Microsoft 365 New Features

Roadmap for Microsoft 365

Microsoft Purview compliance portal: Data Lifecycle Management - Record opening behavior improvement in Office client applications (Word, Excel, & PowerPoint)

When a user opens a file in Office client applications (Word, Excel, & PowerPoint) that has a retention label managing the file as a locked record, it will now open as read-only and immediately not allow any user edits. A message will explain to the user why they cannot edit the file. This improvement brings parity to the behavior already in place for the online versions of these Office applications.

Expected Release Date:
June CY2024
