Items from the MessageCenter in Microsoft 365

Outlook for Windows display name change
Category:Exchange Online Microsoft 365 apps

Starting in July 2024, Microsoft will change the app name of the current Outlook for Windows for all customers as it appears in the Start menu now from “Outlook” to “Outlook (classic)”. This is not a change in status or support for the classic Outlook app. Please continue to refer to our blog post timeline for product support and availability. New Outlook for Windows: A Guide to Product Availability. This change is intended to differentiate it from the new Outlook for Windows. Users will see this update in classic Outlook version 2407 and higher.

This naming convention now also aligns with how it is referred to in support documentation. For instance, at the top of articles like this one on using favorites, there are tabs for different instructions in new Outlook and classic Outlook so users can find the instructions appropriate for the version they are on.

[When this will happen:]

Users will see the new app name in the Start menu after they install version 2407 or later.

  • Current Channel: We will begin rolling out late July 2024 and expect to complete by early August 2024.
  • Monthly Enterprise Channel will get this update September 2024
  • Semi-annual channel will get this update January 2025

[How this will affect your organization:]

This change will only affect the app name as it appears in the Start menu installed apps list and Start pinned apps. The app icon and the executable file name will remain the same.

[What you need to do to prepare:]

There is no action required for administrators to prepare for this change. This change also cannot be configured differently per organization.

Updates available for Microsoft 365 Apps for Current Channel
Category:Microsoft 365 apps

We've released updates to the following update channel for Microsoft 365 Apps:

  • Current Channel

[When this will happen:]

We'll be gradually rolling out this update of Microsoft 365 Apps to users on that update channel starting June 19th, 2024 (PST).

[How this will affect your organization:]

If your Microsoft 365 Apps clients are configured to automatically update from the Office Content Delivery Network (CDN), then no action is required.

If you manage updates directly you can now download this latest update and begin deployment.

[What you need to do to prepare:]

Microsoft Teams: SharePoint News connector retires July 22, 2024
Category:Microsoft Teams

We will be retiring the SharePoint News connector from Microsoft Teams starting July 22, 2024 and ending August 31, 2024. To continue receiving SharePoint team site news notifications in Teams, we recommend using these alternatives, where we will continue to invest our development resources:

Starting July 22, 2024, your users will not be able to create new SharePoint News connectors in any Teams channel. The process of retiring existing SharePoint News connectors will begin on August 26, 2024. After the connectors are retired, users will not receive new post notifications.

[What you need to do to prepare:]

While no admin action is required to implement the retirement, we recommend that you:

  • Notify your users about the upcoming changes.
  • Update any relevant internal documentation to reflect these changes.
  • Guide your end users through the process of determining if they have configured the SharePoint News connector using the detailed, step-by-step guide. Note: our team lacks an automatic way to detect SharePoint news connectors set up in your tenants.
  • Determine the best alternative solutions and share the with your users to ensure a smooth transition.
