Admin impact, New feature
Until now, retention policies for Teams channel messages have excluded any private channel messages. With this new feature you will be able to apply retention policies to user messages shared within Teams private channels. Retention policies scoped to private channel messages will require a separate policy from your Teams channels or chat policies. Private channel messages are indexed into the participating users? mailboxes for Compliance purposes, for this reason, private channel policies will be scoped on a per-user basis rather than per-Team basis. You will be able to select all users in the tenant and therefore cover all private channels or a sub-set of users and apply the policy only to the private channel messages they are participants of. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=In%20development%2CRolling%20outsearchterms=70582 70582. [When this will happen:] We expect the rollout of the public preview of this feature to begin in late June 2021 and complete by late July 2021.
