From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC316145 · Published Jan 19, 2022

Message Summary

Out of Box filters “File Type” and “Last Modified” will be getting an UI upgrade. From the right side panel these filters move in line with Search Results on top of the results list. This helps users discover and use these out of box filters easily.

Filters can also be defined on Custom verticals. Custom filters can be defined on datetime and string, refinable properties.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 57054.

When this will happen:

This rollout is expected to begin in mid-January and be completed by late January.

How this will affect your organization:

End users will have more functionality with out of box filters. They will also be able to see new custom filters defined on custom verticals by admins.

  • Admins will get a “Filters” step enabled in the Verticals wizard to configure custom filters on custom verticals.
