M365 Changelog: Office for the Web – retiring File Share Embed
MC258428 – Microsoft will be retiring the File Share Embed dialog from Office for the Web (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Visio) beginning July 1st 2021. Instead Microsoft recommends the utilization of SharePoint File Viewer Web Part or existing Graph APIs (e.g. PreviewItem,) which is where they will continue to invest their development resources.
- Timing: early July to mid-July
- Action: review and assess impact for your organization.
How this will affect your organization:
Once this change is made users will no longer be able to generate new embed codes using File Share Embed dialog inside Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Visio for the Web, when this change is implemented.
What you need to do to prepare:
Instead of using File Share Embed dialog from inside the Office for the Web application, Microsoft recommends using the SharePoint Web Part called “File Viewer” or the PreviewItem Graph API to embed Office files inside other web pages. You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
