When this will happen

Rollout will begin in early November and is expected to be complete by early December 2021.

How this will affect your organization

Available as an option in the Communication Compliance policy setup, the Discrimination trainable classifier aims to detect and triage explicit discriminatory language. You can select this classifier as a condition for matching content in Microsoft Teams chat or emails, for instance, in both new or existing Communication Compliance policies.

What you need to do to prepare

To make use of the new classifier, admins will need to explicitly configure a Communication Compliance policy and select the Discrimination trainable classifier as a condition to detect content matches.

From within the Communication Compliance solution in the Microsoft 365 compliance center, select a policy leveraging trainable classifiers and click on “Report as misclassified“. Resolving the item as misclassified sends message content, attachments, and the message subject (including metadata) to Microsoft to help improve trainable classifiers.

By default, global administrators do not have access to Communication Compliance features. To enable permissions for Communication Compliance features, see Make Communication Compliance available in your organization.

You might want to notify appropriate users about these new capabilities and update your training and documentation as needed.
