M365 Changelog: (Updated) Quick Access Teams and Sharepoint Document Libraries in win32 backstage
MC432475 – Updated November 9, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Currently, users experience some frustration when using Office products because of all different routes that they must use to access all their content. The Quick Access feature will allow users to access shared libraries from both their SharePoint and Teams locations. When the user opens files from shared libraries, these libraries will show up in the form of a list which will encourage users to save and open files to these libraries with ease. This helps deliver a more consistent, coherent storage location experience across M365 apps. This new backstage experience won’t show up in Teams, SharePoint, or OneDrive but does include storage locations from OneDrive and Teams (sites/channels) which are stored on SharePoint.
When this will happen:
Targeted Release (if applicable): Microsoft will begin rolling out early October and expect to complete by late January 2023 (previously late October 2022).
Standard Release (if applicable): Microsoft will begin rolling out late January 2023 and expect to complete by late March 2023 (previously late January 2023).
How this will affect your organization:
This feature will make it easier for employees to get access to more of their storage locations, including Microsoft Teams where they may store more of the content for their projects.
What you need to do to prepare:
There is no action needed to prepare for this change. You may want to notify your users about this change and update any relevant documentation as appropriate. This feature will replace the Sites tab in the backstage.
