eDJ Brief: Knovos

It has been a while since I caught up with my friend Joe Bartolo. Knovos has evolved from their service provider roots (Capital Novus) into a broad, diverse legal technology company. Despite Relativity’s dominance of the large matter review market, mid-market players like Knovos seem to be gaining traction with usable, focused products that meet specific customer requirements. eDiscovery functionality, performance and innovation can [...]

M365 Core eDiscovery Retires Search by ID List

Microsoft change notice MC291088 announced the retirement of the Core eDiscovery Search by ID List feature because “it is not functioning to an adequate level and creates significant challenges for organizations who depend on consistent and repeatable results for eDiscovery workflows.” That is a remarkably frank statement that this feature was not working consistently. The ‘Search by ID list’ feature was part of the [...]

Disappearing Teams Recordings/Transcripts?

Have your held Teams recordings or transcripts vanished after 21 days? There is an explanation, though I feel like I am stuck in an M365 eDiscovery issue rut. Really, I would like to be writing about more positive topics. This one popped up outside my usual eDiscovery testing while working with a new tech startup that heavily leverages recordings/transcripts for customer research, feature stories [...]

Teams Collections Complications – MC261534

M365 Teams collections are already challenging corporate eDiscovery and provider teams with hidden SharePoint and OneDrive sites. Today’s Major Change Update Notification (MC261534 - reproduced at end for non-admins) covers the June-July roll out of Roadmap ID 81945 that dramatically expands custodian’s ability to associate existing/other Teams sites and automatically create private channel sites. More importantly, non-admin custodians are losing the ability to manually [...]

Teams Transcripts – eDiscovery Gap

Teams transcripts are not currently available in M365 Content Search, eDiscovery or via the Graph API. As previously blogged about, Microsoft is busy consolidating the Microsoft 365 architecture to improve search and other functionality. There are obvious issues with working on the car while your customers are driving it, even when it is the most efficient solution. As of October 2020, the default Teams [...]

Quick Performance Tip for AED2 Processing

A peer with a looming deadline messaged me yesterday to ask if I knew of any way to export Advanced eDiscovery (AED2) collections without processing them into a review set. Despite a vague recollection from the Spring 2021 AED webinar of a MSFT PM saying that a ‘direct to export’ collection feature was on the road map I could not find confirmation. At this [...]

Ongoing M365 Tenant Upgrades/Migrations

Last year I found and published eDiscovery/Content search errors related to Microsoft 365’s ongoing changes to tenant search infrastructure and the new version of Advanced eDiscovery (AED). I have recently encountered similar AED search issues after another way of upgrades was rolled out to new clients. Given the monstrous global scale of corporate M365 adoption, it is entirely possible that this is the same [...]

M365 Advanced eDiscovery Spring Update

Microsoft’s Information & Protection teams are rolling out Advanced eDiscovery(AED) updates at a remarkable rate. The product team’s April 7th webinar and presentation deck has not yet been published, but I wanted to share some perspectives on how these updates may impact AED users. The pandemic has driven E5 license upgrades and features to support remote employees, which makes AED usage more practical for [...]

eDJ Brief: ZyLab ONE

Slowly but surely I am resuming regular briefings with providers. I remember when ZyLab first jumped into the US eDiscovery market with their hybrid archive/investigation tool. Thanks to Scott Hunter for walking me through their most recent release. In my not-always humble opinion, ZyLab always reminded me of Nuix. An innovative, independent architecture paired with a techie GUI that lagged the US market leader’s [...]
