MC467624 – Updated December 15, 2022: Microsoft updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

The ability to format all or a portion of text in text boxes, notes and shapes is coming soon to Whiteboard web, Teams and the Windows app (mobile users will be able to view formatted text but not format it).

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 100497

When this will happen:

Roll out will begin in mid-November and is expected to be completed by early January 2023 (previously late November 2022). 

How this will affect your organization:

Users will be able to apply BoldItalics and/or Underline formatting to all or a portion of text in text boxes, notes & shapes. They can also choose to format the color of text in text boxes. Moreover, each new text box that will be added will have Segoe UI font for higher legibility & also coherence with text in notes & shapes.
