Office 365 / SharePoint – Overview of eDiscovery across the Office Platform

Today, at the SharePoint Conference 2012, we talk about eDiscovery within the Office system products.

eDiscovery is how records managers and litigators discover content in electronic format. Typically, eDiscovery requires searching for documents, websites, and email messages spread across laptops, email servers, file servers, and other sources, and collecting and acting on content that meets the criteria for a legal case.

eDiscovery is as easy as:

  2. Query
  3. Export

Across SharePoint, Exchange, Lync and file shares.

To implement an eDiscovery, just create an eDiscovery Set.

>> select the content to be set on hold

Second step, define a search and export query.


eDiscovery processes will work with both OnPremises or Online deployment (including hybrid mode).

Setting up eDiscovery is much more easier than ever.
