I have Microsoft 365 Business. When I go to the Compliance center and click on Supervision, it works fine but I see this message at the top:


"Good news! Communication compliance is now available in the Microsoft 365 compliance center. We recommend using this solution moving forward to take advantage of richer capabilities, including customizable policy templates, flexible remediation workflows, and more."


If I click Try it out now, I'm taken to a free trial MS 365 E5 Compliance Trial page to try it for 1 month.


According to the documentation: "The supervision solution in Office 365 will be fully replaced by the communication compliance solution in Microsoft 365."


So now I have Supervision but once it's fully replaced, I won't have anything unless I upgrade to E5??

@Kurt DeLanoy Supervision has the following licensing requirements: 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/configure-supervision-policies?view=o365-w...

Users monitored by supervision policies must have a Microsoft 365 E5 Compliance license, an Office 365 Enterprise E3 license with the Advanced Compliance add-on, or be included in an Office 365 Enterprise E5 subscription, or be included in a Microsoft 365 E5 subscription. If you don't have an existing Enterprise E5 plan and want to try supervision, you can sign up for a trial of Office 365 Enterprise E5.

 

Communication Compliance which includes key new value and recently launched (see

http://aka.ms/CommunicationComplianceGA)  also has licensing requirements as you noticed.

I probably have access to the feature in O365 because I do have a couple O365E3 licenses.  However, on the M365 side, I only have M365 Business licenses.
