MC387639: Microsoft Purview Information Protection: Maintain protection when creating PDFs (preview)

When this will happen

Public preview: rollout will begin in late June and is expected to be complete by mid-August (previously late July).

How this will affect your organization

Labels and protection applied on Office documents will be persisted to the output file when converting to PDF in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on PCs using File|SaveAs, File|Export, and File|Share Office add-ins.

What you need to do to prepare

To enable users to label PDFs created in Office, admins can create sensitivity labels and define policies and settings in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal.

To try this functionality in a test tenant and provide early feedback to Microsoft, we invite you to join a limited private preview. Sign up at https://aka.ms/MIP/PreviewRing.
