M365 Changelog: Fixing timestamp format in Teams meeting Transcripts filesM365 Changelog:

MC485792 – Microsoft will be rolling out a fix to update the timestamp format in .docx and .vtt Teams meeting transcript files to follow the WebVTT timestamp standard. More specifically, the current timestamp, for example, 0:0:0.0 –> 0:0:1.890, will be updated to 00:00:0.0 –> 00:00:1.890 after this fix gets rolled out.

Note: If your organization does not have a dependency on the timestamp of .docx or .vtt transcript files you can safely disregard this message.

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling this out in mid-January and expect to complete by the end of January.

What you need to do to prepare:

If your organization takes any dependencies on the timestamp of .docx or .vtt transcript files for discovery, compliance, etc, you will need to update to accommodate the WebVTT timestamp standard.
