In this week’s M365 newsletter, I was reminded, yet again, of why a testing program is essential. I went in expecting to confirm what I had seen earlier in testing and had confirmed by various other sources, including Microsoft’s own documentation, about Loop workspaces.
As I ran the tests to grab the screenshots an interesting thing happened though. It had changed. What the documentation said was not what I was seeing in my tests.
This feature highlights one of the difficult things about M365 and eDiscovery, Records Management, Security, etc. The infrastructure is ever-changing, and even Microsoft’s own documentation cannot keep up, especially with a feature that is in Preview. That’s why I highly recommend that anyone tasked with working with M365 Purview make use of whatever resources they can get their hands on. In the last couple of months, I’ve offered paid and free subscriptions to my own findings in newsletter form. Now that there is a little bit of a backlog over there, I hope you’ll check it out and consider subscribing.
You can sign up for a 7-day trial and see all of the paywalled content to see what you’d be getting for your $7 per month subscription. If you’ve been impacted by layoffs, I want to make an offer to you, as someone who’s right there with you. Sign up for a free subscription, and send me an email with your LinkedIn Profile link so I can verify that you have been impacted by layoffs, and I’ll comp you 90 days of a paid subscription. I know first-hand how difficult it can be to stay in the loop on M365 Purview when you’re not in a commercial environment, and I want to help.
For the rest of you, I hope you’ll consider subscribing, as a free or paid subscriber. I promise that even free subscribers will get a ton of information, you just aren’t going to get all of the details of testing. Frankly, that’s a lot of work, and I’d like to think that level of testing is worth something to you. 😉
Watch that space as well, as Substack has started offering referral rewards, and I’m going to start offering my free subscribers a comped 30-90 day paid subscription for referring their friends to the newsletter. I’ll be sending an email with details to all subscribers in the next couple of days.
I hope you’ll join us in testing and discussing all things M365 Purview and eDiscovery. There’s quite a lot going on. I’ll have a new issue, the monthly news recap for all subscribers, on Monday, so sign up today!
