  • Microsoft 365 compliance center: Microsoft Purview | eDiscovery (Premium) – Discover only the document version that has been shared – Many customers often consider shared documents or cloud attachments as a form of communication, and therefore are required to preserve and make that content discoverable.

To help customers efficiently meet their regulatory obligations for discovery, eDiscovery (Premium) plans to support the ability to discover the version of the document at the time that it was shared. This helps ensure that the correct document information is available to eDiscovery processes. Roadmap ID:70718
