Notification recipients in the tenant should receive an e-mail before a preview environment gets deleted to avoid loss of data. Maybe some users could save data in these preview environments, so tenant administrators should be warned in order to warn the users that the data will be deleted.

This e-mail notification to the recipients should be sent, at least, 3 days before elimination of data.

Thank you for your feedback. Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future. 

Please note that we communicate that the Preview environments will be removed 30 days after the official release date in the confirmation dialogue, when you create an environment via the Admin Center, and in the Preview documentation:

This is extremely useful! Preview is used to test functionality and setup of Data! sometimes we forget the Deletion period of 30days so a 5 day pre-warning would be ideal!
