to AeD without recreation after that.

  14. Reviewer Role

    (see case 15058078)
    Per all documentation, the purpose of the Reviewer role is to allow members to view and access case data in Advanced eDiscovery to which they have been assigned. However, a user assigned to the Reviewer role seems too much in the S&C Center.

    Based on least permissions, a Reviewer should only be able to see their Threat management (Quarantine) and the eDiscovery menu showing their case(s). Instead, they can currently view:
    Alerts
    Records Management (though empty)
    Data Governance (read only)
    Mail flow dashboard (though not populated due to error)
    Data privacy (GDPR dashboard and Data subject requests) …

  15. ComplianceSecurityFilter for OneDrive & SharePoint based on user location

    We have to separate eDiscovery access between countries for all Office365 workloads. For Exchange Online a ComplianceSecurityFilter can be applied to eDiscovery Managers so only content from mailboxes of their countries is returned (based on the mailbox location attribute). For OneDrive and SharePoint Online it should also be possible to apply such a filter, but to my knowledge it is not available.

  16. Case sensitive searching where "WAS" is not the same as "was"

    Case sensitive searching where "WAS" is not the same as "was". We have a department called Wichita Animal Shelter which is often referred to as WAS but "was" is a very common term in the English language and would result in a lot of unnecessary matches. I am sure there are many other common times when this would be helpful. I had to use a 3rd party search product to do a query on this very situation.

  17. Properly clear InPlaceHolds on the mailbox objects where the retention policy or case hold policy has been deleted already

    When we put a retention or case hold policy on a mailbox and subsequently delete this policy it seems that the GUID of that policy is still left on the InPlaceHolds property of the mailbox. This prevents us from deleting the mailbox as it says there is still a hold present.

    Looks like a bug to me?

  18. Allow Administrators the option to restrict users from purging emails

    as admin it would be very helpful feature if we have the option to disable or restrict our users from purging emails for company security purposes. Or to have the another option to restore deleted/purged emails aside from using content search

  19. Allow Bulk edit of Hold locations

    At present each location to be put in Hold must be added one at a time. this is very laborious. Can we get bulk edit for Hold locations. Like Bulk edit in the legacy UI for Search

  20. Time Zones

    It would be helpful in the Search fields, when selecting the Received\Sent Date and Time to be able to select a time zone instead of having to use the International Date system
