Updated Feature: General Availability, SharePoint and OneDrive support for sensitivity labels with encryption

From Microsoft Corporation

MC212009, Stay Informed, Published date: May 5, 2020

In November 2019, we notified you that we were enabling SharePoint and OneDrive support for sensitivity labels as a public preview (MC194985).

This feature is now available in your tenant.

This change is related to Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 57311. How this affects your organization

Previously, when users applied sensitivity labels that included encryption to Office files stored in SharePoint and OneDrive, the service couldn’t process the content of these files. Consequently, co-authoring, eDiscovery, Data Loss Prevention, search, Delve, and other collaborative features didn’t work.

When you enable this feature, SharePoint and OneDrive will be able to process the content of Office files that have sensitivity labels applied. This allows other features such as co-authoring in web, eDiscovery, Data Loss Prevention, full-text search, to work.  What you need to do to prepare

This is an opt-in feature.
