Sometimes the updates can vary from desktop to mobile and web apps, so be sure to check out all the updates on the official Microsoft Office 365 support page, but here are some the notable updates from the past thirty days:

  • Task Board Cards
    Microsoft Project allows for comprehensive planning of all your team projects. Now, when the title alone doesn’t explain as much as you need your team to understand, you can customize and add additional details to the task board cards. This creates quicker understanding and less back-and-forth.
  • New Forwarding Options in Outlook
    For times when you want to keep a meeting to a certain group of people, you now have the ability to turn off the ability to forward meetings to others. You can find this in the “Response Options” and learn more by visiting the official Microsoft instruction and tutorial.
  • Building a Word Document from Shapes
    In a unique interface between Visio and Word, you can now automatically add diagram content, including shapes and metadata, into a Word document. This “Export to Word” feature is in Preview Mode, so go check out it’s functionality. This feature will bring together more disparate groups that utilize various programs for different reasons. Visit the Microsoft tutorial for more information and use case examples.
  • New Icons in Visio
    Simple icons can bring life and understanding to any piece of collateral. To this end, there are now 26 new icons to utilize in Visio. From analytics and business icons to sports, faces, arts and celebration themes, you can sharpen any message with the graphic help of Microsoft Visio updates.
