The past month of June has brought only few changes to the Microsoft Search roadmap. Let’s see what we can find there, and highlight what we find important:
Microsoft Search Answers Analytics (Feature ID: 124910)
Did I mention we’re super excited about this one?
Microsoft Search Answer Analytics will provide insights into how editorial content like Bookmarks, Acronyms, and Q&A are performing within the organization. This feature was very awaited by our clients and customers (and ourselves as well!), and we cannot wait to see it in production!
Rollout date shifted from July 2023 to Aug 2023.
In preview, rollout starting Aug 2023.
Microsoft Graph Connectors in GCCH (Feature ID: 124991)
A very important update for government organizations: Microsoft Graph Connectors that allow to index third-party content into Microsoft Graph to enable intelligent experiences like Microsoft Search will be available in GCC-High environments.
In development, rollout starting in September 2023.
Include classic attachments from Outlook in Search (Feature ID: 81922)
Attachments under People Centric Search on office.com shipped in December 2022.
Attachment suggestions from the search box on office.com shipped in March 2022.
Attachments shown in the All and Files tabs are scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
Rolling out since March 2023.
Microsoft Graph connector results in the “All” vertical (Feature ID: 93336)
Results from remote repositories indexed with Microsoft Graph connectors will be displayed in the “All” vertical in Microsoft Bing (when signed in with a work or school account) alongside information from Microsoft 365 apps and services.
Released March 2023.
Message vertical in Office.com now available in GCC and GCC-H (Feature ID: 117389)
If you can’t remember where the message was, in Teams or Outlook, just search for it in Office.com or Bing for work and then go to the Messages tab.
Rolling out since April 2023
This feature allows you to see all the content that the person participates in, with a dual purpose: enable you to find content through people and understand people through their content.
Released March 2023 for GCC and GCC-H
Released May 2023 for DOD
