Updated April 14, 2022: Customers that have "Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps" turned on, will need to create a custom policy in order to maintain safe links protections in Office 365 Apps. This change was planned to be deployed in conjunction with the completion of the Built-In Protection. However, the two changes will reach customers at differing times. Beginning mid-April tenants will see the policy setting Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps in both the Global Settings menu and Custom Policy. As a reminder in the future tenants will not be able to manage this setting in the Global Settings menu.
Only the policy setting "Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps" configured in the Global Setting menu will be enforced at this time. Another update will be sent prior to removing the policy setting from the Global Setting menu."

To create a more consistent user experience across all policies in Microsoft Defender for Office portal the following Safe Links policy attributes will be migrated from the Global Settings flyout to the custom policy settings.
Note: Use Safe Links in Office 365 Apps
Do Not Track when users click protected links in Office 365 Apps
Do not let users click through the Original URL in Office 365 Apps
[When this will happen:]
We will begin rolling this out in early May and expect to complete rollout late June.
