“Hi Jakub, We're working on a number of ways for administrators to customize the home screen and app launcher, but have nothing to announce just yet. Stay tuned in a couple of months for some big updates rolling out to first release customers!”
“Hi Anthony, The experience does not depend on Office Graph, however the recent files section will be richer if Office Graph is enabled. Thanks!”
“Hi Chris and Darrell,
Yes! We're looking to implement these across Office 365 and beyond. Today you'll see them in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, but expect to hear more about this over the coming months.”
“Thanks John! You caught it just before we did. Glad to hear you like the news.”
“Thanks Ivy - the disappearing ellipsis is absolutely not the intended behavior. Are you able to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your tenant ID so that we can look into why your organisation is seeing this? We'll make sure this gets fixed for you!”
“Great feedback - thanks, Adam!
We're investigating how we can help users who relied on these colors to have access to an experience that works for them too! Stay tuned...”
“Hi Ivy - as mentioned above, we haven't made any changes to the ellipsis behavior. Clicking on any of the tiles on the home page should open the application in a new tab.
Regarding the ordering of tiles - we are working to customize this by user, but noted that this would roll-out over time as we're able to learn more about the way each user interacts with the suite. I've removed this mention from the blog post above to reduce confusion.
Are you seeing the ellipsis in your App Launcher? If not, please let me know and I'll have our engineering team investigate for you!”
“Hi Ivy - Thanks for the feedback! We're building the Office 365 home page to be your central launching point for the entire Office 365 suite (including delve) and value your feedback on the information positioning.
Regarding your feedback on the app launcher 'triple dot' - we haven't changed this behavior and you should still see the ellipsis when you open the app launcher (the 'waffle' icon in the top left-hand corner).
“Hi Andrew and Philip,
Thanks for the feedback! During the design phase, we tested both colored and single-color tiles and didn't see a statistically significant improvement to the navigation speed for users. That being said, we know that a lot of users find the colored icons useful, and are looking at how we can improve this experience.”
“Hi Jasper - thanks for the feedback! Stay tuned for some big updates coming to Outlook tasks soon.”
