Release – June 2022

  • 🆕 SharePoint: SharePoint File Card for Government clouds – You can get quick insights on files before you even open them. When you see a file in OneDrive or SharePoint, point to the file, and then wait for the file card to appear. The file card tells you if a file is popular among your peers, how long it might take to read it, and even show the author key points. If you are working on the file with others, the file card will show you recent activities you haven’t seen yet, a list of viewers and views, and links to places where you referenced the file in email, meetings, or Teams chats. The file card is only visible to people who have access to the file, so the information on the card is just as secure as your files.
