New feature, User impact, Admin impact




For organizations who rely on sensitivity labels from Microsoft Purview to protect their documents, a new feature is rolling out that makes it easier for end users to see or change sensitivity labels for files and emails in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook on PC.
The new sensitivity bar is conveniently located in your document’s name or your email’s subject line, making it easier to stay aware of your content’s sensitivity. This bar provides an at-a-glance, familiar, and actionable indicator of the content’s sensitivity label.
