Summary:
Microsoft SharePoint is introducing improved version history controls to enhance data protection and storage management. Admins can set intelligent version deleting options and default organization limits. The Public Preview begins in May 2024, with General Availability starting in August 2024. New capabilities include automatic and manual version limits, consistent default settings, and detailed version storage reporting. Users can view and adjust file version expirations. Admins should review updated documentation to prepare for these changes.

Details:
Updated May 1, 2024: Note: If you receive an error "The requested operation is part of an experimental feature that is not supported in the current environment", this indicates that the feature has not reached your tenant yet.
Version history, a critical part of Microsoft SharePoint’s built-in data protection, tells users how a file has evolved over time. Users can easily revert to an older version if business needs change or if files are damaged by user error or malware. Version storage controls allow you as admins to set an appropriate level of recoverability and auditability for your organization. Based on strong customer feedback, we will release enhanced version storage controls so you can meet your needs efficiently and at scale.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 145802.
[When this will happen:]
Public Preview: We will begin rolling out early May 2024 and expect to complete by late June 2024. Admins can opt into the Public Preview by running the SharePoint Online Management PowerShell cmdlet Set-SPOTenant -EnableVersionExpirationSetting $true. Please make sure that your SharePoint Online Management Shell is updated to version 16.0.24810.12000 or higher so you can run the specified cmdlets. For guidance, refer to Get started with the SharePoint Online Management Shell.
General Availability (Worldwide): We will begin rolling out late August 2024 and expect to complete by mid-October 2024.
