Microsoft has released a new version of Office preview to Insider testers, featuring several new features for Outlook and PowerPoint components. When the update is complete, the build number of Office for Windows 2004 will be upgraded to 12711.20000. The official change log begins with a visual refresh of the calendar module of the Outlook software.
“Last year, we brought you a refreshing email experience,” Microsoft said. This year, it’s finally the calendar part. While it looks fresh, it’s a familiar calendar, and older users can join and increase productivity right away.”
Outlook offers more options to help protect data in groups, such as users applysensitive tags to email, documents, and team sites when creating groups.
PowerPoint brings new options to update slides modified by other authors during the presentation.
Word fixes bugs that cannot be commented on in a document. and in some cases, the issue where the digital signature of the document sent by the message was removed (the standard behavior has now been restored).
Outlook also fixes a search for the address book, and if the user uses a custom path, the resolution scope will be limited to this, not the global address list (GAL).
Finally, after a few weeks of Insider tester evaluation, the preview feature of Office for Windows 2004 is also expected to be pushed to all users.
