Office Insider for Windows Version 1907 (Build 11819.20002) available.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Visio

New features:

Recommended documents

When collaborating with others, it can be hard to stay on top of recent activity that has happened on shared documents, and hard to know which documents to pay attention to. The Recommended Document list puts the most relevant documents front-and-center when you start Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Visio,, and highlights the most important activity that has occurred on each of those documents.

How to enable:

  1. Sign in with an Org ID;
  2. If you have opened files stored on SharePoint or have had files stored on SharePoint shared with you, recommended documents will be available on the Start page.

Scenarios to try:

  • Start Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Visio, and on the Start Page, click on a Recommended document (after ensuring you meet the criteria outlined in the How to enable section above);
  • Have someone else try the following actions on documents you work on, and watch that activity be noted in a Recommended Document card: leave a comment, reply to a comment, share a document, @mention you in a comment.

Outlook

New features:

Get location suggestions

Start typing in the Location field when scheduling appointments and meetings, and Outlook will suggest rooms, addresses, and other recent places. Also note that when you add a public location with a street address to a calendar item, you can receive Time to Leave notifications for those eventsin Outlook on your mobile device.

How to enable:

  1. Create an appointment or meeting in an Office 365 or Outlook.com calendar in Outlook for Windows;
  2. Click in the Location field and start typing.

Scenarios to try:

  • When adding a conference room to a meeting, click into Location field, rather than using the Room Finder add-in or Address Book;
  • For appointments at a public place with a street address – like a restaurant, coffee shop, or even your dentist’s office – try finding the exact location using the new picker. This way, you’ll also get notified on your mobile device when it’s time to leave.

Notable fixes:

  • We fixed an issue which could change the free/busy status of an appointment when converted to a meeting;
  • We fixed an issue where the wrong template and description would be displayed when an email was protected with an ad-hoc template.

Word

Notable fixes:

  • We fixed an issue which could prevent some .DOC files from opening;
  • We fixed an issue which could have prevented comments from loading properly.

PowerPoint

Notable fixes:

  • We fixed an issue related to using a pen on a Surface device which could cause the screen to flicker.
