Teams is built on the Microsoft 365 hyper-scale, enterprise-grade cloud, delivering advanced security and compliance capabilities. These capabilities can be managed across Microsoft services including Teams through a single pane of glass experience in Microsoft 365 Security and Compliance centers.
Currently these capabilities are available in Teams for chat and file content. Microsoft is excited to announce that the following Microsoft 365 compliance capabilities will now be available for card content generated through apps in Teams messages in addition to chat and file content:
Legal hold: Preserve card content
eDiscovery: Identify, collect and produce card content in response to an investigation
Timing: begin rolling out mid-January and expect to complete mid-February
Action: review and assess
How this will affect your organization
The above capabilities are built in platform and will be available for all Teams apps including your custom Teams apps. Selecting Teams as a location in the above compliance workflows will now automatically include card content generated through apps from the corresponding Teams conversations including 1:1 chat, 1:many or group chat, or a channel conversation.
Your existing retention policies or legal hold on Teams locations will now automatically include card content generated through apps.
Note: Historic card content generated through apps will not be available in the above compliance workflows. Only card content generated after the time of this release will be available.
