We are one week into the new month, and as we wrap it up we’ll recap some of the key features that Microsoft announced as coming to Microsoft 365. Here’s everything you need to know:

OneNote In-App Support Feature in Win32

The OneNote in-app support feature allows users facing issues with their Windows client to report the issue to the support team within the app. This will hasten the response rate and promote efficiency.

Microsoft has indicated that the feature is expected to begin rolling out towards the end of this month and reach general availability by mid-March.

Schedule Send Suggestions Available in Microsoft Teams Chat

According to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the company is working on a new feature tagged 98159 that will allow users to see schedule send suggestions that enable postponing message delivery when composing a 1:1 chat message in Teams till the user clocks in at work officially.

“With schedule send suggestions for chat turned on, users with Viva Insights subscriptions can get an unlimited number of scheduling suggestions for postponing message delivery to their coworkers.
With schedule send suggestions for chat turned off, users will not get any schedule send suggestions.” says Microsoft.

The feature has already started rolling out to some users and is expected to ship to general availability by late March.

Delete or rename files in a channel and in your OneDrive folder in Teams

Microsoft has plans underway to release a new feature that allows you to rename or delete a file in a channel by simply heading to the files tab and then selecting the one you want, and finally clicking on the ellipses for More options. The same can also be replicated when you want to delete or rename a file from your OneDrive.

The feature is already in the rollout phase and is expected to hit broad availability mid-this month.

Visio Personal App in Teams

Microsoft announced that it will be incorporating Visio as a Teams Personal App soon. The feature tagged 109596 in the Microsoft 365 Roadmap will not alter how you open files. It will add new capabilities such as the ability to pin the app to the app bar for easy entry point, app home page to navigate documents, as well as view, recommended files, and more.

It should also be noted that this release will also feature several enhancements to the Office ribbon in Teams to make the experience seamless with Office for the web. Microsoft has already started rolling out the app to some users and is expected to hit general availability by mid-April 2023.

That’s it for this week folks! We also invite you to check out last week’s recap in case you missed it. Let us know which feature you are looking forward to most below.
