Is excluding Microsoft application from real time scanning files (local/network) possible?

Hi, our macOS users are experiencing the serious slowness to open and load PowerPoint slides saved on Sharepoint / One Drive on their desktop PowerPoint application.

Sometimes the application gets frozen and need to force quit.

We identified that real time scanning of Sophos EP is causing this slowness after turning off functions one by one temporary on the machine.

Now the question is, is it possible to disable real time scanning for specific application with Sophos EP on macOS?

We know we can disable it from the policy, but we would like to minimize the scope of exclusion if possible.
