Excellent news that FindTime is back.
But before I release on our users, I need to understand what data is being shared and where it is going. Can anyone point me to any resources that may help in this respect? The privacy statement linked from the FindTime website is a generic Microsoft one; I'd like something a bit more specific for this particular service.
Although my O365 tenancy uses EU data centres, I suspect that FindTime will not honour that, and that the service is being served from the states. If someone can disprove this theory, that would be great.
Ideally of course, FindTime should be fully integrated into Outlook, and not be a plugin.

Whoops, forgot to circle back on this. So basically, the reply was that they don't have anything to share at this point, but will look at this for next year.

A couple of months on. Any news on this? Either a statement on where the data is going/stored, or a roadmap that indicates plans for GDPR compliance if it is not already?

OK, so while there are no changes currently (data still stored in NAM in Azure as detailed in the support article), at least we have confirmation that they are working on this. Stay tuned.

So now that Yammer and Whiteboard can store data in Europe it is time for FindTime to offer local data residency to help meet data residency requirements. Any updates on this?
Linking the uservoice item on this as well:

Really would like to be able to use this functionality in a compliant way. Do we think this is ever going to be enabled in EU data centres?

@Joost KoopmansReally pleased to see this announcement today. My only question is how to I know when the change has been made?

We listened to your feedback! We have re-written FindTime's back-end service to now store collected data in the organizer's mailbox! The voting website will now be hosted in Outlook on the web, instead of Azure. No more concerns around the data in FindTime being stored in North America outside of your tenant environment.
