New feature, User impact


This update was previously communicated in November 2021 (MC295570) but experienced unforeseen delays during rollout. We truly appreciate your patience as we've worked diligently to resolve these issues. We are now ready at last to announce an updated timeline for rollout of these features.

To help you efficiently meet regulatory obligations for retention and eDiscovery of shared content in your organization, eDiscovery (Premium) will soon support the ability to discover the version of the document at the time that it was shared. This is facilitated by a new Records Management capability that enables you to automatically apply retention labels and retain the version of files shared as cloud attachments in email via Exchange and chat via Teams.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap IDs 70718 and 70580.

[When this will happen:]
Rollout to public preview will begin in late July and is expected to be complete by end of August.
