What you should know
- For commercial and education customers, Microsoft just released an upgrade for Office.com and the Office app for Windows.
- The redesigned Office Home page has a Quick Access area and adjustable filters to assist you in finding specific material.
- Attachments, meeting recordings, and other information from throughout the Office suite can now be found using the Browse by section in Office.
For corporate and education customers, Microsoft Office.com and the Office app for Windows have been updated. Regardless of which Office app was used to create the content, the upgrade intends to make it easier to find it. Both the Office app and Office.com have a new Home screen with a Quick Access area and a new My Content pane that displays files from throughout the Office suite.
A new Create window has been added to Office, which works with all of the Office programs. You may now produce material like Word documents and PowerPoint presentations using a new template tool. The template tool, like the rest of the redesigned experience, focuses on assisting users in creating content rather than discussing which Office app to use.
“Simply choose the type of content you want to create, and you’ll be provided with multiple template alternatives across multiple apps all at once, allowing you to choose the ideal option for you,” Microsoft noted in its release article.
The new experience was initially showed out at Microsoft’s Ignite conference in November 2021. It is now being rolled out to customers in the business and education sectors. Microsoft aims to implement similar adjustments for personal Microsoft accounts “in the coming months,” according to the company.
The Office team has prepared a new film showcasing the enhanced Office experience, as they often do when new features are released.
