For GDPR, how does Multi-Geo work?

Hi there

For GDPR, how does Multi-Geo work?
- Can we decide on users whose data resides in the EU?
- Can we decide on SharePoint Online site collections/libraries/folders that reside in the EU?

Are there any screenshots, that I can see for the user admin panel?

Thank you.

Hi @frob ,

Yes, you can. To configure Multi-Geo, you can get started from here:
Plan for Microsoft 365 Multi-Geo
Microsoft 365 Multi-Geo tenant configuration
Azure Active Directory Connect sync: Configure preferred data location for Microsoft 365 resources

You can also take a reference to the video in this article to help you understand it better: Now available: Multi-Geo in SharePoint and Office 365 Groups.

Setting up and managing your multi-geo environment is done through the SharePoint admin center.

Hi @AllenXu-MSFT
In my SP Admin, I cannot see any location dropdown (just above the Home button in the left menu).
Am I missing something?

We have a CSP agreement and not an Enterprise Agreement if that makes a difference.

Thank you.

Microsoft 365 Multi-Geo is available as an add-on to the following Microsoft 365 subscription plans for Enterprise Agreement customers with a minimum of 250 Microsoft 365 seats in their tenant, and a minimum of 5% of those seats using multi-geo. User subscription licenses must be on the same Enterprise Agreement as the Multi-Geo Services licenses.

  • Microsoft 365 F1, F3, E3, or E5

  • Office 365 F3, E1, E3, or E5

  • Exchange Online Plan 1 or Plan 2

  • OneDrive for Business Plan 1 or Plan 2

  • SharePoint Online Plan 1 or Plan 2

Hi @AllenXu-MSFT

Got it! Will this allow me to use data residency requirements for the data owned by specific users or the data residing in specific SharePoint sites?

Thank you.

Hi @AllenXu-MSFT

Great! After we have an EA, etc., is there any additional charge for Multi-Geo users? (Or, all is included once we have the EA, etc.?)

Thank you
