Updated June 14, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
We’re simplifying the policy management experience and enhancing the user experience for seeing and selecting sensitivity labels within Office apps by enabling display color configuration for labels.
When this will happen:
Public preview: will begin rolling out in mid-July (previously mid-June) and is expected to be complete by mid-August (previously mid-July).
How this will affect your organization:
Built-in labeling in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps (Win 32), and other first- and third-party applications that support reading the color property, will now display a highly visible sensitivity label and provide easy-to-use interface for choosing labels.
This will include label color defined by admins within the Microsoft Purview compliance portal, also supported by a PowerShell advanced setting for a label. To configure label color in the compliance portal, go to label creation in the Information protection left navigation. Then select a color for your parent label in the label creation or edit flow, see below:
What you need to do to prepare:
For built-in labeling to display label colors in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint applications, the label color must first be configured by the admin. You can opt into this preview experience by configuring your label policy to display specific colors for sensitivity labels.
View sensitivity label settings in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal.
