Do you know you can now upload your improvements actions into the Microsoft Purview Compliance Manager

📢It’s good news for Microsoft Purview Compliance Manager.

You can now bulk import your updated improvement actions directly into Microsoft Purview Compliance Manager using the Improvement actions export report. With no APIs or programmatic interfaces, bulk import is a significant improvement.

Having the ability to work on your improvement actions outside of the Microsoft Purview Admin Center is extremely helpful. You can work on the improvement actions with multiple businesses and IT stakeholders without giving them admin rights. In the past, any changes to improvement actions had to be manually updated in Compliance Manager.

Additionally, keeping the Compliance Manager updated lets you see the impact of changes to regulations or configuration changes via automated testing.
