Updated November 15, 2022: We have determined that this message did not reach the appropriate audience. Please disregard this message. Thank you for your patience.
We're making some changes to how Microsoft 365 Apps choose between the built-in client for sensitivity labels and the legacy Azure Information Protection (AIP) Add-in.

Starting with version 2211 in Office Current Channel and Monthly Enterprise Channel, all users of this add-in will be migrated to the modern, built-in interface for sensitivity labels in Office. This will simplify admin configuration of sensitivity labels for Office documents and substantially improve end-user productivity from improvements to performance. For users who need to continue using the AIP Add-in during its support lifecycle, you need to deploy a new configuration for Office to explicitly allow the AIP Add-in to be used for viewing and applying labels in Office.
Beginning October 15, 2022, the new configuration setting will be available for you to deploy via group policy or cloud policy. Use this to configure an exception to allow the AIP Add-in to continue providing sensitivity labels. For users in the Insider Beta channel of Office, the AIP Add-in will be automatically disabled by default.
