MC234256 – Updated February 19, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

This feature update does not apply to EDU tenants.

advertisment

We are updating how the Teams channel header displays hierarchical sensitivity labels to provide improved exposure to the confidentiality status of content in a channel.

Key points

  • Timing: mid-March (previously mid-February) through mid-April (previously end of March)
  • Roll-out: tenant level
  • Action: review and assess (or other)

How this will affect your organization

Currently, the Teams channel header displays the child label for hierarchical sensitivity labels (e.g., Confidential > Finance) in the channel header. We will now display the parent label rather than the child label. In this example, Confidential > Finance, we will display Confidential in the channel header rather than Finance.

advertisment

This will provide improved exposure to confidentiality status of content in the channel.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this updated feature and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
