M365 Changelog: eDiscovery support now available for Microsoft Loop Components created from Teams and Outlook via Microsoft Purview

MC534304 – Loop components

Microsoft Loop components created in Teams or Outlook are now discoverable and have eDiscovery workflow support using the Microsoft Purview tool. These files are stored in the creator’s OneDrive for Business and are available for search and collection and render in review for both eDiscovery (Standard) and eDiscovery (Premium). The HTML offline export format is supported on eDiscovery (Premium). You can also download and re-upload the files to any OneDrive for Business to view them in their native format.

Microsoft is currently working on a third-party export API solution for Loop components.

Loop app

The Microsoft Loop app and content created from within the Loop app does NOT yet support eDiscovery workflows. This capability update only applies to Loop components created in Teams or Outlook.

When this will happen:

This capability has already been rolled out to your enterprise tenant. 

How this will affect your organization:

The eDiscovery review and export flow in Microsoft Purview was not available for Microsoft Loop components, and now it is available.

What you need to do to prepare:

If you have previously disabled Microsoft Loop components on your tenant and wish to enable them now, please follow the instructions here.
