We will be adding new content scenarios to the My Feed Web Part on SharePoint. The update will come with the following features.

  • Suggested Task
    • These are tasks or actions you have requested by or of you. They also may be tasks or actions you promise to do. These tasks are pulled from your email conversations.
  • People Highlights
    • These comprise of Birthdays, Work Anniversaries and Change of roles for people who you work with. The information is only visible for those who have chosen to share it on LinkedIn.
  • Meetings out of routine
    • These are meetings scheduled on Teams or Outlook and are out of your usual working hours. This allows your users to either request for a reschedule or act on the meetings as appropriate.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82172.

When this will happen:

We expect this rollout to begin mid-January and expect the rollout to be completed by late January 2022.

How this will affect your Organization:
