    Changes to Slow/Fast level names for Office Insider on Windows desktop




    In September 2017, the Office team is simplifying the update model for Office 365 for business. As part of this effort, the name of the Office Insider levels, currently called Insider Fast and Insider Slow, will change. The Insider Fast level name changes to Insider and the Insider Slow level name changes to Monthly Channel (Targeted).

    Do I need to do anything?

    No, you don't. If you get Fast or Slow updates today, you'll continue to receive these updates as usual, on the same schedule. The only thing changing for Office Insiders is the name of the levels.

    If you’re on the Fast level, you’ll see the Insider name today.



    If you’re on the Slow level, you’ll see the Monthly Channel (Targeted) name when we release the preview of the August feature update.



    In the upcoming weeks, we'll be updating the Office Insider landing page and support documentation to reflect the new names.
