Sensitivity labels are an effective way to manage containers like Teams, Microsoft 365 Groups, and SharePoint sites. Microsoft doesn’t provide any way to track changes made to labels assigned to containers, which means that a group owner can downgrade the policy assigned through a label. This article explains a method to detect when label changes occur for containers and how to revert those changes if necessary.
Microsoft currently offers people the opportunity to talk to them about the challenges of managing Microsoft 365 Groups. I spoke to the Groups developers on February 18 and brought five requests to the table from dealing with group creation to cleaning up group debris.
Nearly seven years after the introduction of Office 365 Groups, Microsoft has finally admitted that tenants might just have a problem with “group sprawl.” In other words, tenants have too many underused or unused groups because the groups have been created without oversight and not managed thereafter.
