  1. ediscovery

    Please add ability to search and Tag documents and then use those tags in the Content Search/eDiscovery. For example, run search and tag all documents that are responsive to this search with some sort of tag.

    So when next time when running a new search, those documents can be searched or excluded from results by specifying the specific tag.

  2. Ability to roll back a folder to a specific date and time

    The ability to be able to roll back (restore) a folder to a specific date and time would benefit all of us. Recently when attempting to recover some emails that were deleted by a policy accidentally, it took a lot longer than it should have done, as the number of items in the mailbox was in excess of 26,000 items, and eDiscovery was unable to recover the folder heirarchy. If the deletion was traced, and could have been rolled back, this would have be a lot easier.

  3. Add more Dynamic Tags to the Legal Hold Communications tab.

    Currently there are only 5 dynamic tags: Display Name (for the custodian), Acknowledgement Link, Portal Link, Issuing Officer Email, and Issuing Date. Add more please! Suggestions would be: Issuing Officer's Name (in first last format), Issuing Officer's Title, Legal Hold Title.

  4. several ways to make eDiscovery less painful

    please:
    1) clarify what to input into the fields designed to allow an export into the cloud/Azure (Container URL and SAS Token???)
    2) allow users to give outside counsel “guest” access to review/analyze the results w/o complicated IT steps in between
    3) develop an easier way than manually navigating through so many different PST files post-export.
    4) During the review process, there should be a way to “sort” by subject line etc, and to speed up the “tagging” process
    5) should be a way to create default "tags" that a user can replicate by default for future cases, rather than…

  5. Allow the use of a specific extension attribute to determine export naming convention for Search and Compliance export of pst file

    Per MS Case #:21712097 When a .pst file is exported from an eDiscovery search the naming convention utilizes an available entry from the EmailAddresses list with no priority given.
    When exporting on a search the naming conventions are randomly chosen. We would like to see some consistency when providing to outside council.

  6. Change in how eDiscovery searches involving "Document ID" search criteria processes exports.

    Known Bug depending on the size of the results when creating searches with eDiscovery using Document ID. Producing instabilities and exporting which never finishes. Due to instable exporting, we need a look into a better way these type of searches are processed in the back end.

  7. When eDiscovery Manager is assigned to a user, too many links are clickable in left navigation bar

    I need an access permission in Security Compliance Center which allows users to use eDiscovery function only.

    When I assign eDiscovery Manager role to a user, user finds many links such as "Access Permission", "DLP" which is unnecessary for this role.

  8. Core Ediscovery "export tool" should be a stand alone application that a person can run as an installable application

    Currently every time you try and do an eDiscovery export out of Core, it requires a user download, run, and install the downloader export tool in order to then enter in their "guid Id" to download the export. This is a separate Edge window that opens up and starts installing. This is not possible for some users.

    In a highly secure environment, or in a virtualized environment like ours, end users do not have the ability to do this on their machines. We need the ability to install the Export Downloader Tool as a standalone product, 1 time for users,…

  9. Ediscovery Search Results for email metadata should not include ALL documents from SPO

    Currently, defining a Custodian with their mailbox, OneDrive, and maybe even a Team or two in Advanced eDiscovery, then using that custodian as my search location to search for things like kind:microsoftteams, or kind:email, results in a hit on EVERY document in the defined SharePoint sites for the custodian. It should hit on zero.

  10. Never retain 1:1 or 1:many chat messages in Microsoft Teams even for mailboxes on Legal Hold.

    Currently if a mailbox is on legal hold, all Teams chat messages are held as part of the legal hold policy. There should be an exclusion that allows chat messages to be handled separately and not retained. This would be similar to Skype for Business where it could be set to never retain messages.

  11. Looking up OneDrive accounts on eDiscovery

    The options currently available to find a user's OneDrive are not intuitive enough, its based out on guess work, there should be an interface that, just as searching for mailboxes, show the OneDrive sites for all the "Smith, John"'s on the tenant

  13. Provide a user created hash list for easy exclusion before getting to the Review Set.

    In the review sets there are a ton of shell files that don't need to be there. It doesn't make sense to pay a reviewer to click on a twitter logo used in my organization, wait for the page to load, decide that it isn't relevant, mark it as such, and move on. Alternatively, have visually nested review sets. The email that may have relevance first, and then nested underneath that, all the contents/attachments/logos for quick exclusion.

  15. Increase number of emails to be previewed in Contents Search

    Exporting PST data and importing it via Outlook takes time. If user could view all email items in Content Search Preview, it saves user's time.

  17. Legal Hold Custodian Report

    Legal Hold Custodian Report Export that includes custodian names, email, and data sources for each custodian.

    the "Export" function just exports the case names, status, created date, "last modified date", and "last modified by".

    It would be great if we added "custodian name", email, Role, and status to that report.

    We provide monthly status reports to inside counsel and manually add the custodian data to each case.

  18. Collect specific folder from One Drive

    The eDiscovery solution should allow the collection of specific folders, at the moment you can only collect the whole drive, which is not practical
