With GDPR coming, it’s good news that Teams now supports Office 365 retention policies. You can apply retention to messages posted to channels and chats, or use a mixture of policies to target different sets of users and teams. You might be surprised how Teams has implemented retention – and remember, we’re only talking about messages – other content might also need a policy.
Office 365 keeps on changing, which makes it very hard to keep up with detail. The big stuff gets covered in articles but small changes might be overlooked. In this post, Tony looks at some of the changes that happened in the last week or so that you might have missed, including Teams, Planner, OneDrive, Yammer, and Exchange. And preparation for GDPR…
Teams is one of Microsoft’s hubs for teamwork within Office 365. People work with documents all the time and the documents are in SharePoint Online libraries. However, Teams imposes its own view of documents and omits some of the functionality available through the SharePoint browser interface. This doesn’t seem to matter very much, except in the case of data governance.
The new Office 365 data governance framework has been updated to allow content marked with classification labels to receive a manual review before being removed. It’s the kind of thing that makes data governance administrators happy.
As part of the Office 365 data governance framework, tenants can now create retention policies that apply to the mailbox and team site belonging to Office 365 Groups. The process is quite straightforward, but some gotchas exist that you need to think about!
Office 365 now boasts a new data governance framework to provide compliance coverage across multiple workloads. The new framework covers Exchange, SharePoint OneDrive for Business, Skype for Business, and Office 365 Groups. It is a big step forward for tenants that have been waiting for Microsoft to deliver common compliance processing across the full service.
Tony Redmond explores some things he found out or explored during the week, including a solid DLP roadmap for Office 365, how BMC Remedy creates incident tickets from DLP audit events, that Veeam now offers a backup for Exchange Online, how QUADROtech’s ADAM plans to drag public folders into the 21st century, and more.
