    The new Office.com gets first major update


    Back in April, we started rolling out a new Office 365 home page experience that provided a redesigned environment for commercial, education and home users to collaborate and work across every device. The update also delivered improved access to recent files and folders and introduced a new platform for faster delivery of innovative features.

    These updates will greatly increase the ease of navigating the apps throughout the suite and help you access your frequent and recently opened documents. These changes started to roll out in December and will continue through early 2017.

    Navigate to apps quickly

    With Office 365 now available in 150 markets, there’s no such thing as a standard user. As we continue to expand the powerful Office 365 suite, we want to ensure each user has uninterrupted access to their favorite applications and services. The Office.com homepage now displays the most frequently used apps more prominently. Over time, Office 365 will learn and adjust this ordering based on your individual usage.



    Get back to your online documents

    We know that your best work can take time, so we improved access to your unfinished documents. Users will now see additional controls within the “Recent documents” list to let users filter by document type across Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Have a document that you go back to frequently? Pin it to the list so it’s always just a click away.



    Know what’s coming up

    We made it easier to see what’s coming up at a glance. Get an in-depth view of the day’s meetings and quickly respond to or join Skype for Business calls with one click. Enhanced people pictures help you build stronger connections with coworkers and help you keep track of your different teams and projects.



    Stay on top of tasks

    Create, view and complete tasks directly on Office.com that stay in sync across Outlook on all your devices. Need to add more details to a task? Double tap to open in Outlook Tasks to add additional details.



    What’s next

    We’re constantly developing and improving the Office 365 experience, so be sure to let us know what you think! We read every piece of feedback that we receive as we work to make your Office 365 experience the best it can be.

    —Tom Batcheler, @TomBatcheler, senior product marketing manager for the Office 365 team
