  1. Creation of forwarding/redirect rule

    So last night this rule triggered for the first time, wasn't really aware of it in the first place.

    Severity:● Low

    Time:6/13/2018 10:00:00 PM (UTC)

    Activity:MailRedirect

    User:person@email.com

    Details: MailRedirect. This alert is triggered whenever someone gets access to read your user's email.

    Description: This alert is triggered when someone in your organization creates an email forwarding or redirect inbox rules using Outlook web app or Powershell -V1.0.0.2

    Now to me this is an incredibly frightening message to receive, since this person has access to extremely sensitive financial information. So since I was thinking this person had been compromised, I…

  2. include changes in journal rules as an activity alert in the Security and Compliance center

    Please consider adding changes in Journal Rules (Exchange) as an activity for alert in the Security and Compliance center. We have many customers who would find value in this.

  4. Need to have the limit of 100 site collections increased for inclusion/exclusion in a retention policy.

    Need to have the limit of 100 site collections increased for inclusion/exclusion in a retention policy. To meet business requirements where they may be thousands of site collections but not all require the same retention policy, this is very limiting limit.

  5. need notification in retention policy when it applying to Exchange online mailboxes without required license

    According to the official article, to include an Exchange Online mailbox in a retention policy created at Security & Compliance Center, the mailbox must be assigned an Exchange Online Plan 2 license. If a mailbox is assigned an Exchange Online Plan 1 license, you would have to assign it a separate Exchange Online Archiving license to include it in a retention policy. However, when create the retention policy, there is no such warning or notification to alert customers that the policy may not apply to certain mailboxes. It will cause customers' data lost because they may expecting the policy will…

  6. Reporting a popup to let colleagues know when their Office Client doesn't meet the O365 dependencies/Security patch requirements

    At this time when a colleague tries to connect to a document located in SharePoint, they just receive a blank copy of the spreadsheet, this happens after they have inputted their login information, (this action repeats) we have discovered that this was due to a cumulative update that was waiting in the their Software centre, after downloading the update manually and rebooting the machine the user was able to open the document since the authentication path wasn't blocked due to the necessary patch being applied. My view on this would be" have a Microsoft PopUp appear letting the client know…

  7. Access and Release quarantine messages of shared mailboxes that end-users belong to

    Access and Release quarantine messages of shared mailboxes that end-users belong to.

    This will enable Self-Service capabilities that Protection.Office.com currently provides to own mailboxes.

    Its useful for users having full access to the Shared mailbox to be able to manage their quarantine as well.

    With notifications Off, this is a useful feature.

  9. Allow dynamic retention policy based on group membership

    The below is too great a restriction and renders the retention policy useless.

    Groups selection confirmation

    The specified groups will be expanded so that an In-Place Hold can be put on the mailboxes in these groups. Only the mailboxes that are currently members of these groups will be placed on hold. Mailboxes added to or removed from these groups won't be added or removed from this hold. After setting the group for the location, the new member changes for this group will not auto apply to this location settings. Do you want to expand these groups?

  10. Retention Compliance Rule - Exclude Item Classes

    Provide the capability to exclude item classes from a Retention Compliance Rule. This will allow for excluding Notes, Tasks, and Calendar items

    MS has published articles detailing how to do this for hold policies dating back to January of 2018, but the cmdlets still do not exist.

  12. Add custom Compliance Frameworks to Compliance Manager

    It would be great to develop Compliance Manager to allow for the creation and development of custom compliance frameworks that can be measured within the tool, weather this be based on 365 metrics or external inputs.

  13. Ability to delete messages through the UI In the Security and Compliance Center

    Under Search and Investigation for Content Searches we would like the Ability to delete messages through the UI in the Security and Compliance Center. Currently you have to create a content search task and then call that task through PowerShell to remove messages. We get spammed a lot and would like the ability to Mass-Remove a Malicious message quickly and easily.

  14. Creation of forwarding/redirect rule alert: improve visibility of address forwarded to

    When an alert is triggered because of the Creation of forwarding/redirect rule policy, finding the address that is being forwarded to is very tedious compared to how important this information is. It is also drowned by all the information around it despite it being the second most important element to decide if the alert should be investigated further or dismissed.

    The current route is:
    1) Click on "view alert details" in the e-mail notification / on the alert in the alert list of the S&C center
    2) In the alert, click on "view activity list"
    3) In the activity list,…

  15. Tisax

    Can you obtain a TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) certification? European automakers are requesting this certification and using Office 365 makes it difficult to comply.

  16. When using Sharepoint lists, sync'd through OneDrive on Mac, ALL deleted items go into Trash

    When using Sharepoint lists, sync'd through OneDrive on a Mac, ALL deleted items, no matter what the permission level in SharePoint, are sync'd to all user's local Mac Trash bins. This causes potential compliance breaches with users being able to access confidential information. According to MS support this is a 'feature' and cannot be disabled. I suggest that there be an option to disable this.

  17. Retention policies for Teams/Chats by AD group

    Retention policies for Teams messages and chats should be assignable by AD group instead of having to manually specify each user individually.

  18. Include Category in meeting request

    When working with a team, where everyone shares the same categories in their (work-)calendars, it would be tremendously useful to share the category of a meeting request with everyone invited to that meeting.

  19. Create separate retention policies for 1:1 chat and Team / Channel chat

    In Skype for Business, there's an option to log or not log messages, and all one to one or one to many messaging threads are treated as ephemeral messaging if logging is disabled.

    In teams, not logging or retaining messaging in a Team or a Channel reduces the value of the tool. Currently, retention can be configured for chat to team or channel messaging, and the same retention level is applied to all messaging. (30 day minimum)

    It would be great if 1:1 or 1:many chats could be treated as ephemeral messaging, and teams / channel chat could be set…

  20. Change retention policy functionality for Teams so that it works on teams below 10mb in size

    Change retention policy functionality for Teams so that it works on teams below 10mb in size.

    As of today, any Team has to be at least 10mb in size for any retention policy to work on that particular team. This is because the Managed Folder Assistant will not run for mailboxes below that size limit. I have yet to understand the reasoning behind this limitation??

    For Teams the limitation as described is especially problematic in that the mentioned 10mb size is calculated based solely on the "totalitemsize" property on the team's mailbox. This is a problem, since that value does…
