MC343795 (Updated) Pin shared libraries to Quick Access & Recent document libraries list in OneDrive for Business End users will be able to pin document libraries to the Quick Access section in the left nav of their OneDrive, using the “Pin to Quick Access” command for document libraries within OneDrive and SharePoint. Pinning a document library will add it to the top of Quick Access section. Users will be able to un-pin the document libraries from the Quick Access section as well. This command will only appear at the document library level and will not be available when you navigate into a folder or subfolder in a site.

End users will see a Recent list of document libraries that have been recently used in the OneDrive left nav and “More places” page. While we expect that this will be a more predictable and easy-to-understand list in the long term, end users may be confused when the list of Teams & Sites in the left nav changes.

To minimize the disruption to your organization, we recommend that end users pin any missing places that they regularly use to their Quick Access section. End users can access the teams & sites which were formerly available in the OneDrive left nav from the Frequent list in SharePoint Home, and use the “Pin to Quick Access” command to ensure that these sites will appear in their OneDrive left nav.

MC274188 (Updated) Teams Meeting Recordings Auto-Expiration in OneDrive and SharePoint Updated April 29, 2022: We have begun rolling this out and will be monitoring customer reported issues to ensure a smooth deployment.

To ensure the best experience we have postponed the start of final stage of this change until late March. The final stage is the part of the feature that actually stamps the expiration date on the file and physically deletes the file based on that stamped expiration date.

For any tenant that does not have a custom policy in place already, we are updating the default expiration days from 60 to 120 days. We are making this update based on new statistics that show on average across all tenants, less than 1% of recordings are watching after 120 vs 5% after 60 days.

As a reminder if you want to override the default setting you can do so in the Teams Admin center or by setting NewMeetingRecordingExpirationDays in PowerShell.

Why are you delaying this rollout?

As part of this change, we are deleting files, and we want to ensure we spend adequate time in our testing and early adopter environments. We have therefore decided to delay the production rollout of the portion of this feature that stamps expiration dates on the file and deletes the file based on that expiration date.

How come I can set and see the expiration policy but do not see the expiration set on the files?

We rolled out the ability for the tenant admin to define the default expiration days to allow them to preemptively define the default behavior before we roll out the actual expiration stamping and execution.

How will I know when this feature is fully rolled out to my tenant?

We will provide another update to the message center post when we are actively deploying to production tenants. Users will be informed about pending expirations via a notification in the Teams chat window when the video pops into the chat at the end of the recording session (see picture below). If you want to preemptively inform your users about this feature, you can tell them they will see this message when the feature is rolled out, or you can wait for the message center update in March 2022.

As part of the evolution of the new Stream (built on SharePoint), we are introducing the meeting recording auto-expiration feature, which will automatically delete Teams recording files stored in OneDrive or SharePoint after a preset period of time. Admins can disable this feature if desired.

We are making this change based on customer feedback, where the overall consensus was to allow admins to opt in to receive these emails.

MC358962 (Updated) Temporarily disable Viva Connections First Run Experience in the Desktop experience Currently, when users log into Viva Connections from the rich Teams desktop client or Teams web client, they are presented with a multi-panel first run experience informing them about Viva Connections and its features. We have discovered instances where a user might see this experience repeatedly, even if they had seen it before.

The team is hence disabling this experience from the Viva Connections app for desktop users only while we improve this experience. We will re-enable it in the future and will communicate when it is ready again.

[When this will happen:]

This change is expected to take place starting mid-April and expected to complete by mid-May.

MC361750 (Updated) MyAnalytics dashboard and Briefing email settings changes The Config Settings page in the MyAnalytics dashboard allows users to customize working hours, set up focus plan, set quiet hours, set up delay delivery, and, when applicable, configure their team. The Config Settings page will be replaced by the Settings page, which has settings for the daily Briefing email in addition to the existing controls.

Upcoming Settings page changes:

Access to select settings will be extended to all users that have licenses with the Exchange Online service plan.

The page will undergo a design change to enhance usability and navigation for all users.

Microsoft Viva Briefing email settings will be relocated to the MyAnalytics dashboard, so users will be redirected to the MyAnalytics Settings page to change those settings. However, Briefing will continue to have no dependencies on MyAnalytics.

This will roll out on Web, Mobile, iOS, Android, Mac.

MC375740 (Updated) Bookings with me in Outlook Updated May 13, 2022: We have updated the post for clarity. Thank you for your patience.

Bookings in Outlook is coming to help you reduce the back and forth in scheduling, while helping you maintain control of your calendar. You'll be able to create custom meeting types to share with others so they can easily find a time to schedule a 1:1 meeting with you according to your availability and preferences.

Attendees can update or cancel scheduled meetings with you directly from your personal bookings page. Bookings in Outlook will roll out as a preview version, and you will get a new communication when it becomes GA. While Microsoft Bookings is designed for group and team scheduling, Bookings in Outlook is meant only for the owner of the mailbox and is based only on their preferences and availability.
