This course is intended for those who wish to learn how to use and manage auditing and eDiscovery in Microsoft 365.
To get the most out of this course, you should already have some basic experience of working with Microsoft 365.
Welcome back! So now that you have an idea of what has to happen BEFORE you create a Core eDiscovery case, let’s quickly walk through the steps for creating a case. I’m not going to do a full demo here, because the process of creating a case is pretty straightforward. I really don’t think a full demo is necessary, so…
To create a Core eDiscovery case, you need to browse to the Microsoft 365 Compliance pane. This can be found at https://compliance.microsoft.com. You’ll need to sign with a user account that’s been assigned the appropriate eDiscovery permissions. We talked about these permissions earlier.
Clicking “Show All” in the left navigation pane of the Microsoft 365 compliance center reveals the eDiscovery dropdown.
Click the “Core” option, under eDiscovery, to open the Core eDiscovery page.
The Core eDiscovery page shows all existing Core eDiscovery cases, and allows you to create a new case. To create a new case, click +Create a Case. On the New case flyout page, provide a name for your new case, an optional case number, and an optional description. The case name that you supply needs to be unique within your organization.
You can then click Save, to create your case.
Once you’ve created your case, it’s displayed on the Core eDiscovery page. You can manage your case by clicking on it to reveal the management blade.
You’d use the management blade to manage members, role groups, and the status. Later on, we’ll walk through an actual demo of how to create an Advanced eDiscovery case, since an advanced case involves a bit more stuff.
