  1. add ability for external counsel to download case exports

    Often I have to share an export with external counsel.

    In my case, I create guest accounts in AAD, and a private team.

    Then I turn off the retention policy for the team, download the export, and then upload it into the team and share the files with the guest.

    That way I have logging and proof for chain-of-custody when they download.

    But... that is painfully time consuming, and I have to remember to manually parse the audit logs to provide the legal team with chain-of-custody reports.

    It would be awesome, if you could just add a list of external…

  2. Ability to copy communication content from Issuance to Re-issuance window in the Communication tab

    As re-issuance is just resending the communication to the custodians again, a functionality is required where user can choose the same content as created for the Issuance rather than copying and pasting it

  3. Provide ability to search and export 'Shared with me' items in OneDrive

    There are occasions when we would want to include those items shared with a OneDive user in the ‘Shared with me’ folder. It would be nice to have a way to include these in search results and any following eDiscovery exports.

  4. Flag email item original version (received or sent) on an eDiscovery export PST

    While doing an export using eDiscovery features, if there are different versions of an email sent, because user edited the item after it was sent, there is not easy way to identify the item. Only after adding "Modified" column an Analyst can identify such item. If item is flagged as original (considering emails received and sent can be considered an operation), it will considerable reduce the complexity over a search that can contain thousand of items.

  5. Change the Display Name dynamic tag to first name first and last name last for Legal Hold Communications

    Currently the Display name is last name first. This looks bizarre on a legal hold memo.

  6. add alert policy activity on new Alert Policies page for eDiscovery case create, delete and change

    The old Alert policy page (https://protection.office.com/managealerts) does not allow adding a group email address as the recipient of the alerts.

    The new Alert policy page though allow group email as recipients of alert but it has limited activities. It does not include the creation, deletion and changes for eDiscovery case. It only includes start of Search and export alert but not creation or changes made for an eDiscovery case.

  8. cannot find out user in SCC ediscovory admin

    cannot find out user when we add user in eDiscovery manager with normal search with alias or samaccount name
    from MS reply, we can use only "Display name" to search account in eDiscovery manager.... I cannot understand why only "Display name" in SCC. It should work with Alias/ samaccount name

  9. eDiscovery Main portal page search box should allow to search for a custodian

    On the main portal page of the eDiscovery section there is a search box. This appears to only search the case names. I should be able to locate all the cases that contain "Joe Smith" as a custodian. The only way that you are able to search for cases for now is to chase the inplaceholds attribute in PS and then convert those guids to actual case names:

  11. Limit e-discovery to perform searches by geographical location

    We need the option to limit e-discovery searches by geographical location, we are a global company with presence across the globe with multiple legal teams, but due to countries regulation we need to have this option available.

  13. REMOVE Active Directory requirement for participant condition so lists can be searched rather than entered one by one.

    The old search tool had the ability to search participant lists, now it has to be entered one by one and validated in active directory. participants cannot include emails sent from outside the organization now. We need that feature back.

  14. exporting format blob

    In order to keep Compliance Portal users from exporting files, We are centralizing the exported documents requests, We will use the Azure blob and it would be nice to have a native file export format (non-loadfile, non-review platform, and non-pst). (e.g. filename.msg) Currently exports to the blob have the md5hash value as the file name that is cross referenced to the load file. The folder structure must also remain intact. Not all exports are loaded into a review platform.

  15. Better definition of the search results data size in E-discovery - estimated vs actual

    “It was not clear to us (users of the tool) that what the search generates is an estimate and not the real size of the data searched. In this case, I suggest to Microsoft to include this information “estimated data” in the screen and by so, improve the end-user experience with this product”

  17. Create Search feature will be moved from EAC but permissions will not

    If this feature will be removed from EAC, permissions should be replicated to the Security & compliance module, or admins should be notified ahead of time of doing so, that way there's no disruption or loss of the funcitionality.

  19. Have compliance search flag e-mail aliases

    Please have compliance searches check for e-mail aliases. Such as a mailbox is being searched and there is an address on the recipients lists that is an alias for that mailbox. (Everything is a hit.)

    For reference ticket 17420048 took a week with support and a 4.5 hour phone call to find the issue. Having the search kick a warning or error would have avoided all that.

  20. Advanced eDiscovery - Review set Display after Sorting by Date

    Currently in the review set if the column widths are changed to see more date and then output is sorted on date the screen refreshes, in date order, but the column widths are reverted.
    It would be nice for the column widths to stay at the amended width.

    also, it would nice to be able to sort on other columns.
