MC295027 (Updated) Rich text and images in Planner task notes To support this capability, we are introducing a new rich text enabled task notes field in the Planner Microsoft Graph API. This will result in two task notes fields in our API – the new “rich text task notes field” and the existing “plain text task notes field.” When this feature launches, Planner for the Web and for Teams (Tasks app) will support rich text in task notes. Other Planner experiences in iOS, Android, SharePoint, and Power Automate will only support plain text task notes, but we plan to update these apps to support rich text at a later date.

When this feature update is deployed, all existing task notes content will be preserved in the new rich text enabled task notes field, so users will be able to continue viewing and editing notes without interruption.

We will maintain compatibility between the rich text task notes field and plain text task notes field by ensuring both fields’ contents stay in sync.

If a user edits the rich text task notes field, all content is synced to the plain text task notes field automatically. Any rich content is converted to plain text and synced to the plain text task notes field.

If a user edits the plain text task notes field via the Microsoft Graph API or via a client which only supports the plain text field, the contents in the plain text task notes field is synced to the rich text task notes field without modification. Therefore edits to the plain text task notes field will result in the removal of any pre-existing rich text, text formatting, or images in the rich text notes field.

If a user chooses to insert images in the rich text task notes field, a preview of the image will appear in the task notes field. End users should not see any interruption in their Planner experiences. They can continue using task notes as they do today but gain the ability to insert rich text and view image previews in task notes if desired (for Planner experiences which support it).

MC430100 (Updated) Meeting effectiveness surveys and plans coming in the Microsoft Viva Insights app in Teams Meeting effectiveness surveys offer a new way to provide feedback to meeting organizers and help improve future meetings. The surveys are displayed at the end of select meetings in Teams with 5+ attendees and feature the following questions:

1) What made the meeting a success (with agenda, focused discussions, attendee participation and clear next steps as choices to choose from).

2) What would have made it better (with agenda, focused discussions, attendee participation and clear next steps as choices to choose from).

3) How effective was the meeting at achieving its business goals (answered with a star rating).

UX for Meeting effectiveness surveys – sample attendees survey:

Organizer view on the Effective meetings tab:

Meeting organizers with Viva Insights subscriptions can see aggregated results in the Viva Insights app in Teams - including an aggregated view of the star rating response and access to individual but anonymous meeting feedback. Organizers also gain insights around how their meetings succeeded and how they can be improved. Meeting Effectiveness surveys are turned on by default for all users. Administrators have the option to turn it off for their entire organization or enable it for just a specific set of users within their organization. Organizers also have an option to turn off meeting effectiveness surveys using the effective meetings plan feature.

Effective meeting plans are shared plans that users with Viva Insights subscriptions can set up for themselves and their colleagues to promote healthy meeting norms. The meeting plan can be customized in the following ways to automate research-backed meeting best practices:

1) Automatically shorten duration of all meetings (start late or end early) to take a breather between back-to-back meetings to promote team wellbeing.

2) Automatically include a Microsoft Teams meeting link to all your meetings to promote inclusion of in-person and remote attendees.

3) Get feedback from your meeting participants through meeting effectiveness surveys.

UX flow for meeting effectiveness plan:

1) To create a shared meeting plan, navigate to the MEP feature by clicking on shared meeting plan on the far right corner on the effective meetings tab in VITA insights.

2) Clicking on get started, takes us to a description of what the feature entails

3) Get started lets us customize our meeting norms using the options discussed above.

4) Step 2 is sharing our meeting norms with colleagues. We auto populate this form with frequently met users when there is sufficient meetings datnsp;

5) Once done, we can navigate back to your meeting plan by clicking on edit on your shared meeting plan.

6) When you are part of a plan, you are able to leave a plan or make changes to the plan. Until we make changes or leave a plan, these settings take effect in all of our meetings.

MC405984 (Updated) Site Limits for SharePoint Lists, Libraries, and Subsites SharePoint recommends a maximum of 2,000 lists and libraries per site, and 2,000 subsites per site. These have been long standing limits for SharePoint but have not been formally enforced.

There have been cases where some sites exceeded these limits, resulting in poor site performance and low-quality viewing experience. One of the most impacted areas is the API performance that degrades significantly when users access data on the sites that exceed their recommended limits. The API calls may time out or get throttled, blocking the users from opening the site or resulting in unexpected failures. In some extreme cases, the issue can impact functionalities beyond these sites.

To ensure site performance and help customers have the best possible experience, Microsoft will implement a safeguard to prevent customers from exceeding these limits.

[When will this happen:]

The enforcement of the limits will start in early November and will be completely enforced by late December.
