Is it possible to have AIP policy applied for Word Online created docs?

Brass Contributor



I`ve checked on my tenant but cannot find so far option to have AIP for documents created using Word Online. 


Therefore, would like to know if any option?

Office Online is currently not supported by AIP:


"...There are a few limitations with the current release, which include the following:

  • No labeling ability in the Office web apps (Office Online)..."

Understand it is not supported now. When it will be supported?

 Office Online: Manual sensitivity labeling in Word, PowerPoint, Excel


Ability to manually apply Microsoft Information Protection sensitivity labels within the Office 365 versions of the Office Online apps - Word, PowerPoint and Excel.




This is also worth knowing about: Azure Information Protection unified labeling client, due at around the same time:
