  1. Tracking without protection

    I can really se the need for tracking a document without protecting it. Everyone can freely share this document but I can track who and when it is used. Could be based on a signature instead of encryption.

    (Note: the original feature request was called Tracking without Encryption, but this can't be possible as without encryption anyone can open the content even without a connection, and thus tracking would yield extremely unreliable results, so we redefined it as Tracking Without Protection)

      The All Authenticated users feature allows for tracking without protection. Of course, tracking without encryption is not possible since if it’s not encrypted no license is required for accessing the content and thus there can’t be tracking, but the feature currently in preview should meet the same need. I’m renaming the feature request to reflect this reality.

        Manual labeling is available in preview for Word and PowerPoint in the Office Insider Build 16.0.11029.20010 or newer for Android. Sign up to Office insiders and enable Unified Labeling as per the guidance here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/Office365/SecurityCompliance/sensitivity-labels
        If using AIP already you will need to enable synchronization of the labels from the AIP portal to SCC: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/configure-policy-migrate-labels
        Support in additional applications in additional platforms (e.g. iOS) will be added to this preview in the near future.

              Please note AIP labels are now available in the public preview of the Security and Compliance Center labeling capabilities.
              https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Security-Privacy-and-Compliance/Announcing-the-availability-of-unified-labeling-management-in/ba-p/262492
              The DLP capabilities in SCC can leverage MIP labels, which can be synchronized from the AIP portal using the steps described here:
              https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/configure-policy-migrate-labels
              Also note that SharePoint DLP is not yet integrated with these labels, works towards a preview of that functionality is still ongoing.

              • Allow "Everyone" or Wildcard to assign rights to a document

                It would be handy for some documents if you could define a wildcard scope or everyone to view a document (with or without an expiration date) while you give for example co-author rights to all tenant users.
                This could be usefull for some types of information for example safety sheets that you want everyone to be able to read but to make sure the latest version is used.

                • Support Recommended classification in Outlook

                  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/information-protection/deploy-use/configure-policy-classification
                  Recommended classification is currently not supported in Outlook. It may not need to run continuously in the background like Word or Excel, but would be good to at least Recommend when the user hit Send

                  • Automatically remove redundant footers upon application of content markings

                    Many organizations have standard document templates with footers or headers including phrases like "Contoso Confidential" or other standard text. When AIP applies content marking in the form of a footer, these texts become redundant and in many cases visually overlap. AIP should offer the ability to detect boxes with specific text and remove them when applying content markings.
