New Feature: SharePoint Auto Digest Email

From Microsoft Corporation

MC215356, Plan For Change, Published date: Jun 5, 2020

Major update: AnnouncementApplies To: All

SharePoint Auto-News Digest sends automated email to users in your company about the latest News posts that they have not yet read. Using Microsoft intelligence, a curated selection of News posts are shared with users through an email that comes from SharePoint. This is a great way for users to catch up on News that they may have otherwise missed. Only published news posts are sent in the digest, and users will have access to all the news posts that they are sent so rest assured that users won’t see news that they don’t have permission to see. If users want to opt-out of receiving the Auto-News Digest, they can click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email.

Key Points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 64685
  • Timing: Targeted release customers in mid-June and complete for all customers by early August.
  • Roll-out: User level roll-out
  • Control Type: User control

How this will affect your organization

Users will start to receive a weekly mail from SharePoint Online containing news that that they have not yet read based on sites that they are following.

If users are not happy with the emails, they can unsubscribe from the email by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
