Did you know: Your ability to apply sensitivity labels to Microsoft Teams sites, Microsoft 365 groups (formerly Office 365 groups), and SharePoint sites is moving out of public preview into general availability

Did you know: Your ability to apply sensitivity labels to Microsoft Teams sites, Microsoft 365 groups (formerly Office 365 groups), and SharePoint sites is moving out of public preview into general availability. This extends the protection options we announced in May, when sensitivity label protection for Office files in SharePoint and OneDrive became generally available.

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this out in late June and expect the rollout to be complete in early July.

How this affects your organization

When you create sensitivity labels in the Microsoft 365 compliance center, you can now apply them to the following containers: Microsoft Teams sites, Microsoft 365 groups (formerly Office 365 groups), and SharePoint sites. Use the following label settings to help apply the following policies:

  • Access from unmanaged devices
  • External user access
  • Privacy (public or private) of Microsoft 365 group-connected Teams sites

The following apps and services support the new sensitivity labels for Microsoft 365 groups:

  • Admin centers:
    – Azure Active Directory(AAD)
    – Security & Compliance
    – SharePoint
  • Forms
  • Outlook
    – Outlook desktop app for Windows
    – Outlook for the Mac
    – Outlook for the web
    – Outlook mobile app for Android and iOS
  • SharePoint
  • Stream
  • Teams

The following apps and services do not support the new sensitivity labels for Microsoft 365 groups:

  • Admin centers:
    – Exchange
    – Microsoft365
    – Teams
  • Dynamics 365
  • Planner
  • Power BI
  • Project
  • Yammer

What you need to do to prepare

This is an opt-in feature. A global or SharePoint admin must enable it using PowerShell

  • If you have already enabled the feature, Microsoft will honor that setting.
