Finally, External Reviewers in Purview eDiscovery Premium
It's been a topic of conversation for a long time
I don’t know how long it’s been since the first time this came up when discussing eDiscovery Premium, but I know we were talking about it from the Compliance Center in Advanced eDiscovery when it happened, so it was before the Microsoft rebrand.
I’m pretty sure it had already been a topic a few times before that.
The basic idea was that if we could collect all these items into a Review Set using the eDiscovery Premium tool, how could we just have our outside counsel actually review it from there? Understanding that we would still need to export it for it to be part of a production and likely a fuller review in a more robust platform, what would be involved in letting outsiders get an idea of what we were collecting prior to doing all of that work to move it into another platform?
It made sense. I could easily understand the workflow they were suggesting. The problem was that the native eDiscovery tools live in the M365 tenant. Accessing anything collected by them required a user license for that tenant. When it came to IT and Security teams, that was usually a non-starter.
It could be done, but it was inefficient.
Microsoft started promising to deliver on some way for them to access it and it looks like that work is coming to fruition.
This is roadmap item 98093, which has been in preview and is now rolling out. But, how does it work?
