  1. Enable co-authoring of Protected Documents

    Currently, documents that are labelled can be co-authored in Office, but any document that is encrypted can only be opened by one person at a time. This prevents most of the business scenarios folks use today with two three or more folks editing a document at the same time. Instead - it forces businesses to email copies of a document around after setting AIP policies to allow folks to all edit it. A huge blocker for most of our customers.

  2. Allow Autosave on protected documents

    Allow AutoSave to work when a document is protected. Currently, it becomes disabled when you protect the document which then causes inconsistent behavior across documents and interferes with coauthoring.

  3. Content markings including watermarks support more attributes including current user name

    Expand the visual marking dynamic options to include additional user and device attributes (including from AD, AAD and devices). In particular, add support for the name or email address of the user viewing the document so visible markings can be used to dissuade some vectors for data leakage such as screen pictures.

  4. Enable tracking who changes a label or removes protection

    It could be great knowing who changes a label to correct this or who violates the internal classification policy.

  5. Enable the additional customization of content markings (watermarks, headers and footers)

    Provide a way to configure the location and style of headers and footers in visual marking. We currently provide Font size, color and alignment, but having the ability to specify location, bold, italic and other settings is critical to be able to align the markings with corporate identity.

  6. Microsoft Office Visio support for Sensitivity label

    Include Visio in application support for labeling and protection (in addition to the existing support for protection).

  7. Allow for multiple labels to be assigned to one document or email.

    In some businesses it would be useful to be able to tag a document as matching multiple labels (e.g. containing PII AND including references to Project X). The current design only allows for one label/sublabel to be attached to a document at a time.

  8. App specific visual markings in Built-in labels and Unified Labeling client

    Add the ability to set different visual markings for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook in AIP Unified Labeling client, as described here for AIP Classic client: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/configure-policy-markings#setting-different-visual-markings-for-word-excel-powerpoint-and-outlook

  9. Classification bar should be available in the Windows Office 365 built in integration with sensitivity labels

    Like with the AIP add-in which have a classification bar in addition to the labels under the "Sensitivity" button. The request is that as part of the built in integration with the Windows Office 365 apps for sensitivity labeling, the bar will be available as well

  10. Enable Office Mail Merge functions to apply classification to document and emails

    Currently Mail Merge with mandatory classification, forces users to classify every single email that is sent by the mail merge, even when the users have correctly classified and saved the Word document template. This is causing our users to manually classify every single mail sent in a mailshot. Default classification won't help in the case that there's a requirement for a mailmerge to be a different classification. WE don't want to manage an operational overhead of having scoped groups with passphrases to get around the issue - please can you get AIP classifications working with mail merge.

  11. Increase the number of file types that automatically get protected when attached to a protected email, beyond Office and PDF.

    Currently, when you attach an unprotected Office document or PDF to an email, and then protect the email, the attachment inherits the protection. This should be expanded to include other file types.

  12. Automatically remove redundant footers upon application of content markings

    Many organizations have standard document templates with footers or headers including phrases like "Contoso Confidential" or other standard text. When Office applies content marking in the form of a footer, these texts become redundant and in many cases visually overlap. MIP should offer the ability to detect boxes with specific text and remove them when applying content markings.

  13. Inherit the classification label during export operations (e.g. Save or Print as PDF)

    When users export, save as or print (e.g. to pdf file) a document that has already a classification (or protection) label, the destination file should keep the same classification label and protection of the source file.

  15. Allow reclassification of manually labelled files in MCAS

    Allow reclassification of manually labelled files via AIP/Unified Labels on SPO/OD4 via MCAS File Policies. Currently only files previously labelled by MCAS can be reclassified by MCAS.

  16. Enable automatic classification based on file/message metadata

    Add a Condition option to view metadata fields on documents and x-headers on mail messages and either recommend or automatically classify the document.

  17. Tracking without protection

    I can really se the need for tracking a document without protecting it. Everyone can freely share this document but I can track who and when it is used. Could be based on a signature instead of encryption.

    (Note: the original feature request was called Tracking without Encryption, but this can't be possible as without encryption anyone can open the content even without a connection, and thus tracking would yield extremely unreliable results, so we redefined it as Tracking Without Protection)

    The All Authenticated users feature allows for tracking without protection. Of course, tracking without encryption is not possible since if it’s not encrypted no license is required for accessing the content and thus there can’t be tracking, but the feature currently in preview should meet the same need. I’m renaming the feature request to reflect this reality.

  18. Detect tampering of labels

    Enforce an anti-tampering mechanism (such as the client having a hash of the label and knowing if it was changed) and log centrally for reporting.

  19. Offer Encrypt only from the message ribbon

    Outlook 1804 now has the 'Encrypt Only' function but it is buried under 'Permissions' in the 'Option' Ribbon. Can we have it either alongside the 'Do Not Forward' button on the Message ribbon, or as by reconfiguring the DNF button to give a drop-down option similar to the Permissions button. It would also be good to have and option to display it under the AIP Protect button where the AIP client is installed.

  20. Allow labels to have different visibility in Outlook and the other applications

    Allow for selectable labels to be hidden in Outlook, whilst still appearing in the other applications, if they are not pertinent to Email.
