We are excited to announce a streamlined submissions experience in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal (https://security.microsoft.com) which will make your submission process simpler. With streamlined submissions, security teams can view emails, email attachments, URLs, and User Reported messages from a more convenient location under their respective items tab.

 Let’s look at the new unified submissions experience! 

 

 

New entry points to submit items for analysis  

You can find the new submissions portal under Actions & submissions in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal. You can add a new submission (as an admin) from here for emails, email attachments, and URLs, along with viewing the user reported messages.

Tabs you’ll see on the new Submissions page  

The new, streamlined submissions page includes the following tabs: 

  • Emails  
  • Email Attachments  
  • URLs  
  • User reported messages  

 

A Security admin can view the collection of emails that end users have submitted to for review and create a submission to Microsoft if there is a reason to do so.

All other aspects of the submission experience, such as submitting a sample for analysis and viewing the results, remain as it is.
