What can Office 365 (O365) do that differs from MS Office? What are the similarities between the two? Join us to get answers to these questions and more. Learn how organizations are using O365 for ediscovery, how it puts a hold on data and what types of data it can put a hold on vs. what may be excluded. What needs special attention? Will it maintain metadata?

How do you collect data in O365? Learn about searches and other possible methods for locating documents, whether it will search non-searchable docs (e.g., non-searchable PDFs), what reporting features are available and if there is a way to index everything. Will O365 collect all relevant docs? Will it preserve email chains?

How does O365 export data if corporate clients are giving the data to outside counsel? Learn what outside counsel should be aware of when assisting a client with Office 365, and what the different O365 models are capable of.

We'll also cover future plans for Office 365 related to ediscovery.
